[Edit] I believe you are asking about tire balancing beads??

I'm pretty sure they are compatible with TST and TPMS, but check with those manufacturers to make sure. The valve core is replaced with one that doesn't allow the beads to escape the tire.

Here's a couple links to help you with your decision.

Do I have to balance duals?

Best of luck with your decision.

I'm going with the Hankook AH12.
Did a fair mount of research and the ratings are good and the price is much better than the Michelin's. Currently have Goodyears with the known side tread wear issue.

That's interesting, I just got a quote from a local tire shop for the same tire, Hankook AH12 275/70/22.5 for 6 tires $2949 installed out the door. Balancing would be extra and I am looking at the Beads my self.

Equal is another one.
For 275/70/22.5 tires put in
B-10oz bag in each font tire
A-12oz bag in each rear tire

And don't forget the special valve core for each tire.

Have it in my G670 275/70/22.5 tires for over 9 years so far without any problem.

I decided to get the Crosman ASP5025 High Impact Exact Precision 6mm seamless airsoft BB's from Wal-Mart. A container of 5000 .25 gram was about $15, and was enough to do two tires with some left over. That's compared to about $20 PER TIRE for the Dynabeads. I went to the Dynabeads website and found out that they recommend 12 oz. of beads in my tires. Yeah, I know the Dynabeads are ceramic and will probably last longer, but I talked with a guy on this forum that owned a trucking company who has been using the BB's in all his trucks for years and is very satisfied with them.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

You could be right but since the guy owned a fleet of trucks and had been using them for several years, I thought that was a pretty good recommendation!

"owned a trucking company who has been using the BB's in all his trucks for years and is very satisfied with them."

Sounds a pretty safe endorsement to me. If they melted, it would be quite obvious to whoever dismounts the tyres so that would mean they don't melt and don't build up heat.
