I haven't used them in any of my 4 wheeled vehicles, but I have had VERY good results using them with my motorcycle. Had that sucker up to 120mph and no imbalance issues.

If they were cheaper I'd try them on the truck, but ar $3/oz and 3-4oz needed PER TIRE.... not planning to any time soon.

I run the dynabeads in the 33's on my jeep and i threw in some air soft pellets in the tires on the dually. I have had good luck with both of them so far.

I have run dynabeads in both my truck and my wife's truckfor the last 15k or so. Both have 34"-35" tires on them, requiring about 8 oz. per tire. Love the beads; well worth the money IMHO.
