I am a little confused about this whole balenceing thing

i have got my rear tire changed out from a 2ct power pilot to another 2ct power pilot and i saw the shop just mount the tire... then i asked then if the wheel was balanced and they told me there is no need to balance it cause its is the same tire that was on the rim... dont every time the tire is mounted on the rim it need to be balanced?? correct me if i am wrong, I dont wanna spend 50 bucks to just mount the tire. i want it balanced as well! help..

It needs to be balanced.

"... no need to balance it cause its is the same tire that was on the rim..."
This is complete bullshit.


ETA:
I do know some people that don't worry about balancing MC tires. However, that is not my opinion. I want my tires balanced.

It needs to balanced, and for what they're charging they should do it. Every tire, even if the same model is slightly different.

Balancing the rear wheel is not as important like balancing the front, chances are you won't have any problems or notice anything. I do think they should have balanced it since it takes about 2 mins. to do.

If you have a cycle gear near you they will balance any tire for free even if you didn't get it from them, you have to bring them the wheel off the bike of course.

Excuse the grammar, I'm an English teacher.

*if* you put the tire back on the way it came off (mark the location) you don't need to balance it. If you mount the tire to a random location, or make other changes that can affect it then it needs to be balanced.

But that's assuming the person that put on the tire before did it correctly. And based on the fact they screws him this time I bet it was wrong before.

They are also probably not putting the balance mark on the tire at the valve stem. On Mich tires the mark is a bar code on the bead. you can't see once the tire is mounted. on Dunlops it is a yellow circle, on perelli it is a red mark. These marks should line up with the valve stem when mounted. As for taking a tire off and replacing it with the same make and model tire and not having to balance it because of that is nonesense. Often when mounting tires I would check the bakance with the old weights and sometimes the new tire and wheel would be balanced out ok, but more often I would have to strip the weights and rebalance the tire and wheel.
