I spent 30 bucks on a balancing bead kit, but the guy lined up the yellow dot with the valve stem and I've been riding without issue since. Beads are still on the shelf. Tread wear is even and I don't notice any wobble or tracking problems. This on BT-023s. I hope every tire set goes this well.
Be careful with the beads. Did a 3-day spirited ride with a guy on a Tiger 800 XC with beads. At an aggressive pace, he found that the beads in the front wheel shifted and threw off the balance and his comfort level entering corners. I think they are meant more for cruisers or riding at a slower pace with less aggressive cornering.
