work. Worth the cost - you decide. If you're going to replace a tire/tube may as well spend the couple of bucks on dyna beads, unless you'd rather buy a beer. Probably get better mileage out of the beer.
Looking to spend money on your Ural - try a better headlight.
I haven't needed any spare parts, yet. Thats' sure to change now though.

I use dynabeads in my Gear Up, Seems to work as well or maybe even better than the factory spoke weights. I intend to keep using them too, sure easier than the traditional method of balancing, at least for me.

They work

As I change my own tyres I find beads are a whole lot easier to fit than buying a balancing rig.

However! there are some things to consider. If you are reaming out the valve hole (as you have to on some tubes) make sure you don't drop the drill bit down the hole. Don't ask me how I know that. You mentioned they will come already installed in the tubes. So probably not a problem.

I tend not to use them in tubeless tyres though. Not for any other reason than I carry a tyre plugging kit. Dyna beads stick to the glue.
