sandbags

I use the sticky weights...
because I wheel often on moderate trails...
and any other wheel weight is going to get knocked off.

I paint the sticky weights black,
because they're super ugly and muh wheels are black

I have never lost one of those... evar

I don't use balance beads... nor am I a fan

I used 10oz of airsoft pellets in my 37x12.5 MTR's mounted on Trail Ready HD 17" beadlocks on my rock crawler. Runs down the freeway at 80mph and is smooth as glass now. I have heard some say that the airsoft pellets will wear down and need to be replaced. No worries for me as I wanted to try these and see how it works out. So far so good...

If you search on pirate4x4.com, ttora.com, google or any of the jeepers forums you'll find a bunch of information on non-conventional balancing ideas. I don't really have a write-up perse, but here is a link to my build thread on another site that contains some information on the airsoft pellets.

I used the tire charts for Dynabeads as a starting point. (see below) I ran Dynabeads many years ago and hated them, so wanted to try something else this time.

I had EQUAL tire balancing in my Jeep (35 X 12.50's). It worked great and never had a problem with it - even on the highway at 70mph.

The trick...is putting enough in each tire to work properly.

You CAN NOT use EQUAL with your factory TPMS (2nd gen trucks).

When you get EQUAL installed, they will put new valve stems in that have a little 'screen' to prevent the grains from coming out. We removed those (stems w/ screens) because our auto deflators wouldn't work. And actually, you never really lose any when airing up or down...... we always had a spare bag of EQUAL just in case. But...never had to use it.

I have been using beads in my wheels since I have had them. They are smoother than my previous sets of wheels and tires.
