Default Looking for a tire balancer...

Do you guys know of any good tire balancers? I want to be able to do all my tires, not just small touring tires and such, it needs to be big enough to do maxx tires. I think Du-bro makes one, but I dont know a part number, and the trinity one looks nice, but its not very big. Thanks.

I have the Dubro one, which it actually just a prop balancer and it works great... The biggest feat you'll have is finding lead tape... Try a golf store or tennis store, they use lead tape to weight the clubs and raquets...

Don't know if you could do Maxx tires, haven't tried yet...

Do you have a part number for the dubro balancer? its not magnetic right? The lead tape was the easy part, took about 5mins at the local golf store.

Top flight balancer is very good but for maxx tires I don't know. I've used it for stadium truck tires.

Basicly any RCstore that does airplanes have them. I use them for balancing my touringcar tires.

I also use a magnetic balancer. It is designed to balace items for airplanes and helicopters. It works great. If I have one complaint is that since it is magnetic, it spins forever since there is no friction to slow it down. At least this way you know you are getting the best possible balace.
