    Has anyone ever tried balancing their 18” Tundra wheels and tires with a portable bubble balancer and stick on weights? Just wondering if it’s worth picking one up so I can balance my own wheels. Thanks for any input.

    Hey, if a belly dancer wants to balance my wheels, that’ll work too. Haha.

    Funny, I tried one of these things a year or so ago.

    It was listed on CL by the end of the day.

    I don't miss it. It just took too long for the wobbleing to stop.

    I do change my own tires, but run them down to the tire dealership to get balanced. No hassle about wrong tires because they are loose in the bed of the truck.

    They work in big tires. Just have to get the correct weight you need per tire size.
