Getting new tire put on this next week. I'm gonna try the soft airpistol beads like i saw in another thread. You get 5000 of them in a box for $8 at Walmart. I'll let you know what happens.

They work great for me. Just go a little heavy on the amount. More won't hurt and it's damn hard to add more if you're to low the first time around. On my 205/70/16 I used 4 Oz. and she's smooth as glass at all speeds up to 120 (too skeert to go faster) affraid .

VTXChamp was saying that he was going to use Airsof pellets to balance his new darkside. The Airsof pellets are way cheaper than the Dyna's, about 3 Lbs for $9 at Wally World (but don't use the cheap beads, only the Airsoft brand), but you can't put them down the valve stem.They have to be loaded before the bead is set. They also won't block the valve as the Dyna's sometimes will I run Airsoft in my SUV offroad tires and have found that too much won't hurt but too little is a pain to fix.

You get a small plastic bottle with a clear plastic hose with the Dyna-Beads kit. Has 2 2oz and 1 3oz Baggies of beads. Pour them in valve stem and if they jam,just tap on stem and they'll flow. As long as you got the right air pressure in they'll keep the wheel in balance automatically.(meaning if you don't have enough air the tire will start to cup causing a bumpy ride)
