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.

PS - It's great to own a truck!
They said the build is going slow lately and we're looking at mid-November now. But I did get some more pictures which helps make the wait bearable!

Looks great, how does the rear door open?
I wish they had higher resolution pics. Here's one that I found on the internet.
From what I've seen and understand, the latch is basically an offset oval that tightens as it rotates. So you unlock the leveler, and then lift up to rotate the bar that goes across which rotates the oval and loosens the door until it fully disengages.
Then there are cables and support springs (like a garage door) that assist with the weight. It looks like they are currently missing from mine. I also have a pull down screen door going in for nice but buggy weather.
