I just had my GDY MTR's 305's installed and the the tire shop put in some kind of glass silicone beads to balance them. I had the FJ wagon wheel disease for about 10 mins and now its just like stock. Super Smooth. They use these in all the big truck tires now from what the tire shop said. They started using them in LT tires just to try them and so far its working great. They will even adjust after a short time if you have rocks stuck in the tread or mud on the inside of the wheels which would throw out the balance on a normal weighted balance job.

Dynabeads is a popular brand of these. How is your balance of the wheels below 30 mph???

OKay, i thought about these for my swampers. I have heard many mixed results. Mostly that they don't work very well at lower speeds but rather are designed for highway speeds. Others say they work at all speeds.
