when the tire is new ( box size ) when entering turns the sidewalls tend to roll over. when you true the tire it cuts the tire down then you round the edges to reduce chances of chunking the tire ( chunk comes off the side ) Truers also allow you to cut the foam down to size which allows the car to handle much better hope this helps.
