RE: H1 - DIY Double Beadlock Wheels
Wrapping things up.

One benefit of a paired 24 bolt wheel vs the others is a round valve stem hole. I used a 27° metal stem made for a Mack or Volvo truck. It fits nicely between the wheel and rock ring.

To balance the tires I used Airsoft pellets. If you go this route make sure they are seamless or they will disintegrate and clump. You can also use bbs, buckshot, ball bearings, golf balls, or whatever.

Here is a chart that gives a suggested weight per tire.

These call for 10oz

One nice thing about balancing this way is the tire will stay balanced even if your wheels are full of mud or ice. Another is you dont have to worry about a weight falling off. One downside is at low speeds there isn't enough centrifugal force to fling the pellets outward, which may cause a wobble.

And here is everything bolted together Big Grin Make sure to draw everything together evenly, and torque each nut!
