3D servisas finality gear drives: tire balancing

Just curious if or how people are balancing their tires with the finality gear drive system considering how free roll is with it :upside_down_face:

I’ve already got how he does it. Just curious what other folks are doing

Ah fair enough

How does he do it then?

Deflates runs them on the rear at full speed then airs up. That helped some but I think I might have a shit tire. Weird cause I pulled these from my hellcats which were on here before. But those hubs are so much wider

I also eyeball the tire to be as centered on the rim as possible before inflating

I also generally have a lot of tires and tubes, roughly a 15% tire defect rate for a lot of the common tires we use on our skatboars

Put wheel on axel. Spin. When it stops spinning and seesaws a bit, it’ll naturally settle with the heaviest part downwards. Thanks gravity. Apply lead tape opposite that part. Repeat.
But that’s just standard tire balance procedure.

Not possible on finality. There is way too much resistance on the seals an bearings so gravity can’t do shit.

I really didn’t think I had to mention to do it with the tire OFF the gear drive.

It doesn’t matter. Finality has seals in front as well.

Well that’s just stupid. I guess best you can do is balance the tire on a different hub then.

I just looked them up; pretty sure you could design and 3d print a lil something something to put a 22x8 bearing in the middle, if that’s within your capabilities…

Look what I found. Without seals it’s doable.

So maybe the solution is to remove the seals on one axle, do the balancing of the 4 wheels and put seals back.
