There is an article in MCN (this month - last month?) on balancing beads. Their conclusion is that they are no substitute for doing a proper balance with external weights.

I have those beads in now on a set of Bridgestones .....
so far so good, but I have less than 3000 miles on them but they seem smooth and I have no vibration at any speed up to 110 mph
Time will tell

I'm not sure but I think they said the beads would not interfere.

Article is on back page of the October issue of MCN.
