My farm truck has been rolling on used tires for quite a while now.. But, it usually eats tires on the front (got to love the twin I beam Fords.. But that's another story.. new parts this week and alignment next week should remedy that).. Just put my first used set on my 05 Chevy, but since I drive the company's vehicle now and not my own, I don't worry so much about having tire troubles (at one time, I was driving out of town quite a bit).. Also use a few used tires on wagons and implements..
OH.. and I just bought a tire machine about 3 months ago.. Before that, we used the slide-hammer bead breaker and spoons.. That tire machine makes changing tires a lot better than it ever was.. I almost don't mind doing it these days.
As for balancing, the local tire shop will balance them very reasonably, just as long as I take em to him off the vehicle.. Cheap enough that it's not hardly worth buying my own balancer and weights, but I have looked into it.. Brad

My balancer was $12.00 at auction, and the weights come off of other wheel/tire combo's I tear down. I just slide the weight around, till the bubble zeros. Easy as pie, and I don't have to go nowhere to get it done!

Brad, I don't know how many miles your Ford has on it, but are the bushings in the axles, (Where they bolt to the frame) in good shape? and also the bushings in the radius arms? I have owned several Fords with twin I-Beams and only had a problem with one, and after replacing about two tires on one side I found it had a bent axle. Just some thoughts.
