Balancing

I'm running a new set of 35" MTR/Kevlar on 15x8 steelies. Used 10 ounces of Airsoft to balance them (same ones I had in my 35" KM2s). They were fine until I rotated the tires and I got a wobble at 40 mph. Not full on death wobble but definitely on the way there. There is no play in the front end with steering or track bar. Would adding some more BBs in the tires cause any problems to see if it fixes the issue?

I tried the airsoft balancing in my 35" MT/R K's,I went back to normal weights a few days later and have never had a wobble issue since.

Air soft bb's aren't dense enough to make great balancing media. Try about 10oz of steel bb's. That's what I run.
