Mud tire mounting question?

Just went and got my Goodyear mtr kevlar's mounted and balanced on a 15x10 rim. My question is what numbers should they be mounted at? I know realisticly they should be at 0 but I'm just checking if the guys at the shop got lazy cause they were having a hard time. They got them to around 5 to 15 on insides and out. Is that bad?

What exactly is your question? If 5 to 15 is ounces of lead then that is a lot!

If the machine was calibrated to grams then that is fine, if it set to ounces, um, well 15 oz is almost a pound.

I have no idea, when he first put the tires on it said like 60 / 120 or something like that then he brought it down to 10 / 15 or 5 / 15. Theres plenty of weight on the tire I think
