    I like the bb's better since they would spread out better I think, as for how much I have heard of people throwing in the whole carton of them or 10oz worth.

    I run golf balls because it would have taken a ton of BB's to balance out a couple of my tires. BB's will spread out better than golf balls, though.

    When you drive slow (5 to 10 mph) can you hear the golf balls moving or hitting each other inside the tire?

    Occasionally you can hear them bouncing off of the rims, but thats about it.

    Try running your tires with nothing for balance first. I just mounted a set of 39.5x15x16.5 TSL's on a set of 16.5x9.75 Armstrong R&W 12 Bolt Double Bead Locked Rims with rubber inserts and put nothing in them and they ride great. I had bought enough golf balls to put six in each wheel but I decided to try them with nothing first and they are great. I would love to see some pics with the tires on, sounds like your running about the same set up as me.
