Hi all, does anyone on here know if tire balancing beads really do work ?

I have been wondering about this for a few years now and just purchased a set of 40x15.50R20's and am wanting to make sure that i have a balanced ride so any input with knoweledge of this would help.
Thanks in advance.

I've used the poly BB's with descent success.

Is this a daily driver or trail rig?

I've used Airsoft BBs with great success in several vehicles and so have a few of my friends.

Suggest looking into ceramic bb's instead of just the regular plastic ones. They are less likely to absorb moisture over time

I got mine from discount tire. there tiny little balls. they sell them by the ounce I think i bought 8oz bags and they were around 15 bucks a bag if i remember right. seem to work pretty good.

I've had great success with the plastic air soft bbs in my last 2 sets of tires but when I broke down my last set I did notice that they had broken down some
But then again I'm not sure this affects how they work

its worth investing in some sort of ceramic balance beads. aside from their composition, they are very different than the common airsoft BB.

HDOffroadEngineering has a really good price on them right now.

weight is weight. Why does it matter if they break down?

I'm planning on running coolant in my next set.
