    Actually try the valve stem at either 4:00 or 8:00. I find less angle, better!!!

    How do you know how much to put in a tire? If you have a tire that would require 2 oz of normal weight and you put in 3 oz of dyna beads what happens to the other 1 oz thats not really needed, but is in your tire? Do they just gravitate around?

    They get evenly distributed around in the tire.

    Okay. Count me as a believer! At 923 miles on my new K-9, I caught a rusty wood screw in the original 300 Venom. The shop replaced it with a new Cobra and I told them "no balance please". Long story short, I removed the old weights, cleaned, polished, and reinstalled the rear wheel. Removed the valve stem, and installed the beads at about a 4 o'clock angle. A little vibration and done!

    Front installation was even easier. I took it easy on the test ride, no problems at speeds up to 65. Re-checked everything and went on a poker run Saturday. IMHO, where the beads earn my respect is at speeds above 65 mph. The beads are MUCH smoother at high speed than conventional wheel weights. I'll never put that ugly lead on my rims again. Many thanks to Jake over at LowDownChopShop.

    Another method to get the dyna beads to flow is to place the edge of your orbital/vibrating sander on the hose, next to the edge of the valve stem. The sanders vibration will start a tornado type effect within the hose (something we're familiar with here in KS) and the beads will circle right in.
