Sorry didnt see the post

Always balance them, if not you may get a shake towards the finish line. A motorcycle shop can do this fairly easy and cheap.

No tubes for me, never have ran them never had issues with losing air, 32lbs every race morning and I am good to go

We have never run tubes in the fronts and for the sake of your hands and teeth, balance them.
