I have a Snap-On computerized balancer at my disposal. I have Dynabeads in the tires.

We had a customer buy a set of wheels that were way out of balance to the point they needed 3 1/2 ounces of lead weights. He couildn't bear that ugly stuff on his shiny new wheels. So we got him some Dynabeads and installed them. Worked very well on a very shitty set of wheels. I was sold. And I was quite skeptical prior to that experience but that's changed.
Curious how many dyna beads to balance that 3.5oz out rim?
