I don't quite understand how this works, but i've heard a few people say it really worked well in their ride...

this chart shows how many ounces of BB's (like the ones you shoot in your red rider BB gun) to put inside your "oversized" tires to balance them.

Good luck...anybody have any success with this?

I've never done it before, but the logic is that when they are moving the same radial velocity as the tire, they will naturally settle into the opposite side of the tire that the vibrations are coming from, canceling them out.

See...that doesn't make sense to me, in my mind i think they would be attracted to the heavy spot on the tire because the heavy spot will be pushing outwards anyways...so why wouldn't the extra weight just go to the heavy spot...

I've heard of people doing it with success. However, the latest trend I saw was to use airsoft pellets (takes a little more), that way you don't get the shot-peen affect to the inside of your tires/rims.
