    I have used them and had no problems. Makes sense to because often the stick on weight will fall off or it ruins the look of your custom wheel. Most of the others will disagree and recommend a conventional wheel balance. Price wise is about the same.

    To my surprise I had and Indy put them in my rear tire once when they mounted a tire for me instead of doing a computer spin balance. Seems to work as I have not noticed any problems and I am about to replace that tire again and am planning on using them again.

    If it works as good as the video, I have no doubt this will change the way we do tires in the future

    I have also noticed that when I do balance a tire you won't notice 1 oz out of balance. Also I find that most tires are out less then an ounce.

    Not being formally educated, I don't know the laws (?) that are in effect with Dyna beads. I think it's the same law (?) that my washing machine uses when it goes into spin cycle, so it must work. :bigsmiley21:
    I'm gonna try them with my next new tire.

    Hey guys did you mount your own tires when using this or more specifically was any liquid based soap solutions used on the bead? I emailed the bead people quite a while back and asked them all about the beads. They said the only draw back was moisture in the tire causing the beads to stick together. They said not to use too much liquid lube installing the tire.

    I've also heard that that waiting a few days after installing the tire would dry it out. But seems to me the tire is a sealed unit (unless you let the air out and then re-air it back up, that would work). But anyhow just would like your input on this since I have often thought of trying these.

    If you are running tubes in the tire the moisture problem should not come into play as you pour the beads in thru the valve stem when using tubes.
