Hey everybody,
My Dad and I bought a Harbor Freight Tire Changer, and we are now needing a tire balancer. I've heard good things about the Marc Parnes unit, and I've seen a No-Mar balancer in person. As Dad rides a BMW, R1200GS, we are also looking at www.beemerbalancers.com. My question(s) is/are....has anyone tried the beemerbalancer?...what adapters are needed to balance an FJR tire?...anyone have any info/experience with the No-Mar balancer?....I've heard nothing but good about the Marc Parnes, but I would still like some input.

Thanks,

Brian

Marc Parnes

A friend had one of these and it seemed like a quality unit. The guy was great with tires. He checked the empty rim first to find the light/heavy spot, maked it and then put the tire on placing the heavy/light spot in the correct position. It was amazing how many times no balance weights were needed (obviously not Avons!). Ian, Iowa
