Question Does anyone know?

About the beads that you can get put in your tires so you no longer have to use weights to balance them?? I got them in my tires and I need to know if that was a good or bad idea??

In my experience they collect moisture and dirt over time and can actually serverly effect the balance. Obviously I balance thousands of tires a year and the old static balance, done properly, is hard to beat.

Dynamic would imply changing and the lead weights used in balancing the tire do not move around.
