I bought a new tire from J&P Cycle and have mounted it and am now balancing it. I am useing a static balancer that I have use several times. I started adding weight and thought I was using to much so I broke the bead down and rotated the tire 180 derees and tried again, and it nowhas about 100 grams of wieght on it, the manual says no more than 70 grams to the rear tire.

The mark on the tire was at the valve stem and that is where I added weight the first time, rotated the tire and the weight has followed the tire, it is now 180 from valve stem.

Could the tire weight be off that much or could there be something else going on.


These are E3 Dunlops

This is how I do it with my $37HF Wheel Balancing stand, Keith.

PS - I like to find the heavy spot on the bare rim 1st(after I've cleanedup the inside shoulder) and then mount the tire so the 'dot' is matched up with the heavyspot I marked on the rim. I rarely have to use any weights that way.

Personally I use Dyna Beads - 2oz in the tire works great!

I am using Dyna Beads as well......I looked at Ken's balancing gizmo ....looks like it would work.Dont the Dyna Beads do a good job??

I just had new set of tires E3's and valve stems (yup got it done Ken) and would consider lead weights if anyon can give me good reason to not use Dyna Beads.

Remove the tire and all weights. Try "trial balancing" the bare rim to find the heavy spot and fitting the dot on the tire (light spot) to the known heavy spot on the wheel and then re-balance the whole assembly. If it still exceeds takes a lot of weight, tire is out of spec and needs to be replaced.

I would take it to a friendly tyre balancer with a balance machine. These machines are so accurate they even pick up on which side of the wheel needs the weight. Any tyre shop that sells bike tyres should be capable of doing a good job!

If it aint broke?....don\'t fix it?....keep riding it!

Dyna Beads or antifreeze. Either works great.
