So I've been looking for options for dealing with an unbalanced tire. I've been looking at new tires but was hoping I could hold off until late summer early fall.

Has anyone used these? http://www.innovativebalancing.com/

Any feedback would me much appreciated!

It might be cheaper to do it that way.

I'm running the air soft BBs
use the seamless High impact blacks @ 0.27grams
Walmart in Exeter has them $16.00 for 5000 BBs.
Use the dynabeads chart and add them right into the tire
they are bigger so you wiil need to break the bead on the tire.
Dave p is running the balance powder in his.

They work well, you may get a wobble from a slow start but once rolling they will balance out.

These are usally used on tires too large for a balancer
your tire may have defects causing the extreme wobble.

I am using a product called Counteract. They are a balancing bead. They work to a certain degree. If you have a bent wheel or a bad tire then either the beads or powder won't work for you. I work with this stuff all the time but on a much bigger scale. Hope everything works out for you.

Shit! Thanks for the help! I was hoping that I could put off buying new tires. Looks like I'm gonna have to man up and visit town fair tire this week. Would it be easier to use the BBs or powder rather then weights? It seems like over the life of tires you usually have to balance them 2+ times at least. Especially with wheeling trips in the mix.
