Thanks guys, I did check the balance of the rim and found the heavy side and matched it ot the light side of the rubber and got the weight from 100 grams down to 56 grams.
We'll go with this for now and may order some dyna beads.

I have Ride-on in the tires. Bretter than antifreeze as it seals upto 1/4" puntures as well as ballances as you drive. Smoothest ride I've had yet and no more wobbles

While you have the heavy spot identified would be a good time to put a mark on the rim for future identification. The light spot on the tire will be different for each tire but the heavy spot on the rim will always be the same!!

Added Dyna Beads yesterday and rode it today, it is a good ride which is what I would expected. How many miles do you guys get out of your tires on the beads.

It\'s not what you buy, it\'s what you build.

Hi Keith
I used beads in my E3's and I changed my tires after last season at 18,000 miles. That is very good from my perspective. I always had enough tread on my back tire where I was not affraid of wet conditions until the last week of riding which for me was Nov 5th last year. The front I ran into a bit of trouble with some cupping but I think that may had more to do with a front wheel bearing that was going for most of the season. I also ran my tires a little soft ( around ) 40 psi in the front and 42 in the rear. This seaon I will be running 42 in the front and 42 - 44 in the rear. I did run Metzies one year and enjoyed the ride but only got about 12000 miles out of them and they began to look like racing slicks, nice riding tire but a bit short on life for me. I know there are some that swear by them, I respect that I just prefer the E3' . Dusty Boots does some major milage every year and I would check with him for an opinion and report on tires.

Regards,

Greener
