They ride better but not perfect. I have looked into the Dyna beads,
the ones that you can load in through the valve stem.

Check the Innovative Balancing website, I'm fairly sure you can run them with your existing wheel weights to dail in your 35's. Hope this helps and your ride looks awesome how you have it set-up now!

3 tires had to be broken down and rotated on the rim. 1 would not balance so we put that as the spare. 2 front are fine and 2 rear are "ok", balanced but not perfect.

I might still do the beads in the future so I won't have to worry about it again. What a pain is the ass...... Lol

kjeeper10 Bull s**t

I have two tires that needed to be broken down and rotated on the rim. Still show excessive road force. Was able to balance to 0 but still wobbly. Tech says there is nothing I can do about it.
1 was done yesterday and I go back today for the other.
Will see how it drives after.

I asked about balancing beads but he was clueless.

Depending on how the jeep drives I might consider them still.

Peepers You could try petes tire barn in south windsor. their website lists commercial applications so they might have a ballence machine big enough.

Both shops I've been to, one gave up. Other said "those 35's are BIG and knobby", "there is no way your gonna get the perfect". Others won't attempt because they're "to big" lol..... I call bullshit. They just won't take the time to do it right.

1 tire shows excessive runout on the road force machine (spare) and 2 others are close (rears)
Vibes entire jeep on the highway

Considering Dyna Beads if I can't find a shop to balance my tires. Thinking this may be my best bet ??

CT peeps help me out here

Good luck!
Sue thanks

Wish I had a tire balancer lol

I found Valley truck in Ellington. Totally forgot about them. They specialize in 4x4 work so 35's are small in their eyes lol.

What is the name of the place ?
