Mitas Dakar E-07 rear tire issue

Out of round and required excessive amount of weights to balance.

Tire size: 150/70-17 69 T TL
Purchase date: 9/25/2016
Supplier: Revzilla
Lot #: 000655

Sent back to Revzilla for replacement. Replacement received from same lot. Same issue. Rear wheel measured with dial gauge for straightness. .005 / .005 radial and axial, well within spec (shop manual allows up to .080).

I've never had any issues with tires until Mitas. I ran Heidenau K60 Scouts with no issue.

Is it regular or dakkar? Are they marked with blue dots?
