balancing tires.......LOOK HERE!!!!!

i am having problems keeping stick on weights on my wheels. i was at the Mid-America Truck Show in Louisville, KY this weekend and talked to a guy, Rob, at the Dyna Beads booth. i will be ordering their product this week to balance my tires. They use small ceramic beads inside the tire to balance it. With the beads you NEVER have to balance the tire again!! The beads balance it different as the tire wears. they guarantee it to balance 100x better than any spin balance. They have had customers install the beads, and the tire was still out of balance. so they took it back to the dealer were they bought the tire and come to find out it was a defective tire. they have products for anything from a stock pickup tire all the way up to a semi tire. you can either install them through the valve stem, with a special stem core, or just put them inside the tire as you mount the tire. they are ceramic so they wont rust, or eat away at the inside lining or the tire. you can use the same beads multiple seats of tires....wear a set out, take out he beads and install them in another set. their webpage, Dyna Beads, has a tire chart for the amount of bead weight, in ounces, that each tire size needs. Rob told me that even if you put in more weight than the tire size needs, it is perfectly ok. the beads will distribute themselves throught the tire to balance it. They also recommend using Nitrogen instead of air inside a tire. He told me with nitrogen, you dont lose air pressure, and the tire doesn't run as hot...which will get more tread life out of a tire. OH YEA.....THEY REPLACE HAMMER ON OR STICK ON WEIGHTS WHICH DAMAGE YOUR WHEELS!!!!

check them out for you guys who have the same problem i have keeping weights on. I am ordering them tomorrow, so i will write up a review of their product.

It so works.
Bills truck rides a lot smoother with 35 M/T compaired to my 33 A/T

Also talkin to my friend who works at bell tire, he says he has never had an unsatisified costumer with it.
I will be using that in my tires when i go bigger, or when i have time to get them in my 33's

The beads are small enough to fit into the valve stem. Jack the truck up, and remove the valve CORE. Insert the beads into the tire through the valve STEM. Reinsert the valve CORE. Air tires to your specs. Repeat for other tires.

FYI-I prefer to take the weight off the tire before flattening it(hence, jacking it up), it lowers the odds on breaking the bead on the tire...

If you use equal you have to use a special filtered valve core of they will come out when
you lower air pressure. (or so I heard)

I have lowered air pressure with no concerns up to this point.

the bb's will rust and clump together defeating the purpose of the balancing beads. they will also cause oxidation on the inner wheel like a hammer on weight does on the outter part of the wheel.

I have used this product in the past and currently use it in most of my vehicles. This stuff work very well. The unly downfall that I found is if you use lower profile tires. I tried it on a set of 35 series tires and it was not very effective. On the regular say70 or 75 series tires, this stuff is excellent. The bigger the tire, the better it works. It's perfect for the bigger mud tires and tires of that type that everyone seems to favor these days even though most of them never leave the pavement! Wheather anyone decides to get this product or not, I would recommend using nitrogen in all your tires in place of compressed air. You may be suprised that your tires last much longer and you will have no corrosion whatsoever on your rims that the moisture from compressed air causes. Nitrogen is also much more consistant with temp changes.
