    Wheel balancer

    What is everyone using for wheel balancing these days? Thinking about getting my own wheel balancer since I can mount my own tires at the shop but just donít have a way to balance them and shops still want to charge way too much just to balance.

    I use a static balancer like the ones at the track. I have a No-Mar and another, but can't remember what it is.

    How do you like the No-mar? Yeah looking for one of those static ones, can’t swing a hydraulic one as much as I’d like to have one lol

    Yeah but have heard some aren’t very good so was wondering what people have used that won’t be crap and that they trust.

    Do you balance your race tires on that?

    Yep. Just one set so far. So, it may still fall apart down the road.
