I am getting a hand installing the trail master tires and the chain/sprocket today. I am just going to drive to someone's house with all my parts and he is going to get me a hand.

So many people are helping us our on the trip its really amazing. I can do this myself with the travel tools but it takes about 3 hours per tire. The only thing i am worried about is balancing. Has anyone ever statically balanced a tire on the axil? If i take the brake off is the friction low enough on the axil using the wheel bearings? What happens with a badly balanced front or back tire? Can i use car tire balancers in Mexico?
There are 3,000 pictures (from north america more to come) and a diary of our trip on our facebook page at the link below.
