I have used them and I will say they are different.
At Low speeds they don't do anything. About 30 mph they start to make a difference and at 55 they are working good.

Now with all that being said you will still feel some vibrations depending on road and turns and how out of balance the tires are, Especially at first. As the tire gets wore in they better. Still way better than losing wheel weights or tires spinning on the rims due to low pressure and lots of traction.

Now where would I use them: On a rig that I run both on road and off road with tires that are 33 to 37" tall. I would also recommend adding more than the recommended dyna bead weight by about 1/4 to 1/3 more.

With tires over 37" tall I would not use the Dyna beads. I would use a mix of Airsoft beads and golf balls. The Airsoft beads will work on tires less than 37" tall but they are about 100x larger than the dyna beads.

Thanks Dion,

I'm going to give them a shot. I will post back up with results on how well they balance my new shoes.

What size/brand tires are you going to? I'm following as once I get the CJ ready I have 35 MTR going on some steelies and was debating the same route of dynabeads or trying to balance. Will still see a mix of on and off road use.

I think you will like them but they are different than having a well balanced tire and wheel combo.

Got em in the Rover with 39.5" tires. They seem to work ok for steady speeds but can sometimes allow some wobble when transitioning speeds, like when slowing down to a stop. Other than that no problems.

I have them and they work OK in my truck, both the previous 35 claws and the current 37s. Only thing was with the 35 claws, i would get a vibrations at 60+ sometimes. It could have been something else and likely was. The 37s seemed to behave at those speeds, but i haven't drove it on the road much with them.
