    The balance beads you pour in the tire. They negate need for wheel weights. At low speeds you'd have some minor vibes, but if you use the correct amount once moving they spread out in the tire and naturally balance it using the power of physics. Or maybe bro-science, I forget which.

    Seth nailed it, balance beads. Little glass beads that use centrifugal force to self balance the tire. Theyre great for meaty tires that are tough to balance otherwise. Also good for off road because they rebalance the tire if a chunk comes out of it. I want them because the higher load range tires can be tough to balance at times and the balance seems to change over time also.

    They certainly don’t give them away, but if you get them in when the tires are new, that could be a few years of well balanced tires.

    Plastic Airsoft BB's are an alternative to balance beads. Balance beads really shouldn't be used for smaller than a 37 though, they do take a minute to balance the tire after sitting

    Yes, I didn't have any issues. Was $100 for 285/70/17's to be mounted and balanced. Hes a huge car guy and makes sure things are right and wheels dont get scratched

    Real deal, spins the tire round and round and tells you where to put the weights
