Balancing 35" with Beadlocks

I've looked through the 6 pages of posts in this section for my answer and have yet to find it.

I have 17" Walker Evans Beadlocks that I will mount 35's on myself. Will normal tire shops be able to balance my wheels for me? Or do I need to find a specialty/large truck shop like you guys with 37's and larger?

Thanks.

A regular tire shop should be able to handle a normal 35 or 37 with no problems. Most have machines that go up to 40-44's.

It took me 6 places, but I finally found a shop that could do a 39.5" thats 16.5" wide. They were a regular tire shop and had to hotwire the hood, but they made it work!

I did it myself on Soft8s (would be easier with bead locks) with Dynabeads.

Buy the weight you need and dump them in. People have gone cheaper and used airsoft beads as well. Just be sure they will hold together and not corrode inside the tire.
