Does the mobile fitter bring a tire balancer, and tire machine? Or does he break them down manually?

Tyre machine for breaking bead but balances manually.  I watched him do it and he spun the wheel watched it stop and judged the weight needed.  As far as I can tell perfectly.  He also said that the side walls of RP4 GTs are a bit softer than others so run 42 42 (i am running 40 42 from before anyway)  so we set 40 42 and for me to try.  I might try 42 42 after a bit so I can compare properly. 

As an aside. Also he said the cupping I had on the sprint with 021s was the dual compound wearing between the hard and the soft. 

Interesting chap only did motorbike tyres.
