The paint dot on the sidewall of a new tire- that marks the heavy spot right? Or is that the light spot?

I'm pretty sure that's the heavy side. I think it gets lined up with the valve stem. Crap...google it! Oh, and I guess the rest of these guys never had new tires before?

^^Interesting, but I don't think I understood it all- I'll have to re-re-re-read that.
I just had 4 tires mounted on my rims and the guy lined the dots up with the valve stems- but I thought I used to line the dot up opposite the valvestem when I mounted my bike's tires. When I had a bike. So that's why I asked.

Thanks for the info everyone.
