Knifemaker Never saw a good reason to use the dynabeads when you could use Ride On and not only have it balance your tire , but have the puncture protection too.

The only advantage I could see is if you change tires alot, it might be possible to remove the dynabeads and reuse them in the new tire....something I would not want to try with Ride On. But given that extra advantage of keeping your tire from going flat on you ...Ride On wins the battle for me.
I would not own a bike anymore without having Ride On in my tires , or perhaps the Rhino Tire treated tire instead.

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.

6204 ive put steel BB gun pellets in my Jeep, they work well.

750Doug 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.

flitecontrol 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.

My guess is the puncture protection will win out. Safety trumps comfort!

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.

Jace Bror 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

rubyrick 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?
