just to let you know you can to a static balance on those wheels. obvlously it will only put the weights on the inside. they will either use the stick on kind or the kind that you have now only on the inside. there might only be one problem that would stop you from using the stick on kind is if your rims barly fit over your calipers for your breaks. i would use the hit on ones to be safe. the truck looks sick btw

holy crap, thats a new record for me to see. You need like tungsten weights or something. If that guy was able to zero out the balance machine with weights like that, I'm impressed!

New Wheels look 100000000000x better!!! Make the tires look better poportioned too!! Yeah unfurtunately the way you have it balanced is the best way though there are other ways. Static balancing doesn't give you a good true balance and doesn't seem to hold as long either. I have mine balanced the same way and would sacrafice the weight being on the outside for ride quality anyday but that my 2 cents!! NOW GET THAT FREAKIN BL ON!!!! HURRY UP ALREADY!!!!

Put the wieghts on the inside. Its kinda ridiculous the guys that installed the tires didnt do that in the first place.

He means that he is slightly retarded, and that he didn't know that Tys 4X4 stood for Tyler's 4X4.
