Liquid tire balancing

Local tire shop is requesting I liquid balance my nitto mud grapplers. Any feedback on this? I am not familiar with it

I haven't heard of "Liquid balancing" either. I have heard of balancing beads. Are they saying they cant get them balanced with lead weights?

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

Same idea as running a Fluiddamper.

A couple guys I work with have them in their trucks and like them. I think it's a good idea. Always balanced. Especially if you have nice aftermarket show wheels and you don't want weights showing. I requested it when I bought my 22"s with 34" Terra grapplers but said they siding offer it. Oh well.

Dyna beads are what I put in my tires and have read nothing but good things about them.

They are going to take a look at the tires once mounted to see if the weights are reasonable. They are the best tire shop around, and now offer this liquid balancing. My fear is what to do if I get a nail etc. The fluid is similar in concept to the beads, so I am certain it will work. I know tractor trailers use this stuff quite often. Just looking for general feedback.

I've used beads and liqued with good results. The thing you have to watch out for is as you get wear on the tires, areas of the tire will not be perfectly round. Some amount of bounce will occur and momentarily dislodge the beads or liquid. Best case is only a minor vibration occurs until the beads or liquid re-balance. As more tire wear occurs you may end up with the infamous ford wobble. I've found that by taking the truck to a big truck, motor home, service truck dealer and having the tires cut to tru them solves my problem. Amazing small amount of rubber is trimmed off and the ride is great afterwards, Went from 20-25 K on front tires to current tires have 68K and just starting to feel some vibration. Plan to replace front tires this week.
