Find a different shop - one that sells truck tires.

Most Discount Tire stores will be able to do it.

My guess is that the store you wnet to is just lazy and doesn't want to mess with them

Discount can do it. Depending on the tire, you'll just have to live with a certain amount of unbalance.

My 36 TSL Radials balanced nice. My 36 SX won't balance for shit.

I just had a local hole in the wall shop balance my new Swamper TSL's. Mount and balance for only $10 (!), took a sheitload of weight, but the ride great.(well...for Swampers <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> )and no waiting. The Discount Tire by me takes forever <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0"> to do anything. But they DO offer sipping for ten dolla a tire...

You also have to deal with the fact that bias ply tires flat spot. Could be this instead of balance. Swampers are really bad about it.

So they have enough weight in them to balance 36" swampers? Did you just need 2 for the front or 4? Oh yea what did they run ya?
