    This ^^^^ You won't find a single weight on any of my KMC XD231's. The Chamber Pro II's that Moby is running has nothing out of the norm in terms of weights.

    I was trying to be facetious, but my keyboarding doesn't convey it as well as my inside voice sounds when typing.

    As Iíve never run 37ís or BeadLocks, do you just not balance them? You mentioned no weights? What about those bead sacks that go inside?

    I balanced mine. I donít know why large tires on beadlocks would be different from any other tire/wheel combo. Some shops canít or wonít touch them, but if you find a shop that will do it, why not?

    I didn't balance mine, I run 35 Toyo MT's. I didn't notice any issues and have 50,000 km with no wear issues. Any that we do balance we typically road force for them. If I had issues when I first ran them I would have probably balanced them.

    I think a lot of shops have the conception the bigger the tire the more weight they will need. We have had some that were a bitch to balance.

    The best way to install those bags of beads is to go to a really high hill and throw the fuckers over it. All 4 of them They don't work. At all.

    I couldn't find a shop to balance my Chamber Pros/Cooper STT's when I installed them 3 years ago. No one would touch them. Hoinestly, until they got about 25-30k miles on them they were fine. As they wore they started to give me some vibrations above 70 so I tried the bags. Total waste of time. Did absolutely nothing. I ended up shop vacuuming them out after I found a shop that would balance them for me. The only imbalance those damn things help with is felt between the ears.

    :
    My coffee came out of my nose, I was laughing so hard. Discount will balance your 37s and beadlocks for $25 a tire. They wonít touch the mounting. I just had my XD s and SST pros done. All the wheels took less than 5 oz to balance, I thought that was pretty good given the weight of the tires.
    Iím not sure why anyone would drill holes in a perfectly good new wheel, Iíd get sick at my stomach. No thanks.

    We had a truck show up one time with vibration issues. spun the wheels up and didn't matter what we did we could not get to balance, checked after putting on the weights and was out every time. turned out it had beads in it, still all in the bag they came in.

    It's like cutting frame brackets to install long arm. was nervous until the first cut , after that it's like "WTF no turning back now".

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. 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.
