Dyna-beads, are balancing beads. They are an active balancing agent that moves to constantly rebalance the tire. You can not use steel wieghts on a tire with active balacers inside, because the tire balancing machine does not measure the tire correctly and you will never get a 0-0 balance. Some people balance the tire first, then add beads, but that only addresses the initial balance and as the tire wears could cause more harm than good.
Yes yes thank you for clearing that
I am aware though of those definitions specially after I googled this subject yesterday
But bead lock wheels and other accessories like those are almost impossible to find over here and when I saw those inner locks I figured this could be my answer to lock my tire beads to the wheels I already have !
Anyway... Those Hutchinson wheels look amazing. I might have a set shipped all the way over here one day (added to future mods)
My only remark on them is that they don't make them wider the 8" on 15's and the backspacing isn't that good, or is it?
I'm currently running 15"X10" wheels...although I forgot the backspace size on them but they are perfect for my normal lift.
