    Just finished balancing my AT wheels but instead of using the gadget in the video above I just used the front trucks, added about 10 grams to each wheel then swapped them to the back wheels and repeated, before balancing when i lifted up the board and pulled the trigger fully it read 22mph after balancing now getting 25mph and no wobble :rolleyes::thumbsup::ok_hand:

    10g is massive, I balance car wheels and most of the time 10 - 20g is enough to get it right for the smaller 14" wheels and 35 - 40 or so on 17" depends on the tyre and brand though some tyre brands are **** to balance

    That's what I thought. Two of the wheels needed 10g opposite the valves and the other two needed 5g with the valve ,which I can't work out?.?.?:dizzy:

    Im just looking at the weights on ebay. Did you use the steel weights or the lead weights? It looks like you can only get black weights in steel. Im a bit concerned that steel weights might rust over time?

    steel weights will be fine, if they rust before your tyres wear out you would riding a lot on a beach

    Cheers, ill just order some on fleabay. The hobby shop wanted $9 per strip which was a normal strip cut in half. I can get 8 full strips for that on fleabay, not that i need 8 strips but i guess i can use the left overs on the neighbours cat.

    Position your front foot on the board and place the other foot on the ground just in front of that foot. Then, use your foot to push on the concrete and move your board and body forward. Keep a low center of gravity as you push. Bend your knees and balance your body weight over the foot that is on the skateboard.
