Me too on the HF Balance wheel, EZ-PZ. And get this since you mention the "weld" (more like a scab) on the old steel wheels:
Front= 3 weights
Side= 4 weights
Rear= 11 weights. HaHa, must have been made after (or during) the morning Vodka break.
Yeah the HF stand is a no brainer for the cost.

It has other uses as well, like checking spoke tension and tweaking the rim straight by spoke tuning when you have the tire off.
It's much easier to put a 10mm socket on the spoke nipple bases inside the wheel than using that spoke wrench on the outside.

For balancing, I'm giving up on stick on weights, I love these new brass spoke weights.
A little pricier, but they aren't disposable and since Ural wheels and knobbies can need a lot of weight to balance them, totally worth it in my book.

I clamp a dial micrometer to a HF stand for wheel trueing. I wonder what dyna beads combined with slime would do? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Psssh. I used dyna beads on a number of bikes. They worked fine...100mph+ and noprollemboss. Then I discovered airsoft pellets. I’ve used them in a dozen tires with good results. If I can get a tube already loaded with dynabeads for 20 bucks, it’s on.

Used them for years. Love 'em. Have them in all my spare tubes. Be carefull - if you spill them on the floor they're quite-quite slipperey.

Only thing I've notices is an occassional "out of balance" feeling during slow startups. The beads need a few revolutions to even out inside the tube.

Agree with YellowDog. Preloaded is a steal.

Glad to have used them. Then again glad to not be using them too.

LOL, I use a spring clothespin to hold a zip tie to the stand and eyeball it.

My only issue with the DynaBeads I have in my Sears Allstate 250 is that they occasionally get stuck in the valve preventing it from closing all the way after an air pressure top-up. Playing around with it for a few minutes always fixes the problem...just be aware that you may experience this frustration.

FWIW, I have a Nissan 350 Z with some expensive forged wheels, where hitting a pothole cause the right front rim to bend. The manufacturer of the wheels went out of business and I could not find a replacement wheel anywhere. I had the wheel straightened by a specialty shop that does that, and it came out very nice cosmetically, but required 7 oz of weight to balance. I was getting ready to change all 4 wheels, at a cost of almost $2000. when I decided to try the dyna beads. It took more than twice the recommended amount, but it balanced the wheel for me, and smoothed out the ride, which had an unbearable vibration at 75-80 mph. I only put them in the one front wheel, and am very happy with the results,and money savings!

I would put the valve stem at 6 o'clock and shot some air in, before taking the reading.
That always seemed to work for me.

Yeah, I tried a couple different positions but static seems to keep some of the beads near the valve stem, on the inside of the tube, no matter how I position the wheel. With a couple bursts of air pressure they often free themselves...haven't had to remove a valve core yet.

I have been using dynabeads since 2011 or so. I did loose one inner tube because of them, my fault. NEVER check the tire pressure until you have blown some air into it first, otherwise the beads may keep the valve open. Other than that mistake on my part they beats weights on the spokes or rim.
