I have seen others on this forum use the same wording "wear in" or "break in", so I was assuming that this was somewhat normal. I am assuming now that the fans are rubbing at higher speeds because they are not balanced.

It happens because stock fans are not balanced they vibrate and the imballance is what causes the run and wear. Should not be a problem - however - if it's bad enough it can cause the blades to fail and spit them all out the back.
I have searched the forum and can not really find a way or method to properly balance a fan. Is there a tool I can buy to balance them? How do you do it?
