having done powder coating and also painted several motorcycles (and no I cannot afford an expensive powder set up as in the article) for something with all the contours and ins and outs I would prefer paint and a good primer.

No, because I was not experiencing wheel vibration and was happy with the standard weights. But if you want to try them they are not expensive and easy to inject as long as you can get the valve cores back in without damaging them. Incidentally, they are Dyna Beads.

I figured about the spelling after googling it. It appears nice and since the entire assembly would need rebalancing they make sense.

I didn’t see anything on their website that mentioned patching a flat with the beads installed.

Wheels finally back from the powdercoaters and they did a much better job than I could have done with a rattle can.

Once I get the mudguards back on I will be ready for more winter driving.

Now you just have to dye the dog to match the wheels.
