How to balance big mud tires

Balancing big mud tires is essential for off-road enthusiasts as they provide extra traction and protection on rough terrain.

Here is a step-by-step guide to balance your big mud tires:

  1. Gather your tools, including jack stands, wheel chocks, wrench set (usually an adjustable socket wrench and torque wrench), and a balance beam or flat surface.
  2. Remove the wheels from the vehicle by lifting them off the ground with jack stands and using a wrench set to loosen the lug nuts.
  3. Check tire pressure and ensure they’re at the recommended level (usually between 20-24 psi for big mud tires).
  4. Balance each tire on the balance beam or flat surface, tightening the lug nuts in a star pattern and using a torque wrench to ensure correct torque specification.
  5. Lower each wheel back onto the jack stands and tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern while checking alignment with the vehicle.
  6. Repeat the process for each wheel and balance them all to ensure they’re centered on the balance beam or flat surface.
  7. Balancing big mud tires should be done every 5,000-7,500 miles or whenever uneven wear is noticed. It’s recommended to use jack stands to lift the vehicle off the ground and prevent it from rolling or shifting during the balancing process.
