Balancing 35S...weights or beads/bags?

Postby svtkev » December 18th, 2014, 9:29 am

putting 35s MT/Rs on my jeep and was wondering what is the preferred method for the best balance on a tire this size , weights or beads/bags?
My 33s had weights and had a good balance but the Duratracs aren't as aggressive as MT/Rs either

i put a half pound of ceramic beads in my wifes 35's, now every time we take off from a stop we get "dynamic" balanced tires, im never looking back, i will never "pay" to have lead stuck on my wheels again.... its that good.

A lot depends on size of tire and radial/bias ply. 10oz of beads in my boggers didn't do much for them!! :)
