Tire Balancing

Anyone knows of a good tire balancing shop in the North Dade / South Broward area for my 35x12.5 KM2s mounted on soft 8s?

Iím having trouble having them balanced. First time they were mounted and balanced, I got a vibration from 45 to 55 mph, went back to the shop and they told me it was the best they could do with their equipment. Then had them balanced at 4Wheelparts and got a vibration from 50 to 60. Then tried the dynabeads and sometimes thereís no vibration, but other times is worse than with regular weights.

I donít know if thereís something wrong with my wheels, but before getting new wheels, which I donít the have money for, I like to try regular balancing again. Thanks.

I would suspect an issue with the tires before the wheels. Some wheels can be a beoch to balance. Particulalry large MT's. What kind of tires are they?

35x12.5 R17 KM2s. I'm not sure about blaming the tires though. I took them to the shop that successfully balanced my 33" boggers in the past.
