PostSubject: Car scales?   April 26th 2010, 5:34 pm

Is there a scale anywhere in town where I could weigh my car? I'm used to having a CO-OP or grain elevator around where I could just drive my car on their scale and check my weight. I can't say I've ever seen one around here.

In Missoula and Polson the garbage dumps have weigh scales. They seem accurate, and are designed for cars and pickups bearing household trash. Billings might have the same thing.

I have wanted to do this for years, but I thought you had to pay for it. I am going to have to get mine weighed as it should weigh a few hundred less than stock, I hope.

you never really know until you get it weighed, not to mention once you weigh it, and you run it, you can figure how much power you make to the tires give or take alittle... king
