Equal/Airsoft/etc. to balance

Ok, so I read THIS thread and I have a couple of questions...

I was planning on using Equal to balance my 41" Rockers. Found a place that sells it here in AL near me, but they don't have the "tool" needed to install it in a mounted tire. So, I'm wondering what I should do.

Honestly, I could drive it all the way back to Jersey like this. It has a little wobble, but I can set my cruise around 63 or so and be fine all the way home.

However, I'd like to take care of it if I can.

I read about Airsoft BBs in the thread above. I'd assume I could break my inner bead and pour them in, right? Same with Equal, but I'm not sure what my best route would be.

Can someone weigh in here with experiences?

Don't put something in there that you will regret later.

Out of those choices I chose airsoft.

I have dynabeads and am very happy, they cured my problems.

What's the difference between Airsoft and Dynabeads?

Can I get the Airsoft beads into a tire if I air them all the way down and break the inner bead? I don't want to break all 32 bolts on my beadlocks if I don't have to.
