Tires are "force-ground" at the factory if they require it for
balancing purposes, but as Larry says,  nobody really does it
afterwards.  If you have a flat spot from a lockup you may be able to
find a race shop that shaves tires to get this out but if it just
developed this problem on it's own there's probably something wrong
with the tire.
