Post by tyler » Wed Jan 13, 2016 10:27 am

I want to say you need more. I think I have more than that in my tires and I have 35's.

I'll try to find my receipt, which told me how much they put in, when I get home from work. I thought it was like 10-12 ounces though. Yeah I'm still running the powder. It's not really powder, just tiny beads. Works great from what I've seen so far.

Not sure you will have much luck with asking a tire place to balance them using pellets. You can try adding more but my experience with Interco tires is they are notoriously difficult to balance. Beads or regular weights.

Yeah but it's easier than trying to balance a big tire like that with weights on a Harbor Freight wheel balancer. Don't try that. Talk to Ken's Service Center in Columbia. They did mine and I was very happy with them. I didn't get around to finding my receipt last night, but I'll look when I can.

What weight pellets did you use? The cheap K-mart .12g ones were useless for me. Added another 8oz of .28g pellets in each tire and they did the trick.

Btw, with that heavy tire you definitely need more weight than 8oz. The pellets need to counteract the out of balance parts of the tire with an equal offsetting weight, and with a heavy 36" tire the half a pound of pellets probably wouldn't be enough.
