How do you balance a BMT on the rim. :coffee1: besides the beads?

My first one didn't need balancing according to the local dealer. BTW they wouldn't install it but they would take $21.50 from me to tell me that it didn't need balancing. It was worth it though to see the look on the tech's face when he brought out this unbefore seen Frankenstein'in creation of car and bike, scratch his head and say "It tested out to 0's".

After that I didn't bother to balance the 2nd one and it runs smoother than the first.

I balance no rear tires anymore. Triple digits no wobble. A little uneven tread wear but less than 1/32. Which balancing may or may not correct.

I use a static balance like Murgie showed. Works fine for CT or MT tires.
