How did you go about getting all the wheels off and re-balanced ?
Did you remove one at a time yourself, and either get them balanced individually by a tire place or have equipment to balance them yourself ?
Or did you have equipment to jack your entire 5th to take all wheels off at the same time and get them all balanced together ?

Found the source of the slow leak in the back left tire. Puncture in the tread. Dismounted the tire, took it in for repair. The tech says they TRIED to repair it, but the rubber on the inside of the cheap brand tire was so thin they couldn't buff it enough to attach the rubber seal.

Ended up with a new Carlisle. I'll replace the rest next year, make this one the spare.

I can't speak for OC but my plan is to use my Anderson Rapid Jack to get one tire off the ground, take that tire off and replace it with the spare then use the Rapid Jack to get the other tire on the same side off the ground and take it off and take them both to have the valve stems replaced and balanced, reverse the process to put them back on and then do the same thing to the other side.

I'm sure OC has a more convienent way but I'm going to work with what I have.

I jacked the 5er up and took all 5 to Gmax at one time. I have more than enough jack stands to do the job.

That's what I would do if I didn't have the equipment to take all 4 off at the same time.

Naw, the Cabarrus sheriff's office already has the wrecker on standby to haul your Dodge to the local ditch fill facility. They should be here around 4pm tomorrow.

That's how I did my 4 when I bought new tires 2 years ago. Only I used a floor jack vs. the Anderson.
