Counteract Tire Balancing Kit 4.1 5 17 17
Easy Balancing After I ordered a new set of tires on revzilla and had them mounted locally for $25 each, I ran them for a few days with the stock weights on the wheels. They obviously needed balancing. I ordered this kit and it made a world of difference. Its easy to install with some patience. The beads will backup in the stem just squeeze the bottle repeatedly. It will suck them back and allow more to fall in the rim. Takes a few minutes but well worth it! October 26, 2015
Cheap effective wheel balancing Saves cost/trouble of having someone balance the wheel. reduces risk of out of balance tires if weights are lost. Easy to install in tube. No issues at all. Work great. June 29, 2015
yes, they work I was a skeptic but now I'm believer. these balance beads really do work. The reviews say installation is tricky, however I did not have issues. When installing the tube will get clogged with the beads, but if you take a screwdriver or wrench and tap the tube you will loosen the clog and they will begin flowing normally again. It does take a lot of tapping. you can pay somebody else to change tires or you can do it yourself. February 11, 2015
Nice Cant tellz if its balancing my wheel but da wheel doc said my front wheel is oval so when i ride its likie a bucking bronco no matt a what so your boi be ridin da streez smoof February 2, 2015
Tricky to get in the tire, but seem to work once in... Bought these beads to balance a set of Heidenau K60s on my Suzuki V-Strom. It was my first time changing tires on my own. So the beads seem to work well, tire has stayed balanced from zero to eighty or so mph. So the balancing job seems to work. Getting the beads in the tires is the trick. I'd recommend doing it with the tires off the bike. The instructions recommend some sort of vibration source to help the beads flow into the tire. I'd agree with that. I eventually got them in there, but I was using a manual vibration, tapping the tube. I'm not sure, but I'd used soapy water for my lubricant to mount the tires...that might have kept the beads from moving as readily as they might have without moisture. Over all, at this point I am happy. Of course in a few thousand? Well, we'll see! November 17, 2014
You can't see em, but they're working I used the beads to avoid having to balance my Karoo 3s and possibly rebalancing then as they wore down. After 3000 mi. the balance is still good, the only vibration i get through the bike is due to the luggy tires, and zero "cupping" on the front. The trick to the beads is a clean inner tire and rim so they can roll around unhindered. If you or your tire guys fling that sticky/thick mounting compound into the tire as they/you apply it every single one of the beads will stick to it and make your tire out of balance. That is why I did it my self using a dish soap/water solution, I found something that might work even better, but, sense I haven't tried it yet I can't endorse it. Oh ya, tire sealants and sticky glued in plugs are out of the question, the Stop & go tubeless tire plugs should work fine, as they use no glue. September 30, 2014
It just works I was pleasantly surprised when I removed the old front tire to find the previous owner had also used these beads. With the tire on & bead set, it was pretty easy to get them in through the valve stem - just be patient & follow the instructions. September 18, 2014
They get the job done, just don't spill them. They work as advertised. I added them with a new set of tires. I no longer have any vibration when at or above highway speeds. Just be careful with them, I spilled about an ounce of them when opening one of the baggies. They go everywhere with no resistance, and are super slippery on a garage floor. I managed to collect most of them with some masking tape and a shop-vac. Kind of hoping I won't have any issues with them spilling out on the next tire change in a year or two. September 15, 2014

Anderson F: I chose this tire balancing kit because it's an easy way to balance tires without having to add external weights to the rim. The kit even includes: a valve core remover, 2x spare valve cores, and 2x valve caps. There is a variety of kits to choose from that vary in the number of balancing beads they'll give you which depends on the size of the tires (there is a chart in the "product details"). Apr 26, 2015
Mark O: Already use it. good product. Apr 9, 2015
Tim N: By using this method I don't have to rely on the dealer or a bike shop to mount and balance I can do it myself. The other advantage is even over time it will balance with the wear of the tire. Apr 9, 2015

Hao D asked: Has anyone attempted to insert these through a 90 degree valve stem? Mar 19, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Paul R: Yes. I tried it on a Ducati Multistrada and it didn't work. The little beads stopped up the valve stem and would not flow through into the tire. I had to dismount the tire and lay the beads inside, then remount it. Once inside they worked spectacularly.. Mar 20, 2015
Reply to Paul Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Jim C: I have a 90 on the rear of my sportster and didn't have a problem. Just angling the hose above the stem and repeatedly squeezing the bottle worked fine for me. It might have been slower than the front which is a straight stem but I had no issues. Oct 27, 2015
Reply to Jim Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Stephen T: Yes, I did. I moved the tire so that the stem was at a 4 to 5 o'clock position and used a dremel so it created enough vibration to keep them moving in. It took a while though, ~20 minutes a tire if I remember right.... Mar 19, 2015
