It's a super swamper, don't expect them to balance out perfect. On my jeep I had a wobble so I put the front tires on the rear, the rears to the front and it helped. The rears must have been balanced better but still not perfect.

Im used to installing lift kits and big tires in trucks. 99% of the complaints that i get are guys who want a perfect balanced tire. Keep in mind the state of the art balancer i use, with phase matching, and road force, will not get under 4-8 ounces per side. So i always throw a bag of beads in the tires. It helps out tremendously. HOWEVER the wider your tires are in the front the more centrifugal drag they impose on the steering system. What you have to do is adjust the toe, toe the front tires IN slightly more than stock. What happens the tires are pulled backwards the wider they are giving the "death wobble" toe them in slightly and then you wont have that issue at higher speeds because the tires will be pulled back to where they are supposed to be.

Tire Balancing Products here is the site for tire balance beads.
