does anyone have an idea on how to balance 39" super swamper tires?
I use equal powder balance.
Take it to a shop and have them balance the tires. I paid $13.99 a tire for lifetime balance and free rotations at Sears. Their machines handle up to 40" tires, so they could probably do it for you. The thing rides like a cadillac, even though they're a little out of round. One needed 9 ounces of weight...
i am in the tire bissness and have found that the old style of bubble balenceing is best for the big old bias ply tires.
I run 39.5 TSLs on 12 bolt Double Bead locks with no weight. I had bought a bunch of golf balls to put in them but wanted to try them first with nothing. Its a little rough around 45 mph but before or after that it's fine so I left it like that.
Another alternative to golf balls are bbs or air soft pellets. I've heard that the bbs build heat and the air soft pellets are the way to go. There is a chart on www.innovativebalancing.com that gives you an idea on how many ounces to use per tire. It looks like you would need 12oz. The product that they are selling on this site looks alot like the air soft pellets.
