hardly any place can balance 33s
 
i've been searching for a place to get my 33s to be balanced and hardly any place around here can and the place i bought it from can't even do it why would they sell this and can't even perform other services for it F&*$(^@)(&_%&*@_ :D ok :cool:

derekshep 01-07-2011 05:05 PM

why not, i get 37's balanced at any tire place. why cant they do 33's

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..... :D 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

I'm running 33's right now....

exboomer 01-07-2011 07:41 PM

I bet they would balance them if they were selling the tires to you.

DEERE G 01-07-2011 07:43 PM

NTB balanced my 33's a couple weeks ago. Is there a NTB near you?

i called them too and only one responded that they can except i have to bring it in on monday because they are running a special so they will be very busy and they might lose my wheels and tires thanks

rbloodhound 01-07-2011 09:27 PM

Might loose your wheels and tires? WTF?

hound2005tj 01-07-2011 09:52 PM

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?

Plowboy517 01-08-2011 09:36 AM

I get mine done at big o. Haven't lost a wheel yet lmao

UnlimitedLJ04 01-08-2011 10:28 AM

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 didnt have any luck with dynabeads, i live in michigan and they dodnt seem to work as well in cold weather. they were put in 315 x 70 x 17 bfg ats. tryed them for two weeks and had them removed.

MickeTJ 01-08-2011 10:52 AM

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.

I've heard lots of good things about these but I don't have any first hand experience with them.

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.
