Bitchin, something else to buy for all the cars!
Can you run them in tubes that have slime sealer?

Can't help wonder if they're legal in racing? Racers are always looking for a "free edge". Wonder if a crap load of them would help balance out a rear sprint Car tire thrown off balance by mud, or an asphalt tire that had a flat spot from a slide?

How would Coker tire feel about these in tires that have a road hazard warranty?

I wonder how the DynaBeads compare to shotgun pellets?

I read that the dyna beads are ceramic and wont rust or corrode.

I just ordered some for my '35 straight wires with Cokers that shake like a bitch above 60mph.

Hoping they'll make a difference..

Big rigs use beads or shot bags in their tires. No issues. Ask a trucker they always have opinions

The bigger the tire the more beads needed. I've heard that golf balls have been used in big 4 x 4 tires.

Yup! But what a pain in the butt to get thru the valve stem!

I'm gonna try the Air-soft pellets in my OT rig. I'll break down one side of the tubeless tires.

we would use prepackaged sandbags from the local 4x4 store. i had 44 inch tires, they would put about 4 small bags in and they would open on their own. it worked great!

Done more than my share of semi tires over the years, some truckers use golf balls in big rig tires, they also use a granular product called Equal that is supposed to balance tires. The equal can make flat repairs more difficult and I've seen it cause flat tires if grit finds its way into the valve core when checking tire pressures.

Personally I like dynamic balancing on the vehicle because it will compensate for unbalanced hubs, drums, etc...

I had a Paystar 5000 truck with big floatation tires on it that would rattle your teeth. The local truck tire guy used some type of shit in them and the vibration/shake went away right now! Must have been something similar

I have never even heard of doing this but have a vibration at about 50 I would like to get rid of.
Shit, if all the cool guys are doing it, I might as well do it too.

I've got some of those stashed away in the shop rafters.

I bought some Dyna Beads and installed them in my 235X15s on my '51 Chevy pickup. Didn't change a thing below 35, but that's the way they work... The tire isn't rotating fast enough to allow them to be effective. No big deal to me.... Above that speed they work great.

I'm gonna try them in the bias ply's on my model A.

Thanks Ryan. I had 1934 Ford Coupe w/ byply tires on 35 rims between 50 and 60 had bad frontend in vibration. I read your post on beads. I put about 5oz in both front tires and took the car down the road the vibration in gone between 50 and 60. There is small vibration at 65. I plan on put some in the rear tires and 2oz in the front tires in the future The biggest proble is getting all those bead throught valve stem. Thanks again this post save me time and money.

Its like putting bags of calcium in big truck tires or tractor tires...they naturally find the spot on the tire that needs balancing by centrifugal motion it well throw them to the unbalanced side of the tire
