Kinda funny you ask. They're still sitting in my shop unmounted. The studs on my hubs seemed pretty stubborn when I removed the nuts and I'd like to "chase" them a bit before reinstalling the wheel to keep the nuts from galling...that or maybe some light
lube on the threads.
A theory I have on the weights is, that it would tend to take MORE on the smaller wheel vs a larger wheel since they're more inward towards the center than say on a 16" wheel.
Otherwise, I'm 100% confident these tires will run fine.
Carol...what did you think about the "ribs" on our Maxxis? I have a mixed feeling...yeah...they're stronger on the diameter, but are we sacrificing a bit of "grip" because the water doesnt the have the grooves going from the center outwards? In other words, the outer ribs COULD possibly act as "dams" in the center??

Do not believe the small tires on my old Scamp
ever required that amount, although they did have a couple of small weights on them. I have no doubt though that some of the tire wear issues we read about here are the result of unbalanced tires though. Many tire shops will not normally balance trailer tires unless asked to do so.
How did it tow home? Notice any difference?
