Nice tires /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I was considering them when I move into the 44" tire range. How are they in comparison to a Bogger?

equal is a sand like powder that they put in the tires to balance them. don't ever get them balanced with weights. i have heard all kinds of good things about it. if you air down your tires and spin one on the rim, the EQUAL will balance the tire automatically once you get moving. the only time you need to worry about replacing it is if you take the tire off the rim or get it replaced

He was referring to the "equal" in your tires. If you get water vapor, or any type of moisture in there, the equal clumps together like a giant mudball inside your tires. It's basicly like adding water to a handfull of flour /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
