It is important to balance the tires to prevent premature feathering and bounce. but you don't need to us the traditional lead weights. I use Dyna Beads inside the tires.

I agree. Balancing is a necessity, but I am using Dyna Beads on my new tires, have put a couple thousand miles on them, and couldn't be more pleased. They're smooth and vibration-free, and supposedly they will wear a lot longer as well.
