I was able to mount and balance my own tires this weekend. I have only done dirt tires in the past so changing these where a real pinic, no bead locks, no tubes, wow..how can this be? Anyway after alot of dish soap, checking for tire dots for the light area on tire ( which go towards the valve stem), I got it done. As for the balancing, we just used 2 4X4's standing on end about 18" long, then nailed a chunk of 2x10" on the base about 16" long. My neighbor is real good with wood so he slapped it together in no time. We notched the end of the 4x4" so the axle nut would rest in it as we only wanted tha axel to rest in the notch. We spun it a couple of times and marked the tire, seemed as if the valve stem was the heavy area which kept going to the bottom. Added a couple of stick on weights and repeated the process. All worked out great, zipped it up to 95mph today and stable as a rock. Important things to do is make sure the tire is plumb in the 4x4's, remove spacers so there is no drag, and be sure you have the sprocket on, and have removed prior weights. Wipe the rim with alcohol soaked rag before sticking on lead weights. Get some good spoons for removal and use soap to remove and remount the tire. I did not even need the spoons for the front tire, just used soap and my arms to get it on the rim. Saved some $$ in the process. Try it, if you live out in the sticks like I do, its well worth the effort and will more than likely be a better job than your local dealer. I know I put at least 30 minutes in the rear tire balancing as it had a dot on it, so it took more time. Front was done in about 15. When you can spin it and it stops in a random place everytime, your good to go.
