    Anyone know if I can get the small tire balancing beads past the TPMS sensors inside the wheels?

    I am starting to think this vibration issue has to do with overload springs/worn shocks. I was towing my camper last night and it went away.

    Doesn't mean I used them...LOL. I did get a participation trophy though :rofl:

    Some like them and others say they suck ball sack and ass crack.

    I'm still leaning towards shocks. Some roads that are smooth, this goes away.

    In my personal experience, run far far away from those beads. They "suck ball sack and ass crack". In my experience ...

    Thank you for sharing your experiences.

    I am now leaning towards shocks and crap road conditions in CO.

    I've had these beads in my Trail Grapplers for About 1 and 1/2 year now. I have had no issues. At highway speed, my truck runs smooth as silk which is very impressive for MT tires.
