Well I decided to stick with my chrome 32's, but I also wanted to road force balance them before putting them back on for the summer. After doing so I noticed a significant improvement in my ride quality, especially on the highway. I would def. suggest to anyone with an oversized wheel to get them balanced with the hunter gsp9700. I uses this site to look for one in my area http://www.gsp9700.com/index.cfm

My dealer in downtown Chicago uses it. I specifically ask for them to perform the road balance on the GSP9700. They charge about $30 per wheel.

I'm not sure what the dealers use if they dont have the GSP9700. Prob the standard balancing machine?
