I buy used take-offs from my local kart shop. I have had problems in the past with severe front end shake without balancing. I now balance only the front tires with up to an ounce of weight, some tires take more weight, I stop at an ounce, not looking for perfect balance, just something close.
I never balanced tires when doing the sprint track series. However, in road racing it’s very necessary…fronts in particular. Next to mounting tires, balancing was on the “least favorite things to do” list. After getting and learning to use the TurboTire Changer, mounting tires is not longer a big deal. Recently, I began using balancing beads http://www.<b>motorcycle</b>-superstore.com/50004/i/counteract-<b>tire</b>-<b>balancing</b>-<b>beads</b> . (1) ounce in each tire…it’s amazingly simple and works for me! I harvest and reuse what I can when unmounting the tires.
