yes they will work, but tire shops hate them but if your set on that method go to Walmart and buy a bunch of air soft ammo it is the same thing basically. There are many ways to balance oversize tires these days Centramatic is the way I like best, it is more expensive but is also a one time fix.

I think the 17" would work but you might call and ask about that.

I have been using them on my tires for this truck for the last three years. No complaints what so ever. My Hankooks wear evenly and I rarely rotated.

I have the balancing beads in my jeep. I also have the beads in the front of the dually and air soft pellets in the rears. Have air soft pellets in my dodge dart. I also have air soft pellets in the car trailer and the 5th wheel. They work for me.

How did you know how many ounces to add for weight?

I have had Dynabeads in my 19.5's for the past four years now. Personally I wouldn't go back to hanging weights on larger tires.
