I've run beads in lots of tires for the past couple years. Seem to be perfect every time

I run the Centramatics on my 06 with 35" Cooper Discoverer S/T's, and it rides smoother than it did on 32" Wrangler Silent Armor Pro's. They're about $200 for the set of 4.

Keep us updated, ive been debating on using beads in my dually tires. On another note a friend of mine had a shimmy on his F350 at 45ish then again around 70. He had the driveshaft balanced and said all is well now.

I have 33x12.5x18 MT atz's. Got almost 20k on them. They have the tape weights for balancing. I rotate them every 4k mikes cause that's all I put on my truck each year. But my buddy has those beads and loves them...work much better with better results than the weights. I'm gonna use the beads next. Mine need to be rebalanced tho cause at 80mph I'm getting a little shake.
