Recommend a Fort Collins CO tire balance shop

I'm looking to have the 35's balanced but wish to find a shop that'll do a nice job balancing them. Any recommendations?

Yea, I agree, the machine just tells the operator how much and where to stick the weight so perhaps the thought doesn't matter, but I might as well ask.

Then again, anyone had tires balanced by the machine that also runs the tire against a rolling surface to simulate real world use to detect where weights should be placed? Is that type of machine worthwhile to search out?

I'd easily roll down to Loveland but probably not more than that unless you can sway me.

Thanks - Jim

Discount tire in south Fort Collins has always done well for me.

Thanks.

I ended up taking them to Alpine Tire, local shop near downtown ($10/tire). They are much nicer on the highway now. I only notice vibration starting at ~72MPH (gps), which I rarely ride at (Jeep's happy at 60/65).
