RE: FINAL: Wheel and Tire

You're a better friend than I would be.  The wheel would also be
replaced at the cardiologist's expense if he were my friend.  I mean
even though you probably said something like, "hey check this out, isn't
it neat?", he should still have taken the same level of care with your
car as he would in his own.  Maybe he did...   ??

As for a wheel balancing correcting a pull.... Doubtful.  I would employ
the same method as many people do with doctors... get a second opinion
(on the state of your alignment).
