35x12.50x16 super swamper

Has anyone else had any problem with the LTB swampers being out of round? I just bought 6 for my f 350 duelly and 2 was out of round and a third was almost impossible to balance.

LTB's are bias tires, its expected that they wont balance correctly. I ran boggers on my toyota and they were so far out of round it was crazy...they worked well off road tho so it was worth it

sitting overnight puts flat spots in them, and they wobble at around 55-65mph no matter how much they were driven on.
