Ceramic beads replace wheel weights?

Hey ya'll. The guy I bought my bike from told me that he uses ceramic beads in his tire instead of wheel weights. He said some guy in New York makes them and blah blah about how they work. I'd never heard of this before, has anyone else? The bike rides smooth like it's on a rail, so they must work. Does anyone know where I can get more? I replacing my rear tire due to a nail.

Thanks for the link. I just read the testimonials, you never know if those are legit or not. But like I said earlier, they work fine in my 10.

Here's the link:http://www.innovativebalancing.com/testimonial.htm

I know my fellow Jeep owners tend to use regular BB's for balancing. Is this the same sorta thing?

Keep us posted sneaky. Would be nice to not have wheel weights stuck or clamped on your wheels, imo.
