View Full Version : Balancing Beads in Tires??

So anyone have experience with using these ? My buddy hooked up the install and used these beads to balance. At about 70k/m and above it shakes like a "salt shaker" ... I phoned him back and he asked about it, told him , and he suggested to add more into the tire??

should I go back to weights or what??

36x12.5x15 TSL radials is what I am using

I've used balancing beads in semi truck tires that worked, but I think that is what they were designed for. I used them for a buddy's truck in 37's and they worked for awhile, but he went back to traditional balancing. Other than him, I know nobody who likes the beads in their tires, or that worked...period. Some people used a liquid, I did once, and worked ok. But nothing is going to work as good as a proper balance. Myself, I run unbalanced tires on beadlocks that wore great and rode great, never needed balancing.

So my suggestion is A. get your tires balanced properly..or B. get better tires (keep in mind I have no idea what you running, so I am not judging what you have)

to make it easy, just go buy 4 2000 count air soft canisters.

dump 1 in each tire.

they you don't have to screw around weighing them and BS.

that tire is small enuf that a static balance should make er smooth, unless the tire or wheel is out of round.

also get used to flat spots if you dd it. if you run lower psi it tends to take a bit of cruzing to make em round again. ( from being parked over night/at work)

beads are a good cure for some problems but not on this radial.

ive got dynabeads in my 35" trxus. they're not bad, although i do get a bit of a shimmy at about 60km/h. not as smooth as my bfg's with sticky weights though but the trxus is about 10-12lbs heavier. i'll probably be tossing the beads in favour of proper weights as i bought them used like that. the beads dont offer as good of lateral balance as properly placed weights.

the boggers on my yota didnt shake without a stabilizer after they warmed up before they warmed up and got round
shook between 50 and 60 km
the q78s on my ford were the same way
filling them with stave goo seemed to helplol
but the guy at the tire store wasnt impressed
when he broke the bead boosh stave goo every where lol

I ended up going back to my buddy Ish @ RT tires. He put TOO much in the first time , so we dropped down to about 8-8 1/2 ounces and she rides great now!

Also tested out my flex clearance with the new tires a bit, so Ish could snap some photos for his shop.
So glad my setup allows me to clear these tires, cause I know I am gonna love em ![36]
