    Beadlock wheels.

    I was wondering what everyone has found to be the best way to balance beadlock wheels. I.e. using sticky whights, dyno beads, or any other why people have found to make them balance out good for highway use. Thats in advance for input.

    Mounted them myself in my garage then took them to a local America's tire. They balanced them with sticky weights. Some took just a few some took a bunch. No shimmy or vibrations.

    After mounting my 37" Nittos on ATX Slabs I took the Jeep to Discount Tire. They actually gave me a lifetime balance for ~$100.

    Road force balanced mine and had some sticky weights insallee on the inner wheel. It didn't take much cause mine were balanced up to 65 mph. At 66 tho I got a balance wobble

    Good thread responses. I am glad to know that Discount Tire will do the lifetime balance thing. I might look into that.

    I run beadlocks on my jeep, have had no issues with either my walker evans, or my current atx slabs. I didnt get them balanced and dont really have any issues but thats kind of typical with slabs and trail grapplers. I daily drive on them as well.

    My 37's need a couple sticky weights...I retaped over them with Gorilla tape to make sure they stayed in place.

    Just did a 2400 mi rndtrip to Moab from Seattle mostly at 75 mph...no problems.

This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
