Most guys here that use them love them. I won't use them myself as despite the love, the logic just does not add up in my brain.

Do you understand everything that goes on in your life daily? You don't need to understand how they work; only that they do. Let the engineers worry about the why.

Yes, they work well!!!

When I put new tires on my 1800 it will have beads put in. They have the weights on now and they are an eyesore. After a tire gets wore after awhile the weights would not be in optimum location. Beads go where they are needed.

+1. I love mine. Do I really know they work? Not really, but I got no vibration.

I know they work from experience, used in a poorly balanced tire, with and then without the lead weights on. I also do NOT think they can overcome an out-of-round tire. Lead weight can't smooth an out-of-round tire either.
