    I am running 285/75/R16 ProComp Xtreme MT on my Tacoma and I am having one helluva time getting them to balance right. Has anyone else ran into this problem? Does anyone use dyna beads? Thanks.

    No experience with dynabeads - get a road force balance and you should be fine. If they won't balance, points to another issue..

    They are brand new tires. And I understand they are an aggresive tire but my steering wheel shouldn't shake between 55 and 65.

    There are a couple of tricks you can try. 1st, Try turning the tires 180 degrees on the wheel, to see if the tire will use less weight to get it balanced. 2nd, try just a static balance, its worked for me a couple times. Using Dynabeads, Equal etc... I have used these methods multiple times and ended up having to take them out after trying them. Good products but, I never have had much luck with them. Don't bother roadforcing them, that tire is too aggressive for a roadforce balance machine to get a good reading on it. You could also try just rotating them and see if it changes the vibration, so you can narrow down which tires are the problem. Good luck
