They did not work well for me in my 35" mtr's. I used the ones that Belle tire use.

I've been using Equal for about 3-4 years now and have good luck in a couple sets of tires. They have a good chart for weights of balance material to use in 4x4 tires.

I tried this once with some used tires I had. Three balanced good but one would not. I used 21 oz split evenly for 33 in tires.

I put 8 ounces in each 33" BFG MT and they were perfectly balanced, never had a wobble. My 35" Truxus spare is balanced with them now too, no issues so far.

If you do it, buy the heavier ones, that way you need need a million per tire.
