    Ok , I have searched and read through alot of posts.

    The problem I have is my tires are out of Balance/round?? ,which is causing DW at about 30mph.

    they are stock ten bolts , and it gets going so violently that it's all you can do to keep it under control until you get slowed down or stop.

    Now are there any back yard methods of balancing old used tires?

    All the front end parts are tight except for the steering box shaft having a little play in it

    Is there any new info out there? :ears:

    Thanks

    find the 2 best tires and put them on the frt.


    and or go to a shop and if thay have a bubble balencer have them balence them with it. only if thay are bias tires . i am in the tire bissness and have found that works best for big bias tires like swampers.

    *-Thanks , I forgot to mention that these are old 35X14 gumbo monster mudders

    I know where there is an old manual bubble balancer but I am so poor right now the only way for me to do anything with them has to be free :blush:

    jack up frt tire and spin by hand and look for the jumping up and down. then mark it good or o.k. or bad . then do other 3 and put best 2 on the frt .

    and if bias get them warm first as cold thay will be flat spoted. run them for about 10-15 min to get warm and no flat spots. goodluck to ya buddy.
