Is there some reason why every time I take my wheels to the local mom & pop shop for tire changes some damn mechanic decides he needs to remove the captive spacers - and destroy my wheel bearing oil seals? WTF?! I don’t see any issue with balancing the tires with the spacers in place .... do you guys? My balancer has its own bearings on either side of the balancing rod so there is absolutely no reason to need to depend on engaging the wheel bearings themselves (requiring removing the spacers). After this happening today I more than likely won’t make the (paid for) track day on Sunday; unless these oil seals are REALLY common and don’t have to be ordered.... arrrrrgggg!
