Air Soft BB's for balancing + Stauns = ???

Is it ok to use air soft BB's for balancing a tire assembly when using Stauns? I searched but couldn't find that answer.

I'm running Toyo MT's 38x14.50x16 on a 16x10 wheel if that matters. Also, I already have the wheels, tires, and Stauns so I'm not asking to see if I want to buy them or what others think of the Stauns. I just want to know if I can use the air soft BB's and if not something else I can use other then spin balancing with weights. They are going on a 1 ton TJ that is steet driven to and from the trails. Trails are New England rocks.

I've never run Stauns, but you'd obviously have to somehow get them inside the Stauns to work...not sure how that would work?

They dont have to go inside the Stauns. I'm talking inside the tire, outside the Stauns.

That is the option I am probably going to do if I can't do it cheaper with airsoft bb's.

I've run just plane old BB's before. Never any hint of a problem for the 3 or 4 years I had it like that. Don't know why airsoft bb's would be any diff.

I know its stupid to ask, but your saying you've run them with Stauns?

I was planning on trying 10 to 12 ounces of Air Soft BB's.

This is the chart that I used to measure the bbs for my tires.

As for your Stauns, I am unsure as I do not run them.

That is the exact chart I was looking at and the reason I said 10 to 12 ounces. It says 10, but everyone says the Toyo Open Country MT's take less weight to balance then other large MT's. Only other this to then consider is the out of balance caused by the Stauns extra valve stem.

Anyone else out there have experience running Stauns with some advice on balancing methods I can use?
