Anyone having trouble balancing their tires? I balanced mine like 5 and no better. Could I have a tire out of round?

Just a picture I thought I would add. Nothing having to do with tire quality or anything. Someone let the air out of my tire last night.

11,500 mile comparison to new duratrac

so after i was able to get a replacement from Tire Rack i thought i would post some good comparison shots of the tread wear after 11,500 miles. these tires were installed 9-25-2010 and i sliced the sidewall 6-11-2011. So i got almost a year of DD duties and 3 wheeling trips on them when i sliced the sidewall.

Wow, that looks pretty good! From what I can tell it looks like you only lost about a 1/4" of tread (give or take, I haven't calibrated my eye lately) in your last 11,500 miles. I really think this may be my next tire. Thanks for the pics. It's great to see some real world data on a product. But the really amazing thing is that you've only put 11,500 miles on a daily driver in a years time! Ha ha

I ask random questions that are relative to my train of thought. Please, just humor me.

I bought the jeep used with 65k miles in november of 07. it now has 120k miles. so 55k miles in under 4 years. so just around 15k miles per year average. since then I bought my wife an 08 Rav 4. so we drive the jeep less.

i would say that the wear is closer to 1/8 of an inch.

Yeah, 1/8" is more like it. Like I said, my eye hasn't been calibrated lately.

31'' on 15" rims, I had them rotated on a digital tire balancer, not sure if same thing or not. Would BB's work with 31"

not sure exactly what a digital tire balancer is, but i would assume that a regular tire balancer (most new ones are digital) is not the same as a road force balancer.

your 31's should balance fine on a standard balancer, but maybe not. the road force balancer is much more realistic and accurate for larger tires. you might ask the tire shop to break the bead on the rim and rotate the tire on the rim.

Based on the reviews here, I ordered (4) 245/75 R16 Duratracs today for my 2000 XJ.

Ordered them from Tire Rack.

I hope they are as good as the reviews. Hoping for something that is a good daily driver tire
that will be decent for the very very rare off road experience. (saving that for the CJ).

I'll post pics when they are mounted.

I've a set of MT/R Kevlars now and I love them to death. If GY releases the 35" Duratrac before I need to replace the Kevlars, I will definitely buy the Duratracs.

My Kevlars look brand new after about 12.5-15k miles though, so GY's got some time.

i had to do that with 3 of mine. when i balanced mine, they wanted close to 8oz each. i spun them 180 degrees and they called for around 3oz.
