Need advice from the experts.....again... I balanced my first tire today...and was wondering if better to put weights in both sides of rim or just one side? Previously it only had weights on one side when done by dealer.

What kinda wheel are you doing (spoked or Mag), Do you have room down the center of the wheel..

I Use the stickey back weights and run them right down the center...

This keeps any rocks,boulders,twiggs,loggz or the occasional wildlife from jumping out and ripping them off easilly...

That would be the easiest way to do it....

Just put it on and don't worry about it unless it rattles your bike to pieces.

I usually balance my tires (only cause I have acces to a fancy dancy balance machine) , But I've also just mounted the tire and put it on with no problems...

I asume your using a mag wheel with a rib in the center, Just use the stick on weights and put them on the flats any where on the wheel (where it's needed), I just try to put them in the center to keep them outa harms way...

I'm w/Dan on this one. They come from the molds in pretty good balance anymore.

I run them after mounting and if they happen to be out of balance I throw in Dynabeads. Most of the time they need nothing.

I should also mention that I recycle the Dynabeads. I harvest them out of a tire w/a spray can lid.

Most tires have a dot on the sidewall signifying the heavy spot.
I put that where my valve stem is,no wobbles,no worries.

I use Ride-On.. It balances and helps to prevent flats ..And keeps the tire cooler..
Knock on wood I have NEVER had a flat in 200K miles...
I have been using it since 2002...

Avon doesn't put that dot on their tires ..

I know ... I was just making it a good point .. Avon doesn't do that..

And I can only find the ware-bar markers..
