ďnodding in agreementĒ Gotta go where others canít! Plan on doing whatever I need to to these fenders, then buying new ones and getting them professionally done somewhere once I know exactly what they need to clear.

Biggest thing you have to watch with beads is most places donít use nearly enough. A set of duals takes more per tire to balance. Ex: semi steers take 10oz but drives take 12oz each.
Also many of them donít factor in the weight of different tires/rims. My steers they only did 6oz because thatís all they normally need for a tire of that diameter. They didnít factor in the heavy ass 19.5ís Iím running

My next time around I may invest in a set of centermatics.

Good to know. So how do you calculate how many you need for a certain wheel/tire set up? Does it go strictly by weight?

Local shop goes by size. I believe weight is really the important factor.

Seems when it comes to the stuff, too much is better than not enough.
