Default Mounting Truck Tires

Does anyone have any tricks to mounting up truck tires so that they don't wobble when their spinning?

Just push all around the tire before it is glued to let the foam settle. For the ultimate performance, balance the tires before you drive the truck.

try using losi's offroad tire glueing kit it comes with losi's ca and rubber bands that are thick enough for offroad tires. the rubber bands realy help with keeping the bead in the rim. even when you used oversized foam.

I started using the trinity tire balancer and lost the majority of my wobble, I would definately reccomend it, saves cash in bearings and arms inthe long run by keeping the vibration at a minimum.
