    39.5\'s and balancing

    When I'm at 60-65 MPH, my truck rides as smooth as glass /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif. I have 39.5" TSL's and they're not balanced. I think this is odd because they ride better than my 35's at that speed. Anybody else experience this with large tires and not balanced?

    maybe you have other steering probs and the unbalanced tires are just offsetting it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif j/k man. i don't know anything bout that i just felt like postin. later.

    Something like that. I can usually find a "Sweet spot" where it rides real nice. After some time it starts to wobble and if I can my speed up a small amount, the wobble goes away for awhile. I used to have the tire shop balance them but the big fat sticker weights they put on ussually peel right off. So I gave up and didnt notice a big difference.

    One of my 33" Radial TSL takes almost 7 ounces of weight. I guess some people just are lucky /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Ya, if you find the right speed it rides great. It'll kinda shake a little after 70 but overall these tires are great.

    Who needs balancing? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
