Default Front tire balance

I just had new Dunlop Elite 3 tires put on front and back. The dealer said that the front tire is 13 grams out of balance. He doesn't recommend putting weights on for that small amount of imbalance. What do you guys think? Do you think that I will notice anything with that amount of imbalance or should I get him to put weights on my Anvil rims?

Dynabeads work great.

The first time you skid, you'll change the balance anyway, why bother? I changed my E3s with 12k miles and they rode fine the entire time. Don't sweat the petty stuff, pet the sweaty stuff...

http://www.ride-on.com/ is another good option plus it helps give you some puncture protection. I have been using it for a while and it works great as a balancer. Luckily never had to try the puncture resistance.

Just ride it. It won't really make a difference.
