Question Tire Balancing Beads, Wheel Weights and so on...

Does anyone have any experiences with Tire Balancing Beads? Changing wheels (BST Carbon) and getting new tires (probably Q3) and will need the wheels balanced. I've read of Balancing beads, powder coated weights and zinc weights and so on and I'm torn on the options. Leaning on the beads but would love to hear some sound advice.
Thanks!

I think I read somewhere not to use beeds. I had a friend install them on his bike and. Had problems soon after. One if thee issues was letting air out to adjust pressure.

I forgot to add the link that I was looking at. In the reviews its either love it or very few problems like that where the tire lost air pressure and the valve was removed and cleaned and represurized and the problem never returned.

I wanted youtube videos of people with air guns doing them, which I don't have. I just had the tire shop to them for me.
