Dyna Beads Tire Balancing

I don't remember how I came across this site. They have these beads that you put inside your tire and when its turning it uses centrifical force to find the light spot and move there. Instead of using weights. Has anybody used these?
Here is the website.

I know some guys who love 'em and out them in every bike they own. Haven't tried them myself but have been considering it, or more specifically, trying to remember to buy them and try them.
(I posted a thread about these about a month and a half ago, and then decided to remove it, maybe you saw it then)

Think about it. If it sounds too good to be true, then....... I sold tires for over 10 years and never found one of these products worth mentioning. You also have to worry about the tire manufacturers warranty if it fails with this stuff in it. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah the to good to be true thing is why I ask. It makes sense in theory. Sounds like a less messy version of Ride-on. I wouldn't worry too much about these failing and voiding warranties, since they are a solid ceramic bead.

Yes, they actualy do work, but everyone I know uses Ride-On instead. Does the same thing AND protects your tires from punctures.....
so a no brainer there.....



edit: Ooops, sorry , I should add that the beads are NOT a substitue for normal wheel balanceing, this should be done before using either product. The advantage being that both the beads and Ride-On "fine tune" the balance, and help maintain it as the tire wears. But still all votes go to Ride-On instead of the beads......

Yes i have used the PJ1 balancer. It is very good and does not stick to the rim. I cant speak for the chemical that you are asking about, only the technology that a lot of car racers ant trucks are now using.
I have heard that the trucker are using the bead type.

The guys I know use them on sport bikes, and choppers because they don't want anything stuck on a rim....

You'd probably need to take the plunge and try it and decide for yourself...

The type that truckers use don't go inside the tire. The beads are inside a round tube that is mounted on the wheel studs. It goes on before the tire.

There may be some that go in the tire.
Years back we used to pour anti-freeze in the front tires of trucks for balance. Anti-freeze so that it would not freeze in winter.
