Try a tire place that does tractor trailers etc. You often find them near truck stops etc. Thats where I had mine done and they are perfect.

Dynabeads are your best friend. Check them out. Once you go Dynabead, you never go back..... Plus, you never have to worry about throwing a weight.

Here's a link......

they said that their machines can't do it then they shouldn't sell any tires with that size and up and some of them refuse to do it on an aftermarket wheels because they don't know the torques specs they just have a lot of excuses thanks

What kind of reputable place would actually have the balls to tell someone they might possibly lose their wheels and tires? Do they just want to go under?

I got my 33's balanced at Discount Tire. Twice so far. My buddy works there, he road force balanced them when installing the tires on wheels. The manager of the Discount Tire has a YJ on 38s. he balanced his bias 38s on the same type of machine that did my 33s.

Moral of the story - you need to find a new tire shop, the ones you have been to are incompetent if they can't balance a 33. Some trucks come stock with 33s, and even 35s.

I dont know where to buy it in the states, cause I live in Sweden.

But i found a similar product on this webpage http://www.innovativebalancing.com/gallery1.htm

It should work the same way

Was there any junk inside your tires? A buddy of mine used some fix-a-flat in his Toyota pickup after using dynabeads and it screwed everything up. He didn't have a flat anymore, but his tires were unbalanced due to the fix-a-flat gumming up the dynabeads.

I have never been to a tire shop that couldn't balance any size tire. May I suggest the old fashioned yellow pages. I would call local tire shops until someone said yes.

Where in Maryland are you? Close to PA? If so, I know several places near the Maryland border that have always done a great job balancing tires for me. If you are near 81, check out Bill Bowers tire in Greencastle. Its right off exit 5 on 81; they've balanced all my 33"+ tires without problem.
