    Never use weights again.

    We've used these beads for years on our bikes. They work flawlessly. Just make sure to air your tire with the stem on the bottom side of the tire or a tiny bead may get stuck in the stem. For those that have trouble getting tires balanced with these maybe you had a bad tire. Tires with inner tubes, we used the vibration from a hair trimmer to help vibrate the little beads through the stem. With tubeless tires, they just pour in the stem.

    Great way to balance

    Great way to balance your tires, install can be a little tedious if you're puttting them in tubed tires. I had to fill up the little tube with beads then give them a shot with my air compressor to get them in. Otherwise they work great with zero vibration, wobble, or bounce!

    Never looking back

    I was not sure about beads in my tires. But I wanted to do my own tire changing. Put them in my car tires 1st. Worked great. Now have them in both tires on my Vulcan. Bike never ran smooth. And that goes for the car too!

    Worked as advertised

    I was a little sceptical but had a co worker recommend them. I'm glad I used them. Not only was I able to change my tires myself I saved on balancing charges and future balancing charges as the tires wear. I'm very happy with the results!

    difficult to use, poor balance

    These beads balance well for a few miles, then get stuck in the wrong spot.

    Working so far.

    I'm using it in the front tire (Bridgestone 90/110 19). At any speed, I can tell the difference in smoothness and stability while turning or going a little too fast straight ahead.

    A Must

    I was a little skeptical but had to try it, and the results were amazing. My R1 always had a slight vibration at lower highway speeds and smoothed out at around 75 mph, now I have no vibration. For now on this is what I'm going to use. These little glass bead definitely keeps your tires in a constant state of balance. And now I don't have to have my tires mounted by someone else, I can do it in my garage without needing to buy an expensive tire balancer.

    Doesn't work for me.

    2011 Harley Davidson Road Glide CVO. My tire is a Dunlop Elite 3 130/70-18. Last week I had the shop install this fresh tire along with 2 oz bag of beads. The old 2 oz lead weights were removed. With these beads I got a bad vibration in the handle bars after 60 MPH. I tried adding another ounce (3oz) and got to 65 MPH then the vibrations would come back. Added the last ounce I had left for a total of 4 oz. No better after 65 MPH. Today I had the beads removed and went back to lead weights.

    Works very well

    This product works very well and does what it says it will. The only hassle is trying to get the beads into the tire, but a little compressed air helped.

    EASY ON THE BEAD LUBE

    DON'T go crazy with the bead lube. Go real light and don't let any get in the tire well. Excessive lube may cause the product to snow ball negating it's efficiency and clog the valve stem.

    Tire Balancing Beads - Shifter Kart

    My least favorite preparation for racing my Shifter Kart on road tracks is balancing tires. An acquaintance suggested the Tire Balancing Beads. I used 1-ounce in each tire, front/rear. They worked just as advertised. I won't go back to the lead/steel stick-on weights unless the Tire Balancing Beads are no longer available. Great Product for Kart racing on road tracks!

    Works great

    Wasn't sure what to think of these, but they work great. Highly recommend putting the bag of beads into the tire before mounting, and it will break open the first time you ride. Theoretically you can add the beads through the valve stem with the core removed, but they don't go through the valve stem as advertised. I had to fill the little fill tube halfway and then use a shot of compressed air to get them through the valve core.

    Still the best

    I now have a couple thousand miles on the front tire after installing these. Never a problem and still rides as smooth as the day it was installed. Tires with weights have to be rebalanced periodically as the tire wears but with the beads, its like balancing your tire every time you ride. Still wont go back to wheel weights with tubeless tires.

    Work Great, But..

    Installed the beads on both my front and rear tires, and I must say the tires ride smooth at all speed ranges. Don’t think I’m ever going back to weights again. But BEWARE, the bead installation has a learning curve. Hint: Use an air hose to assist.
