We generally use road force to find which tire to replace instead of swapping the whole set. Rarely do we spin them to "hide"(fix) the problem. Sometimes we will if the tires is worn down a fair amount and it cannot be warrantied with a free replacement.
It's also easy to check if it's that bad. Rotate your tires and see if the bounce changes in any way.
To me a 30-40 mph vibration is not a balance issue. Granted out of round, balance, and road force are totally different types of vibrations.
I have been in the tire business myself for 20 years. My grandpa started it in1963. I have found a "few" tires that road forcing helps. But replacing the tire solved the problem as well. We only road force a set if the vehicle comes back with a problem. Road force is not accurate unless the vehicle has been driven and the tires have settled in. I will say that 90 percent of the tires I have a had a road force issue with are Goodyear and bfg Kos and ko2s.
