Dyna Beads

Just added Dyna Beads to my tires. Anyone else out there used them and how did you rate them.

For those of us who never heard of Dyna Beads, what exactly are they? I googled it and found it's a tire balancing product, but I have no idea how they work.

Did you add them through the valve stem or did you install them with a tire change?

you add them through the valve stem. You have to use a different shrader valve after though. One that has a filter or something like that. They sell them on the site the sells the dyna beads

Dyna Beads

Dyna Beads are ceramic beads that are used to dynamically balance your tire.
They are added through your valve stem and the your original valve stem is reused.
Here is the web page that explains there use.

Thanks for the website. Looked this stuff up and, while I'm not sure of the physics behind it, I can see how it might work better than static weights on the outside of your rim. However, I don't think this system won't work with the Ride-On Tire Protector system. Now I'll have to choose between perfectly balanced tires and puncture protected tires. My guess is the puncture protection will win out. Safety trumps comfort!

Hey rubyrick, you don`t really have to choose one or the other. The Ride-On sealant acts to balance your tires too. It`s a two for one deal. Ride-On.

Had my new tires balanced and after a few hundred miles added Ride-On. If there was any vibration before the Ride-On, it's gone now. Never had any vibration during the first few miles with Ride-On as they mention may occur. It being warm when I added it may have had something to do with no initial vibration.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

I know several people (choppers & sport bikes) who've tried them and most of those people say they really like them and they work well up to, and at high speeds. It sounds like they work well if you put in the correct amount per tire.

OlHoss, this makes sense to me because the same principle that works for the Dyna Beads rotating around inside your tire would work for the liquid Ride-On inside your tire, as long as Ride-On remains a liquid.
