even if there were just a liquid in the tire, it would balance out.
assuming there was not too much liquid oz in the tire.
lots of tractor tires with anti-freeze in them; but that was for adding a lot of weight
I have been using Dyna Beads w/o any problems.
wonder how many ounces you put in that tire originally before they powdered into dust?
to me, it sounds like there was not enough weight to balance the tire.
it is better to have an ounce too much, than not enough.
ie, I have 4 oz in my GL1800 rear tire. that is more than needed, but I have never, ever, felt an imbalance with it.
The front tire has 3 oz in it.
My personal preference is to using beads, as they will always compensate for unbalances caused by picking up a rock in the tread, or some mud.... then when the debris slings off, the tire will re-balance once again.
