Notes:

  • Balancing beads are designed for use on trucks with a minimum of a 1/2-ton suspension. Do not use these beads on passenger cars or SUVs.
  • If your tire has internal TPMS sensors, you will need to break down the tire to install these beads.

How Counteract Tire Balancing Works

Once your tire begins to roll, the beads will get distributed around its interior thanks to centrifugal force. As the wheel continues to spin, the heavy spot in your unbalanced tire will pull up and down on your vehicle's suspension. This will cause the beads to shift in the opposite direction of that pull. The beads will continue to migrate until there are enough of them on the opposite side of the heavy spot to balance your tire.

Video Transcript for Review of Counteract Tire Balancing Beads - CA44FR

Hello, everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Counteract single six ounce bag of tire balancing beads. Now, these counteract balancing beads are an economical way to balance your tire and wheel assembly for the lifetime of the tire. And these beads are designed to install inside your tire. I wanna zoom in and show you the bag you'll receive. It includes the, when you get this bag, what you'll do is tear the top off and you'll be able to access it.

And then on the inside, let me just dump out what you'll get. You'll get the six ounce bag of balancing beads. You'll get this vortex valve core, and then you'll get this self-sealing valve cap. Now these beads are made of coated glass spheres. The balancing beads will not cause damage to the inner liner of your tire, and they will clump regardless of excess moisture.

And they are TPMS compatible. They are environmentally friendly construction. They are reusable and recyclable, but basically how these counteract beads tire balancing work, let me just zoom in to show you. Basically, if you look at that insert there, you'll see that once your tire begins to roll, the bag will break open and the beads will get distributed around its interior, thanks to centrifugal force. And as that wheel continues to spin, the heavy spot on your unbalanced tire will pull up and down on your vehicle suspension.

And this will cause the beads to shift in the opposite direction of that pull. The beads will continue to migrate until you'll see that there's enough of them on the opposite side of the heavy spot of the tire to balance out that tire. These balancing beads continuously and automatically readjust the balance of your trailer, truck or off-road tire. It'll reduce vibration and ensures even ware to increase life for your tire, helps even improve the fuel economy. Now they are a very easy installation.

Basically you'll just throw this bag here into the tire. When it's removed from the wheel, or inject beads into the valve stem. The beads will remain inside the tire. They don't come loose to contaminate the environment and they'll not cause any damage to your wheels. Now, one note I do wanna mention, if you're tired does have internal TPMS sensors, you will need to break down the tire to install these beads. Application for this six ounce bag here, is 15 inch to 16 inch trailer tires, 15 inch to 22 inch truck tires and 15 inch to 16 1/2 inch off-road tires. But what you'll wanna do is to order the correct amount of beads for your application. What you wanna do is get the size of the tire from the sidewall of your trailer or your vehicle, and then match it to the tire sizes that are listed on the product page for that size bag of beads. This is a six ounce bag and on the product page it'll list the sizes that fits on. They do make it in other sizes, four ounce, eight ounce, all the way up to about 20 ounce bags, and it'll list on each product page, what tires they fit on. Now, in order to reduce the possibility of valve leaks, they do include this counteract valve core right here, and this metal valve cap. And they all recommend it in place of the original valve core and cap. And they are included in every bag of the counteract beads. As we mentioned, these beads are TPMS compatible. They are made in the USA, and it is for a quantity of one bag of beads for one tire. But that should do it for the review on the Counteract single six ounce bag of Tire Balancing Beads..

I love them. Went on a trip from Buffalo, N.Y. To Branson, Missouri and the ride was as smooth as could be. No vibration at all at speeds up to 90 miles an hour..
I definitely will use them again.



by:

Counter Act balance beads are an excellent product, I have used them in my motorcycle tires for years. This is the first time I have ordered a set for truck tires.



by:

Counteract beads are a great product. Works past my expectations. Plus you don't see the wheels weights. Much cleaner look. Thanks Etrailer



by:

Balance beads do not work in jeep wheels! I even called the manufacturer to make sure I was using the correct amount for my application.



by:

I have a 1970 VW van with 14" wheels that most shops can't balance because they lack the adapter ring to fit the wheels. Looking for options I found Tire Balancing Beads, with this kit being the best option for me, providing not just the beads in correctly sized pouches for each tire, but all the tools necessary to install them. That process was super easy. This low-tech solution was perfect and the beauty is, the beads last for the lifetime of the tire -- no worry about weights falling off. The price for the full kit was less than bead-only costs from most other retailers.



by:

Works as advertised



by:

This system did not work on my gmc retain or series pickup. The fire monitor in the valve stem seems to impede the head flow. Wish that was mentioned in description. Now I'm stuck with an expensive tool that does not meet my needs.



by:

I have used balance beads in many kinds of tires (trailer,truck,car,van) and always get way more miles and better wear from my tires . Highly recommend !!!



by:

Good tires for price, used on car dolly, exact replacement, no issues at all so far



by:

Super fast shipping - same day. Definitely recommend this site for the best prices and expertise on the products they sell.



by:

I use them on every tire I change!



by:

Excellent tool! We use this often to install bead balancing on preassembled tires on trailers and trucks. It does have a learning curve (cant feed it too fast) but once you figure it out, it is perfect for the job. Just ordered a replacement in Aug '22, the replacement came preassembled and the hoses were backwards, a simple fix.



by:

WARNING on the packaging on these - each outer bag contains an inner bag of beads + a valve stem + a valve cap + a valve extension. The valve parts are just loose inside the outer bag. Problem is, it wasn't clear that the valve parts are even included with the product, and on 3 of the 4 I received, the inner bag was broken. The inner bag was broken on the first one I opened, so not knowing any better, I just dumped the whole thing in the tire and sealed it up, not realizing I had sealed up valve parts in my tires! The second one I opened had in intact inner bag, so I realized my mistake. I had to break the bead on the first tire to get the valve parts out! I haven't driven on them yet, so not sure how well they work, but thought folks she be forewarned about the packaging issue.
