I also got mine done at Wal-Mart. I had to bring the wheels separate from the Wrangler, but they did mount and balance them for me and I've had no vibes.

I guess it depends on what WalMart you go to. I brought mine to the one near me one evening, and I was the only customer they had (it was just before Christmas). They must have been bored looking for something to do, because they jumped at the chance to work on my Jeep to rebalance the tires (285/75/16") that I did not purchase there. They also must have rechecked the torque on the lugnuts at least twice (they told me they do it a couple of times to make sure someone doesn't drive off and then complain their wheels fell off) before I left.

And they sell 33" tires at WalMart, so I don't know why they would tell someone they don't have enough air pressure to air up 33" tires. Maybe someone was lazy there and just didn't want to work that day.

By the way... I love the smell of new tires.

I really cant understand this. Lots of new vehicles come with tires in the 33 range and tire shops do it all the time.
I do understand some shops not wanting to balance big heavy 38"+ tires due to the stress it puts on the machine at spin startup, but 33s arent very big.
Beleive it or not, try local new dealerships, they usually have very good equipment and are cheaper than a tire shop, only downfall is they are on a schedule so it is usually drop them off in the morning and pick up that afternoon. I use my local chevy dealer and it is $24 total to balace a set of 4 and yes, they have done 33s for me on more than 1 occasion.
