    Preventing issues with balance beads maybe?

    Do both of course. Balance that wheel… the CTIS assembly, nuts, base plate and hoses equal about 2lb 1 oz. offset that weight on the opposite side with weights, ( I used 8 and 10 ounce lead fishing weights, see pictures, above two different styles) THIS BALANCES THE WHEEL.
