    Your wheel weights are WAAAAAAAY off. The methods are race wheels and are made as such, and thus, are some of the lightest beadlocks around, weighing in at 36lbs WITH ring and bolts. (I verified this with them directly.). The DirtyLife wheels (that I love and was going to get myself) are over 52lbs with ring and bolts, which is EXCEPTIONALLY heavy.....

    This post is for future readers that may be browsing for this info.

    Racers donít use the same wheels you buy. They wouldnít hold up. They used forged wheels. Totally different.

    Sorry should have been more specific, I meant method as a company, not the specific wheel, although I saw somewhere where a rig was running the 105s in an actual sanctioned race.

    Looking for a tire shop in the Chicago area that will mount and balance beadlocks. Our shop wonít do it. I could mount them using Eddieís write up but Iím assuming I would still need them balanced. This will be our first set of beadlocks so any info would be appreciated.

    I've never balanced any beadlocks. If you have good tires there's no need.

    Probably have to go to an off-road shop to have them mounted. Do it yourself then go anywhere to have them balanced.

    Balancing mine cleaned up a lot of vibration at highway speed, the shop that did the balance wanted me to put a few hundred miles on them first. They spun them for 20 each worst one took almost 8 ounces which is better than any of the 36" interco's I mounted in the early 2000's...
