    Anyone using them? i will be ordering some on the first. they are simple, you can do it yourself and it seems cost effective....

    im just looking for any input. the 19.5's are a lil bit of a pain to balance. a few OTR tire stores have tried to sell them to me, but want anywhere from 125 to 250 to do all 4 tires. i read on the website it can be done in a driveway without removing the tire from the truck. this is a huge bonus for me as i live in an appartment right now...

    said to be better on the tires and rims than equal and more effective. purchasing the dyna beads means i wont have to purchase centrimatics either...

    All I can tell you is that we use them at work on all our trucks.
    I have them in all the tires on my tractor and they seem to work well.
    I only have a small amount of vibration from my truck and my tires get really messed up when I hit the construction sites.

    I have them in BFG T/A KO 315/75R17(35s). Works pretty good. This is for DD, highway and OR. I can run them up to 80 MPH, so far. Another thing thats neat is you won't need to bother with lead weights getting knocked-off on trails. Before, I had collected weights from the JY, took pictures of the wheels so I could replace weights if they were lost. I like things simple and smart, Dyna Beads, Staun deflators and CO2.:D

    how do they work???

    i just tried to balance my tires and since they were all around 16 ounces off on both sides i decided to just leave them unbalanced, i don't have any vibs or anything... but i'd like my tires to be balanced

    i think i might have to get some though so i can get some more life out of my tires

    I run them in my beadlocked 37's on the street with no problems up to 70mph. I am seriously considering them for my DD with 32's.

    I have them in 35 12.5 BFG AT KO's. They work fine - no problems and the ride is smooth.

    Air soft pellets work the same BTW. That is what I run and have put in a few customers tires.

    19.5 beads break easily with a stiff boot. The airsoft are cheap too.

    There is a chart I found on here somewhere. I have 35/15.5/15 TSL/SX's and run 14oz in each tire.

    EDIT: Found chart http://www.innovativebalancing.com/BigTirechart.htm
