Static balance all the way. Toast88, what kinda balancer did you use? Did you do it on static setting, or alloy?

Imboxtin, just go to any basic shop, and they should do it for like 15 bucks if that.

sure - you gotta balance the wheels. on my first set of rims (almost no lip) we did the tape on weights on the inside lip. on my current set (sportmax 002's) i have the clamp on weights on the inside lip. either way you never see 'em. but you gotta balance... if you wanna have a smooth ride and save your tires.
