What amazes me about these wheels is their ability to manipulate the minds of their owners to believe that they ‘don’t vibe too bad’ or that ‘they can change’ or ‘they said they love me’...

Is your G in an abusive to relationship with it’s wheels too? ;)

The only advantage that I can figure out is the ability to run super low pressures. Field replace-ability of a tire really isn't really better than with a standard rim.

Nothin' says Badass as a G going 60mph while vibrating your fillings out LOL
I got snow in the rims of my wife SUV this weekend - headed to highway and after 10 mins I thought I was going to puke, had to stop and fix it.
Now these are badass :)

I wonder if something like this would help get the Hutchinsons balanced:

There is an aspect of economics that I don't understand. If these work as well as carefully applied weights, why doesn't every tire shop use the beads instead?

Weights are cheap, easy to install, and the machine tells you how much to put on. Dynabeads you have to figure out how many to put in, break the bead, and put them in. I've successfully used Dynabeads in many Unimog tires and they definitely make a difference, but it takes a lot, considering they are ~$5/oz, that adds up compared to lead weights. Lead weights are old, tried tested and true. With beads, you might have to go back to the tire shop a few times until you get the right amount figured out, that's not economical for a tire shop.

The nice thing is they don't get ripped off when offroad, they dynamically balance when you get mud/snow/ice in the rim (to a point, they are no magic bullet but they work up to a certain weight). They don't blow out the valve stem when lowering tire pressure (if they are the right size) and don't attract moisture and clump and rust rims like powder.

They do take some speed to spread out and balance, and when you hit a good bump they scatter, but collect themselves shortly after.

And beads don't coming flying through the back of the cab in event of a blowout, like golf balls :) (don't use golf balls...ever)

I haven’t had any issues with vibration or shaking, and have run them up to about 80 mph on the interstate. My neighbor is the general manager of a local tire center and had his team do the lift, wheels and tires. No problems to report!
