Never tried them myself but I have heard they work very well on 4x4 mudder trucks with big tires since a lot of them cannot be balanced on a normal machine - some of those guys even use golf ***** on those things... same principle so I would assume it would work on bike tire.

Sounds like the same idea that we run in our mud truck. We use golf ***** because of the size of tire, 44". They help in that application. I used to run a balance powder in my tire for my street rig. It had 35" tires and worked well as long as you didn't let it sit to long. Then all of the powder would settle in one spot. The idea is right for the beads, but with most motorcycle tires it it generally the rim that you are balancing. Tires nowadays a quite true in form, unless you set the real cheapoo tires.
