tire balancing

What are everyone's thoughts on balancing with bbs and how much should go in a 32?

I'll be doing just that in the next week or two. From what I've found, I believe it's 6 ounces per tire. I also read to get the heavier .20 bbs, and not the .12. I wheel with a few guys that have done this, and they are very happy with the results.

Don't make the mistake one guy did by getting the biodegradable ones though. He said he was left with a bit of a mess in his tires. lol

Yep, Airsoft ones.

I just did my four tires yesterday, dismounted, cleaned the crap out of the beads, got rid of the weights, and added 6 oz of the .20 Airsoft bbs to each tire. The slight vibration I had is now gone.
