    I am having trouble finding a place around where I live that can balance my 37" boggers so I wonder if any of the stuff you can buy to pour into the tires to balance them actually work and if it does what do you recommend.

    It really depends how fussy you are, and how egg-shaped your Swampers are (they are ALL egg-shaped, it's really just a question of degree!)

    Do a search on "tire truing" and you'll find my original post with pics. I was pretty fussy about getting mine ROUND, and now they are. After truing, there is no need for golf balls, BBs, powder or excessive lead weights on the rim.
