You have to be driving at least 30mph or so to where the bb's balance out, anything under that and there's not enough force to where they circle the inner perimeter of the tire. Theoretically the faster you go, the better they balance. As long as your going fast enough the bb's will recover after a hit to where they continue to do their job.
Here's a generic tire size/bb count chart - http://www.innovativebalancing.com/BigTirechart.htm

Yup its worth noting that the speed at which the bb's start to work correctly is tire size dependant. And that they only balance out vertical imbalance. That said unbalanced tires are normally not a problem to drive until you get up to 35 or 45 anyway.
Great day on at Moonlight offroad. Got stuck a couple of times, but no breakage. Loaded up in the rain on Friday night and my son, our new Great Dane pup Boba Fett, and I hit the road early Saturday morning. Our group was 3 Tjs, an LJ, and a JK. We covered a ton of ground and ran most of the fun trails in the park without any breakage from anyone.
Overall first impression of the new MT2s and Method Beadlocks... Awesome! The weight difference seemed to my Jeep back in the power band. The MT2s did outstanding in the loose dirt and rock hill climbs, and the wet rock waterfalls. They did seem to pack easily in the soupy mud, but I hate mud and idle through it, Im sure wheel spin is a friend here. I ran the tires at 7 PSI and they never burped any air, and the sidewalls flexed great for a new tire. The narrower track width of the Jeep made wheeling the tight wooded trails a ton easier as well. Overall, I could not be happier with the switch, and it was nice to drive the Jeep 60 MPH on the HWY to go get beer after.
I guess the spacers and heavy *** wheels were pretty hard on the stock Unit berrings. I was doing a once over last night and was missing 3 wheel studs. Replaed the UB and am getting loaded up for Wa$hita. Hopefully it will be a good day in the rocks
Awesome day on the trail. I have to admit, I like these tires 100% more than the Krawlers. They are starting to chunk a good bit now. Today was also as close as I ever want to be to rolling the Heep. Thank goodness my 4 year old was chanting our motto. "When in doubt, throttle out"
