living on a dirt road all my life I have a keen ear for rocks vs nails or screws in tires as I first hit the road for the day. So NO, I do not remove the rocks.

Wow... no I don’t have time to pick rocks out of my tires. We have 80 mph speed limit here. At hiway speeds just a lane change will open the tread up.
I’ve actually never heard of this before.

I should also add I would be airing the tires back up at the same time. Plenty of time to check out the vehicle for any issues incurred while off-roading, and pick out the big rocks which would be come projectiles for my bodywork, or anyone following behind.

Never done that but I do pick out the seeds on my bananas.

If I happen to see or hear a big one and can get at it walking by the car, I'll pull it out - but certainly don't go looking for em!

Yep, usually when re-fueling I check to see for nails/screws and stones.

Nissan actually a technical service bulletin on this for the z-sports car.. I think it was the 370z. They talked about removing all the stones from the tread before balancing the tire, that mass could affect the balance. I thought I'd try that on my scion tc, and I actually got about 3oz of weight from the stones in the tread! That definitely could affect the balance. So nope it's not nuts when you're balancing a tire or if you suspect the balance is off, check for lots of stones.
