Yes, I put air holes in all of my wheels. I found that they like to bounce without the holes.

Ya your truck is heavy enough. No sense adding extra. lol!

What Scott said on the holes. Air filled tires like to bounce and wheel hop. I drill holes in all my wheels or put a couple air holes in the tires themselves.

Hmmm wonder how much my turd weighs? I figured yours would be around 8. I guess I will have to put the old girl on the scale.
