36 Swampers and Air Soft

Anyone running 36 12.50 Swamper TSL sx bias ply's with air soft pellets? If so how much weight are you running? Been doing a bunch of reading and thinking about going this route to try to get a better balancer and get the large amount of weights off the rims. I have searched around and come up with a large range that people are recommending. The dynobead chart says 8oz. I have also seen people to 10-12 per tire on 36's.

So I guess the questions are anyone running these tires and what weight were you successful at?

Is to much a bad thing? Can I go straight to 12 oz per tire to make sure I dont do it again?

I run 36" GY Wrangler MT (16.5" humvee tires and I am running@ 9oz of STEEL BB's in mine. Why steel BB's? denser, don't/can't clump up when you get moisture in your tire from the air compressor at the gas station and when I get a flat I unseat the bead and put a magnet in and pull them all out at once until the plug/patch dries and then put them back in.

IIRC basically a quater of a cup of steel BB's and you will be fine.

FWIW I have done this for years.
Here's a write up I did:

If you love wealth more than liberty,the tranquility of servitude more than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains sit lightly on your shoulders and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
