Dumb question about bicep/tricep balance

My usual weight for bicep curls is around 70lbs for 3x10, and for skullcrushers is 60lbs for 3x10. Since triceps are over 2/3rds of the mass in my arms, does this mean I have an imbalance (as in biceps are more developed then tri's)? Or do these two exercises often yield arbitrary weights to each...
