If you don't use rim locks balancing is optional. If you do you need to balance.

Really? A car ramp and a truck? My heel usually works pretty well on off road rims. You should try changing tubeless street tires. Those are the ones with hard to break beads.

Which wheel weights you guys prefer. The type that clip to your spokes or stick to your rim?

Thanks

My experience with motorcycles tires is that it's all technique, I once had an Argentinian tire guy patch a puncture on my bike using a piece of metal from the ground, he didn't even remove the wheel from the bike...

You can always run dual rim locks too they balance themselves out. Just use the lite locks.

Which size rim locks should be used for the rear wheel?

  • 1.40"
  • 1.60"
  • 2.15"

And . . . the price is each, so I'll need two for the rear wheel if I don't want to add weights for balancing?

Are locks important for the front?

(I'm at work and need to finish placing my order but I can't measure my tire)

Mega-Thanks!
