    Sorry for the side track question...How much/many AirSoft plastic BBs goes into a Motorcycle tire? How about a car tire?

    Thanks!

    I use 1-2 oz front and 2-3 oz rear and that seems to work well...

    I was just looking at the chart Murray posted and it shows that I should use 1oz up front and 2 oz in the rear. Ron is there a benefit to using more beads than the chart suggests?

    Slacker,

    I don't think there's any advantage - I'm just not super careful to get exactly the right amount in and may let a few more in than called for. I've probably never put in a full extra oz. These seem to work well, but you have to break the bead to put them in, so if you don't want to do that Dynabeads are the way to go. My kid is getting used to the question "...hey, where are those plastic Airsoft BB's of yours?"
