Equal tire balancing powder, sounds good to me!

The chebby forum was tossing the idea of Equal, golf balls, BB's, etc around awhile back, but nobody that I recall had solid evidence that the stuff worked. I was just on the MBB board and several people indicated that the stuff is awesome. It's made for "big truck" tires but apparently it works on big 4x4 tires as well (or any size).

anybody here have experience with the stuff? it almost sounds too good to be true, especially for 38"+ tires that just wont stay round.

here's another writeup i found:

i can dig up the MBB link if you want, but it's fairly recent so search for it if you want to read those guys' opinions

Re: Equal tire balancing powder, sounds good to me

i havnt used it but two of my friends did and swore buy it . they put it thier 38's the only problem they said was that when you stopped for a long time it would all collect at the bottom and make it off balance till it got redistributed .
i've thought about adding some to my lowly <-? 33's

come on muddy, tuff it out! you dont like shaking the teeth out of your mouth with unblalanced swamper ride?
Equal sucks when it gets wet, and turns into a concrete like mix, then it is useless. You are also required to run special valve stems with equal.
We dropped 3 golf balls into each of the back tires of "99jeeperxj"'s unbalanced SX's on sunday, no report back from him on the ride home. We will know more once we get the other front end in his jeep and swap over the other two tires to the 5.5 lug pattern.

well you could pull off what they do in tractor tires, SALT WATER, and then they will balance out and have more traction, and more momentum, and less stopind power.
