ok so I have just done a ton of reading, like doug says people use air soft pellets, I even found a chart on how much weight in pellets or bbs to use per tire. Im totally going to try this and start with around 12 oz per tire. "they" say 7 oz for a 35 and go up an oz every inch.

What pressure are you running them at? I've ran 36-40" tsl's and boggers on the road... never even tried balance them, ran at like 20-25ish psi on a S10 never had a problem... some were with beadlocks too. Smoooth sailing at 120 down the hwy. No water, No airsoft, No weights, Nothing.

Me too and have had great smooth running tires but these tsls are not so smooth lol, I had 38.5 boggers before no weights and they were super smooth, right now i have a set of 35 boggers and they are also super smooth. My 36 tsl's needed balancing and i still got death wobble from them, replaced everything that needed it in the front end and still did it, so i started playing with air pressure and got them to work fine around 15 psi. My 40s on the other hand, 20 psi death wobble at 55, 25 psi wobble around 65, 15 psi minor wobble and 12 to 10 psi i can drive it at speed but i still get bad shaking in the truck not the wheel. after i put the 36 tsls back on yesterday after stave on the 40's it felt like a new truck.

your going to need min 16 oz.

I run 16 in my 38's and they are great.
I even ran 16 oz in my 36's

groove them! i grooved mine and they calmed right down, then i was told on the way to the spudspudspudspudspud that i have a bent rear rim, which was causing all the shake in the truck, cause i just rebuilt the whole front end so it couldnt have been that,

I had thought about that, I bet they would soften up and roll a lot better

From what I've read on forums, magazines, and talking to folks with huge tires, some have used water, golf balls, tennis balls, and air soft pellets, and ofcourse Dynabeads.
According to dynabeads website, 10-12 ounces per tire.
Here's a link to Dynabeads tire chart:

The other system I know of are the Centramatic onboard continual wheel balancers.

My oldest sister delivers propane is big rig and her tractor trailer setup uses them.

Bal-an-cing??? what is this balancing?

The rig shaking like a dog shitting razorblades is normal isn't it? besides, it puts my baby boy to sleep in like a block.

36tsls on my yota 100kmh no probs no balancin grooved and weld on beadlocks...


38.5 15 15 tsls on my bronco......55kmh wobble.......... but its got loose front end parts..............................

i love TSLs.....for me one of the best biasply driving on/off road tire ive had
and will be usin them on any future builds..
if u wanna sell the TSLs let me know..


if the wobble is that bad im sure u checked ur front end for play...
if anything is loose .... itll wobble a 40 is alot of rolling mass...

even the toe/in out adjustment can solve some wobblin probs...

if the front end and balljoints n steering are tight.......
. and its that bad is it possible u have a bent rim??......

ive never balanced interco tsl tires and have never had problems...

thats why im wondering if theres another problem......
i have also found on used tires if they arent worn even or the previous owner had bad front end issues and had a wobble ...
the tire gets worn in a way makin it tough to balance out....
.
.
.prob all usless info for ya........
but its what i got...

yea they could be a little un evenly worn, and who knows maybe one of the rims are bent too, idunno yet, but i do have a skinnier set of wheels im going to move them over to any how, and im going to throw the air soft bbs in and see what happens.

Haha, I work at a tire shop. There's no point balancing them. No matter what you doo they will be bumpy as shit :(

so after installing the air soft bbs's, I gotta say theres little to no side to side shaking any more, they still hop a bit but no balancing will fix that, there just not round enough. But all in all they have big time calmed down.

now cut them the fuck up and see how much smoother they get never mind the traction advantage ..

Indeed, I had also borrowed nicks groover and went to town on them, what a differance in how much mud they throw.

Lol i got a bent rim and the truck drove better... Got TSL's balanced at KAL tire and theres a fuckload of weights on them but i do 120-140 highway no wobble...

I poured some rv antifreeze in the tires ( cant remember how much ) but it helped alot. next to no shake once they warm up.
