I am about to change from Quick time pro's to Slicks. Should I have them balanced when I have them mounted? What's every one else doing?

Mickey Thompson recommends their bias ply slicks be bubble balanced.

If they are not screwed, not much need because they will spin inside the wheel.

I tried to ride with not balancing the slicks and had a terrible vibration. I always balance mine now.

They are always gonna be different. I just mounted and bubble balanced some ET Streets with tubes. Remember if you are going to screw you tires to the rims do that before balancing. Always done that never had a problem with vibration all though this past time one rim didnt need any weight at all and the other needed 2 1/2 ounces.

Why would you balance slicks? If you have no bead-lock/screws the tire WILL move with low air pressure.

no balance on either slicks, drag radials or ET Streets and I just made an 80 mile trip in the car, smooth as silk on the interstate with full drag suspension and slammed to the ground.
