Centramatic Wheel balancers

Has anyone run these or know if they work?? I saw them in 4wd hardware and don't really see how they could do anything to balance a wheel. Do you just install them and don't have to do any balancing of the wheels?? Thanks

not exactly sure what they are, but I had a related question, I saw a few sites that put BB's in their tires to balance them and was wondering if this worked and how it worked??

maybe this is the same kind of thing?

Using the soft bb's works just fine. You just need to find the appropriate amount for your particular application. Much cheaper than centramatics. There's several calculators on the web now.
