Remember mention a long time ago of GY warrantying MT/R's that took over xxx grams of weights to balance. Anyone remember this, or had a tire replaced because of it? I have one tire that always takes close to half a pound of weights to balance, no matter what set of wheels I had it on.

Yeah my 33x12.5 mt\r's took a SHIT load of lead to balance and they still aren't right.

I have one as well that took about 5 ounces. When we mounted the others one wanted something like 12 ounces, so we spun it 180 and it only took .5 ounces. The others took less than an ounce as well, but I still have one that has a good bit on it. I guess it's just the luck of the draw.

mine 33 12.50 mt/r were all fine put one, had to put 4 weights on the inside and 2 on the outside. Well you can guess it, weight were sheared off by rocks so now i am unbalanced. NOt bad enough for me to do anything about it though.

any tire smaller than 35" taking more than 10oz of weight is ridiculous. If it takes that much have them unseat the bead and spin it 180. If that doesnt work spin it another 90. If that doesnt work another 180. If that doesnt work have them order you another one.

i agree, 33's should take between 4 and 7oz, sometimes you just get a good tire and it takes less than that, but after the tire shop has done all they can, if it is over 7 you should at least make sure you get some $$ back or something, because that shouldnt really happen...and i bet if you contacted the manufactorer directly you'd have better luck getting a tire replaced then if you just let the tire shop handle it.
