Yes, Dyna Beads work and I just participated in a group buy on Advrider for a bargain @ $1 per ounce + actual postage. It takes 2 oz rear & 1 oz front.I guess the biggest hassle I can think of is collecting them from a tire change, but I haven't done that so far(some do with a piece of plastic underneath) and just give them up in a change. I have used them for a good while and my experience is that they work great, just rolling around down there and no worries that they will come unstuck and POLLUTE THE ENVIRONMENT! That is a larger part of the issue with wheel weights that has not been mentioned here, so I'll say it again. Google "lead wheel weights" or something to that effect and you will see that it is an area of concern far larger than this mans possibly bent rim!Some states have laws and some car companies(Subaru is one I remember) are progressive in the direction of no lead weights.It is amazing how many #'s of lead (if you read for a few minutes you will see the estimates) goes into our world via the streets and weight fall offs. Who hasn't seen the weights laying about here and there on pavement?
Back to the thread-it is a no brainer that no ceramic bead is going to rectify a bent rim, however the beads do work and are not a "hassle to install" as previously stated. I have also read that many use the soft air gun pellets to the same effect for even less $. #1-The environment is a winner#2- you don't need someone else's or your own tire balancer and #3-they work great! and#4-are not expensive from any source if you take in the whole picture!
