I agree about the merits of balanced trailer tires. I used bead balancing on the 19.5 inch TV tires and I am very happy. They can install the beads without taking the tire off the rim so it will be much easier to get it done.

The dealer rim balanced my trailer tires but they had to take the tires off to replace the tires for me so that was the easiest way to go. There are some huge weights on two of the tires and on both sides of the tire so it must have been really out of balance. Not good for the axles.

I have them spin balanced mounted on the axle. It balances everything rotating. They use stick on weights. You will notice a great difference. These tires are usually way out.
