If a bunch of us go in on a bucket, that's $4 a pound (about 4-8 tires worth), vs. about $80/lb. when sold as "Dyna Beads". I'm gonna PM the dude and see if he's looked into this further.
+1 and I would be willing to go in for some of the beads. Shouldn't be a problem to come up with 20 folks on here to buy $10 worth. What I really need to do is talk the shop at work into using this type of beads
