When you say bags... are you talking about the air soft BB's for balancing tires....

If so, the only tiem I've really seen them used is for bigger MT's like the Super Swampers since they are hard to spin balance...

i'm having a bit of death wobble start...i was going to get an alignment and tire balancing to see if it helps...before the death wobble thing the equal bags (sold for semi tires and also oversized tires, not airsoft bb's) seemed to work great...

death wobble is not caused by tire balance or alignment.
