22.5" Alcoas on my F450

I like the look but the ride is rough...may be the tires or balancing issue....has anyone tried balancing beads that work on the inside of these tires?or other ways of smoothing out the ride. Thanks /xx268/johnlaurel/089.jpg[/IMG]

the stuff im talking about is a one time use. it comes in bag. you put one two, three how every many bags you need for that size tire, soon as your up to highway speed the bags brake apart and the stuff starts to do its job. i have heard of the bbs but i have not used them personally. i do use the equal in my jeep with 37s. and now lead on the rims and its rides prty good

Go to your local truck tire shop and get the 10 ounce bags and throw them in, equal is powder and counteract is little glass beads. they work well, I am running equal in my tires now.
