Any one ever used balancing beads in tires instead of wieghts
I tried them in my 35s. They didn't work well. At lower speeds I had a bad shimmy and on the highway I got bad vibes. Even after adding more beads, it still didn't help. I went back to lead weights and have been fine every since. The guy at the tire shop was telling me that beads tend to work better on larger tires than 35s.
I ran 10oz's of Dynabeads in my 35" KM2's on 15x5 steelies. They ran great on the road in my opinion. I run 4oz's in my 225/75/R15's on steelies on my Ranger. They run smooth up to 80mph most of the time. Sometimes I get a few vibes, but nothing too bad. I run 11.5oz's of .25g airsoft bb's in the 35" Krawlers on steel beadlocks now on the Jeep. They have some vibes to them, but really, at this point I can't blame the tires. It could be either driveshaft, or the alignment, or something else bent in the suspension. All in all, they run reasonably well down the road for being almost 115 lbs each.
It's not an addiction. It's a way of life.
I had never heard of em but they tend to do alright low speed is kinda ruff but I can blame the tires I dont think they ever seen pavement so I got a few rotations to go before I ever get them round they were rock crawling in the jeep before I got it and im sure the rocks did the tires no justice
