Tire Balance

Been getting some loose screws and chaffing that destroyed a couple of my slide seals. Thought I would balance these wheels and tires next chance I got.

1 wheel only took 1/4 oz - the other 3 over 6 oz per side which is a lot! I have the G614s and they are 55 lb tires.

Direct tire did the work for $65 but I hauled the wheels to them. These wheels should be balanced using the "lugcentric" method rather than the "hubcentric" on a standard car wheel. If anyone wants to see what that looks like, here is a pic.




I had actually never seen it done before.
