Anyone every use wheel balance beads?

I noticed that there is a very small bit of a vibration with these new BFG's. I also noticed that they needed to use 2 larger balance weights on one rim! I know I am being a bit of a perfectionist but that is my nature. I found these while looking around for a better solution. Has anyone tried these?

i put steel shot in my 33x12.5 Trxus MT's with a little shot of anti-freeze.

it seemed to help. i know lots of semi's run this stuff in the wheels. it seems to work.

I've put BB's in 3 sets of tires on my TJ with great results. The ride at speed is better than it should be with 35 inch BFG mt's and beat up steel beadlocks. The tires never need to be balanced and there is no chance of knocking off a weight. I don't know why it is not more common.

Seems like anything in the tires might mess up the TPMS sensors.

I know of a few guys that run the stick on wheel weights on their off road vehicles. One of them wheels at Rausch Creek quite often and said he hasnt had any proplems with them falling off. They are on his AEV Pintler Beadlocks.

I run the ceramic dyna-beads in my 35 SSRs on my YJ. They work great.

Looks like for 245/75 they suggest 5 ounces.
