    I did not know that. As mentioned they have no problem balancing and rotating them. They just won't mount or break them down.

    Yep, and exactly the same reason why they wonít put bigger tires on my dually. Too much liability to come back on them if anything goes wrong.

    Wish it worked that way here. I buy my tires from them but mount them myself and take them to another shop to have them balanced. Itís a pain.

    They actually have a corporate bulletin in their system that states what they can and canít do. Most stores just donít know that but if you walk in and tell them to look it up they will find it.

    They CAN:
    -Rotate and Balance
    -Break down the back bead if you bring it in loose with the front off

    They CANíT:
    -break down the tires
    -break a back bead if it was pulled off in the parking lot
    -Pull a tire off the wheel even if carried in without the ring
    -Put a tire on the wheel.

    OP for what itís worth, Iím running 37Ē Ridge Grapplers on Trail Ready beadlocks and havenít balanced them. They could probably use a little weight on one or two, but not enough to matter much.

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.
