There has been a bit of a learning curve with commercial tires.
Discount Tire told me over the phone that they can mount and balance commercial tires so I dropped them off yesterday. They called me up to tell me that they gouged a rim while mounting and that they can only balance them with beads since commercial tires are too heavy for their machine. I think they would have paid more for the damage, but they'll eventually get scratched anyway so I figured I'd be realistic and ask for a refund on just the mounting fee.

With the internal TPMS sensors beads aren't an option so I found another shop for balancing and I went today.
They could only static balance them with stick on weights and said that they have a lot of lateral runout. They said that trailer rims tend to be that way. I'm not sure how much is acceptable, so hopefully it won't be a problem. I feel sick about it. 🤮
Most, but not all, of the weights are placed by the valve stems opposite of the TPMS sensors.
