    They are dumbasses. I used Dynabeads years and years ago. Worked fine for me and my Ridgeback.

    For vehicle tires, the led weights are much cheaper, and I always install them on the inside of the wheel so you can't see them. I have had guys watch me do this and say its not the same on the back, I tell them to place it back on the balancer, and its spot on. I've been doing this since the early 70's, they become believers in a hurry. :oldlaugh:

    I did this on the last set, sure crap the weights came off. This time around I simply turned the tire on the rim until it was perfect. My front wheel needed a penny size weight and I can live with that on the outside.... But when you ride 25 miles a year I guess it doesn't matter, for us it matters......

    When you get new vehicle tires, the yellow, white or red dot is where the valve stem is supposed to line up, the tire is balanced to compensate or the valve stem.

    25 miles a year is a good year:old2::oldlaugh:
