Here's how they work:
On a floating suspension, including a sprung suspension, the out-of-balance tire rotates around its center of balance which is not its geometric center--it would appear to wobble up & down on the spring loaded suspension. This wobble has the light part of the tire farther from the true center, so centrifugal force moves the balancing beads to this farther away part of the tire. As the beads move, their weight in the lighter and farther away part of the tire balances the tire and its rotation smooths out.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
