so surfin the webs...

saw this:

what was interesting was the conversation around the use of airsoft beads to balance large tires... since my 2007 doesnt have TPMS now worries to damage that sensor.

so... those in the know.. and those to pretend to be in the know... beads for wheel balancing.. yah / nah ?

WOW, I always request internal weights when balancing because I knock the outer ones off. This wheel looks pretty out of true. I bet his teeth shook out of his head before he got them balanced.

No direct experience but I've heard good things about ceramic beads.

I used beads with my 2006 Mega Cab and they worked well on the 35s I had. You certainly will not have the issue of throwing weights.
