Balancing bead question

Ok guys i finally pulled the trigger on some 40x16 Super Swamper LTBs so i will stop looking like "bigfoot on training wheels" as a user who will remain unnamed put it. Unfortunately they are on back order until like mid feb so i have some time to still look goofy.

But anyway, im thinking of putting some balancing bead in these in hopes they will make them last longer but how many oz should i put in each tire?

Yeah, but they're pretty loud of pavement, not sure if they're louder than your current setup though
