    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!

    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.

    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.

    Do Not!

    Do Not use these! They will void any warranty that you think you have. The manufacturers will not accept a warranty on your tire if balance beads are used. Just hope you don't get a defect in your tire when you have these installed, otherwise, you are going to be out the entire cost of the tire if they find you used these. Otherwise. Great product.

    Not so good

    Put a bag in each tire of my KLR. Still have a vibration. First time I tried to do a pressure check the supplied valve stem clogged up with beads and all the pressure went out. Had to remove stem and blow it out then put the air back in.

    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.

    difficult to use, poor balance

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