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.

tire balancing beads?

I'm going to be mounting a set of wheels 16x10's with 305 70 16 bfg at ko's and was debating on balancing beads. They are surprisingly expensive. Anyone running these? Or should I just go with sticky weights?

Beads, sand, water, and any other alternative method for balancing tires are usually reserved for big a$$ tires that won't fit on the balancing machine. Seems like those old bubble balancers were phased out while they were still useful.

I'm sure someone will chime in otherwise, but for a set of 33s, I'd do some sticky weights. Actually, because I am more concerned about proper balance than looks, I liked the clip-on weights that went on both lips.

i would'nt recommend them for 33's but if they are having trouble balancing them you probably will end up with about 100 bucks worth of dynabeads are they knobby MTs or just a AT or Street tire?
