I received a defective unit so I'm contacting the manufacturer for a return or replacement. It looked like it had been used and thread was rusting on the threads and some rust drips around it. The threads also didn't fully seal and had some air leaks.

Overall changing the tire was not that difficult, other than the bead not seating. I'm a little uncertain if my balancer worked correctly, seemed to be a bit crooked, but I did my best to make it level.

Might get this balancer for next time if my wheels are off balance: Aerostich Cantilever Wheel Balancer

Wheels were perfectly balanced! Had a great TD yesterday at Buttonwillow.
