I looked at ours today .....looks like it would work to do it if all other options don't set well with you ....those balancing beads does sound like a great option too ...

Great question.....I don't know for sure, but I'll bet that whatever slow speeds they aren't effective at, is so slow that it wouldn't matter anyway.....if you email them with the commander's application criteria, let us know what they say pleaze

hey fellas. Click on the link that LBR provided and read. There is some great info on there. Me and 2 of my buddies went in together and purchase a NoMar tire changer. So we change our dirtbike tires, our roadbike tires and even our car tires. I use the dyna beeds in all of the tires that need to be ballanced. I do not have them in my Commander. I haven't felt a need to. The beeds are reusable and I have not had any problems with them.

After doing some research on these beeds I have discovered that Semi tires have been using them for yrs. The tires are so big that they can't hang enough lead weight to balance.

Im not sure that the commander tires need to be balanced. I have often thought that a second set of street tires would be nice to have on the commander for yard work and hopping around the neighborhood. Those I might consider balanceing or useing dyna beeds. The stock tire are a little aggressive for the yard and street.

Just my opinion
