5000 X .25 Gram = 1250 Grams (44.09 OZ) ($15 if I remember right)
THey also had a
5000 X .20gram = 1000 gram (35.27 OZ) For less money of course
I'd put in 12oz your tires then.
Remember putting in exactly 12oz is not needed. you do have put in more weight than what is needed to correct any imbalance.

I'm sure you noticed the 1LB (16oz) i said i used in my 35 inch off road tires.
These are Very agressive tread tires and as such the balancing can be off by quite a bit when new and change more thats why most people use so much weight in off road tires.

The Equal powder can be installed through the valve stem, or- if they are changing the tire they just throw a bag inside the tire as they mount it.. My dealer added the special valve cores and gave me a few to carry for replacements. Never had any leak down, or clumping.. They worked well.

However- on my present set of 22.5 inch Goodyears, I had them spin balanced and used centering sleeves on the lug nuts, very smooth ride. http://www.tru-bal.com/manual/solution.c.pdf
