Here's my question.I was talking to an old retired 18 wheeler driver who told me all he ever used to balance the wheels in his 18 wheeler was 3 golf balls. He reckoned 2 balls would do for a mc tire. Anyone ever heard of this?
I am unfamiliar with AirSoft pellets, but hear they have been used with success in balancing MC tires, although they certainly will not pass through the Schrader valve. Take about 2 or 3 ounces of them and wrap loosely in a single ply of toilet tissue. Mount one side of the tire onto the rim, lay the package into the inside of the tire before seating the upper bead. I use Honda center mounted weights myself.prs
Back in the 60's and 70's, I did know fellow truckers who used the golf balls. When they'd bring their tires in for replacement, there usually wasn't much left of the golf ball, and overall was a mess.I had a friend that put them in his truck tires, but after looking at them when he had a flat, I wouldn't put them in mine. They were worn down and almost square, that can't be good for the inside of your tire. I have also tried the balancing powder and that worked petty good.
