After fitting the AR-767's yesterday without having them balanced (tire dealer's a grade A wanker). Anyway I drove to work today without having them balanced. I could tell, wasn't too bad. They were balanced this afternoon for a total of $41 for 5 wheels. (NTB wanted $14 a wheel). When I picked up the TJ this evening it was so smoooooth, I just wanted to floor it. They did say they had to fit 4oz weights to each wheel and nearly 8oz for the spare. Anybody have similar weights?

my 33" bfg mt's were anywhere from 4.5 oz to 13 oz on the spare! Shocked in contrast..my new 35 gy mt/r's are much better on weights. 6 oz is the highest - and that's the spare Smile smooth as butter on the road too - all the way through 85 mph. after that the pucker factor is through the roof!

Hehehe....I average about 10-12oz each on my Trxus MTs. That's something I'll live with for the pure bulk these things have. Interco isn't known for easily balanced, smooth riding tires...but their tires sure do take a beating.

I went for a blast along the PA Turnpike tp Philadelphia on Friday, it was bloody marvelous. Changing from the BFG MT's to the GY Wrangler AT's made the world of difference to the quality of on-road driving. I had forgotten what it was like to be able to hear the radio above 50 MPH.

Are those MTRs? Wow...that's alot of weight. I wouldn't expect that on a GY or BFG tire...a Swamper, yeah...but not something from one of the major tire manufacturers.

Yeah, MTR's.. the rims could be in better shape. The rims have a few flat spots from rock contact. bling
