    DynaBeads?

    Anyone here ever try this on their rigs? I have a friend with beadlocked 35's who had a hard time keeping his tires balanced and he swears by them. They seem pretty popular in the motorcycle community.

    I have never heard of Dynabeads, but that's not a very objective video. He only runs the empty bottle at a low speed, which magnifies the wobble, even when the beads are in. I'm not saying they don't work, and he sounds honest... Hopefully someone here has some experience with them.

    I have something very similar in my RV tires and they work great. Not a single issue with wheel balancing.

    I just put some in an escalade with 22's that we couldnt get the wheels to balance right on (the rims were bent). The beads were a huge improvement, the small shake at highway speed is about 98% gone. Although it was next to impossible to pour them through the valve stem, instead i just broke a bead on the tire and poured them in that way. After the experience with the escalade we started keeping a bag in stock.

    that's pretty interesting. i have heard of adding golf balls to big rig tires to balance them out too but always kinda chuckled at it. i wonder how it works in the physical science sort of way.

    Nice. I've heard of this before, but never heard of anyone actually trying it. Nice to hear that people have actually had good results with this.

    I run dynabeads in my Goldwing tires and will never go back to wheel weights.
    Never tried them in a full sized tire.

    As someone who as done countless wheel balances including oversized rims imo most wheel guys are lazy and don't do a proper rfwheel balance. since you do you have a lot of work.
    First you need a clean rim and mounting spot. then make sure the hub does not have a large lateral runout. when the rim only is on the machine the any high/low spots should be marked as well as lateral inner and outer highspots. then the light spots in the rim should be marked. now when installing the tire if marked the high/low spot should be aligned to the opposite on the rim. now the rim is spun with a load provided by the machine. NOTE: wheel balances only balance up tio 55mph. The load helps the machine find any run out and suggest a realignment of the tire on the rim. then rim is respun withe load until minimal runout in achived.
    then the tire/wheel can be balanced with weights. If a tire cant be matched to a certian rim it should be removed and tried on another one. If rim is hard to rf balance the rim may be bad even if within specs.
    -placement can depend on wheel type or customer preference
    - no more than 35grams should be added to either side of rim (I do not like to split weights or to use multiple weights at one spot.
    - if weights are added then found to be not enough or tomuch the weight should be removed then respun and new readded.

    Mounting wheel onto the vechicle any noted lateral runout should bematched to the oppostie from tire to wheel.
    -this is why on car balancers are preffered.
    - if the rims are aftermarket and the center is larger than the center hub boss a spacer should be added to take up the gap and make the rim centered on the hub. Through experience i have found this true whether hub or lug centric.

    hope this helps next time your at the tire shop and get out in 30min. or if it takes forever. you know what is/isnot being done back there and check the amount of weight and for any tire crayon marks if you payed for the roadforce.
