On the same subject, has anyone ever seen the use of small ball bearings in a tire, about an ounce or two, to replace lead weights to balance the tire
as it gets up to roadway speed? I have seen small, 3/16" to 1/4" ball bearings fall out of a tire when it was changed but couldn't get any information
on it from the owner.
Also, Nitrogen has been the go to gas in recent years to put in a well sealed tire. Unlike air molecules which eventually escape (that's why you must
check your air pressures routinely, as well as for slow leaks and punctures) Nitrogen molecules are much larger than air molecules and are less likely
to escape through the synthetic rubber compounds that make up a tire. Also, supposedly the nitrogen isn't affected by heat or cold as much as air
