Personally I can not even comprehend how 'balance beads' or 'balance fluid' could possibly "Work"! And, I've been in the 'business' for over 40 years!
The heavy spot of the wheel/tire assembly wants to be the farthest from the center line of the axle on a rotating assembly, correct?
So any 'fluid' balancing medium should in "my mind" also want to 'migrate' to the outer perimeter of the rotating assembly, not the lighter 'inner' perimeter of the assembly!

A computer spin-balancer does Not spin fast Enough to even measure the balance of a wheel filled with any liquid or beads, to the best of my knowledge!
