    Thats right, took the cruiser in to get the truxus tires balanced. I had those guys cursing me. :D I just chuckled when they took the keys cause i knew they were in deeper than they though. I think they need to go back to the weight store as i used about all the lead they had in there.

    Have they tried spinning the wheel on the rim? Sometimes that helps...

    The guys at my tire place are getting to know me pretty well -- I take mine in after every 4wheeling trip -- seems I get tire spinning on the wheels each time...

    :D
    Not just the foot :flipoff2:

    Just seems that every time I air down and spend more than a few hours on the trail, I get the tire spun on the wheel.

    I get free balances though so it's not a huge problem. I was a drag having the rig shake so much on the way back from Moab. Almost 900 miles of vibration from the rear tires :eek:

    I just got a new set of Thornbirds for an off-road set. It sure took a lot of weight to balance those puppies too.

    I had a BFG AT KO that absolutely would not balance--even after remounting--so I was given a brand new tire on the house. The tire was my spare and had never touched pavement and STILL would not balance.
