that sounds about right for the tires. I have KM2s in the same size. Some of mine went up to 14oz. for stick-on's. Make sure there is enough clearance for the calipers. Thats one problem i had when i balanced them the first time.

Its not my first time.

It is only my first time with a brand new machine.

And the asshole who told me those lies this morning should have been more stern in telling me to use clips and sticks.

Why not use pound on weights and sticky?

I told ya twice!! What more do you want!!

What kinda wheels are you trying to put them on? I did "WHY YJ" 35-12.5R15 KM2's about 2 months ago w/ black steels and they didn't take more than 5oz or so!
