Default Re: wheel out of balance


There is several methods to balance front wood wheels. Jack up your front wheel spin it and mark the light area when the wheel stops. Spin it enough times that you are sure that you have the light area. It will be a little different each time. One method used a lot around here is to take solder (sp?) and wrap it around the spoke where the light spot is. Keep spinning the wheel until you are satisfied that it is in balance. It should stop in 360 degrees when you are finished. Another application is one which I use. I go to a Tire shop and ask for the weights that are used to balance Mag wheels. These come in self sticking sticks about 10 inches long. Use a side cutter to cut as much of the weight as you think you need and again keep spinning the wheel and placing more or less weights until you are satisfied that it is balanced and will stop in 360 degrees.
