Tire balance

Looking for a competent shop in the Charlottesville area that can handle balancing my big () 33" MT/R's. I have been to 2 different places and none of them seem to get it right. Thanks.

Sometimes what people think is a tire balance issue really isnt a tire balance issue.

Walmart and airsoft pellets. Plus you get a nice waterfall sound effect every time you come to a stop.

I would try the airsoft bb's. Have them in my truck and it works great. But since
You've been to 2 different places I'm leaning towards it being a bad tire, un-true rim, or bent axle mabe.

The bb's won't work, I tried that. Save your $ and find a shop that has a road force machine.

Ty for all the replies. I did not have the shaking at 55-65 until I had new tires installed plus 10 oz. per tire that shops put on them seems a bit excessive to me. I have to check into the bad tire idea as I heard of bad MT/R's out there (I thought that was figured out though). Road force was my next try and then new wheels maybe.

That's interesting. They work just fine on my 35s. 75mph down the highway with no vibes.

Road force would be a great idea also. Gotta narrow down the culprit.
