    i have thought about doing that but then i realized that the major vibrations kick in about 70mph so i use it as a governor and a static machine wants 12oz per tire

    i don't under stand how they work but here is a cool video

    I have been using BBs for about a year. I have TrXus MTs. Using BBs, beads, or whatever will work. I get vibrations between about 50-55 mphs. I like it because I used to always rip the wheel weights of my rims and end out of balance.

    Heavy (40g) airsoft pellets work great too. Used them in an HMMWV wheel/runflat/tire combo in country. No vibes after that.
