I was going to look for something larger for my next set of tires...
golf balls?

Lot of people used to run those, yeah. I would like some stainless ball bearings in the 1/4-3/8 size range.

Where to get, who knows. I have a whole bunch but they are the game balls to our pachinko machine... they have little japanese chracters etched all over them...

I'll look at TSC for something. If not, BBs from Kmart across the street it is.

I need something like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Pyramid-Bicycl..._sbs_indust_11

There'd be 13.5 per ounce, so a bag of 144 is about 10.5 ounces or so, which is a good amount per tire...


I'm sure there must be somewhere cheaper to buy them in larger quantities...

As I was airing 3 of them up last night I thought... Why the hell do I want to balance these tires?

Debead the one.... Get the water out, new valve stem, air it up. DONE!

Bolt the bitches on... A little more trimming and have some fun.

Because you have not hit your limit on how much money your are going to put in the free Bronco.

Don't worry there's still two tires on the ground.
