Couldnít believe how great everything turned out

Just got done putting 35ís on my Willys. Mounted and balanced them myself. Have already done posts on how I modified my HF tire changer and how I modified the wheels from my wifeís Ď08 Sahara.
Used above mentioned HF tire changer and my NoMar tire bar. Installing the Atturo 35x12.5x18 Trailblade M/Tís was super easy ($195/free shipping, no tax). Balanced the wheels on a HF wheel balancer. Have used it with good results on smaller tires but the larger tires balanced out surprisingly well. I travel 90 miles a day to and from work, mostly highway, and these tires ride exceptionally smooth. No shimmy whatsoever. The tires are unbelievably quiet for being MTís with an aggressive tread. They have out performed the stock BFG MTís on dry and wet pavement but have yet to use them off-road and in snow.
Reprogrammed tire size with my FlashPaq and am running one of the tunes offered on it and am currently getting 18.4 mpg. Thatís only a 0.4 drop from stock 32Ē tires. I am very happy with the end results of everything used! Will have to post up pics of the mounted tires when I get the chance.

Update: month and a half Iíve had these on my Wrangler and 1,500 miles, the Atturoís show little to no wear. What ever wear there is show no signs of being uneven so again, Iím very happy. Good to know an extremely inexpensive wheel balancer from HF can do a great job on 35Ē tires. Update on my flashcal upgraded to flashpaq tune, Iím currently getting, regularly, 19.2-19.7 mpg. This is with steel rear bumper, winch/winch plate, rock sliders, oil pan/transmission skid plates, and 35Ē tires. What Iím saying is Iíve added a lot of weight to the Jeep over stock and Iím getting the same mpgís as when it was new.
Only pic I have with the tires mounted on Jeep so far:
