Balancing beads made it even worse!

I have developed a 50-55 shimy and have made several trips to RC, chunked both tires and rims and never had to re-balance my tires so I figured it was time. I dumped in 8 oz of competition grade airsoft pellets in my 35 12.5 15's and not the shake is even worse at 50-55! Do I need more beads? or maybe a few more ounces of antifreeze? I have heard these things are amazing for balancing big tires what gives?

I've had no issues, there is a chart out there somewhere with the amount of weight you should put in there. Maybe the antifreeze is making it worse.

one thing guys dont realize....if you are only 1 ounce out of balance, adding 8 does not help! you need to balance it first, see what it calls for and then add the right amount.

Why not just take it somewhere to get balanced?
