I have a big weight on my right front wheel, and a small weight on my left front. Can this affect a smooth ride?


If your ride vibrates, the most common cause is a wheel being out of balance, but having two different size weights on different wheels is not the problem. Each wheel balances with varying weights. Tires cannot be manufactured perfectly, and have a heavy side. The wheel weights offset the heavy part of the tire, so the worse the heavy spot is in the tire, the more weight will be needed to correct the defect.
