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 - 2-Axle Trailers - Pickup Trucks - CA83FR

Hello, everybody, this is Jeff with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the counteract four pack kit of three ounce bags of tire balancing beads for tandem axle trailers and half ton trucks. Now these counteract balancing beads are the economical way to balance your tire wheel, some ways for the lifetime of your tires. And these beads are designed to install inside the tires. Now, I want to zoom in so you get a close look here. Well basically, the bag you'll receive will be like this.

And then you just tear off the top, which I've already done. And then what you'll do is dump out the bag, and we'll go through all these parts here. We'll talk about 'em Basically, it will come with the four, three-ounce bags of balancing beads you can see right here. It comes with the four vortex valve cores. The four self-sealing valve caps.

Right here, it comes with a valve core remover. In other words, this end you can use as a valve core remover, this end's a screwdriver. Comes with the injector bottle, and the tube. Now the beads themselves, they're made of a coated glass sphere. These are balancing beads.

They will not cause any damage to the inner line area of your tire, and they won't clump up regardless of any excess moisture, and they are also TPMS compatible. These are environmentally friendly construction. They are reusable and recyclable. And how the tire balancing beads work, let me just put an insert up there to show you. But basically what happens is once your tire begins to roll, these bags, there's one in each tire, they will break open and the beads will get distributed around the interior of the tire, thanks to Centrifugal force.

And as that wheel continues to spin the heavy spot in the 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 pole. So the beads will continue to migrate Until, there's enough of them on the opposite side of the heavy spot of the tire to balance out your tire. And these tire balancing beads will continuously and automatically re-adjust the balance of the truck with off-road tires. They will reduce vibration and ensure even wear to help increase the life of your tire and even improves the fuel economy. Now, these are a very easy installation. All you need to do is just throw the, one, one of these bags into each tire. And then, after the tire is removed from the wheel, then you'll just throw these on the inside or the other way is you can inject them into the valve stem, using this included bottle with this tube right here, the beads will remain inside the tires. They won't come loose to contaminate the environment and they will not cause any damage to your wheels. One note I do want to mention to you is that, if your tire does have internal TPMS sensors, you will need to break down the tire to install these beads. Application again is for three ounce bags and they are designed to work with tandem axle trailers and light duty trucks. How to order the correct amount of beads needed for your application You will get the size of the tires from the sidewall on the trailer of that vehicle, and then match it to the tire sizes that are listed on the product page for that size bag of beads. We mentioned this bag, you can see is three ounce bags. They do sell different sizes, four ounce, five ounce, all the way up to 20 ounce bags. For what you wanna do is, when you go to our website under the part number for that particular size of bag it'll list all the tires this will work for. Now, in order to reduce the possibility of any valve leaks, they do recommend to use these counteract valve cores and the metal valve caps. They are recommended in place of the original valve core and cap. And as you can see, they are included in every bag of counteract beads. These parts are made in the USA. And it is for quantity of four bag, four three ounce bags of beads for four tires. But that should do it for the review on the counteract four pack kit of three ounce bags of tire balancing beads for your tandem axle trailers or half ton trucks..

Designed for 14" - 22" truck tires, this DIY kit includes everything you need to install balancing beads to improve fuel economy and increase the life of your tires. Beads easily inject into valve stem.

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.

Tire Balancing Beads were the perfect solution for me. A year after installation, Ive had no problems whatsoever. The tires are wearing evenly and I detect no wobbles or shakes that indicate the tire is out of wack. I recommend them to anyone with a classic car with wheels that dont fit standard tire-balancing equipment. The best thing is that you can do this yourself as long as you know how to put on a tire, no mechanic is needed.

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:

Counteract Tire balancing beads is a excellent product. Can't say enough on how good it works! No more losing weight, especially the stick on type. Beads reside inside tire and works great. Package arrived and packaged well. Thanks ETrailer!!



by:

Counteract beads are the way to go for me. Great product. Plus you don't see wheel weights on outside of wheel. Thankyou 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:

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.



by:

Very easy to use. Cannot rush the installing of the beads through the valve stem.As they will log jam up. Slow and stead fill with positioning the valve stem at the bottom of the wheel. Not sure if this would work well with TPMS wheel sensors. Would probably be better to have the tires broken of their beads by a automotive shop and put in that way.



by:

Everything was A’s order

  • Taskmaster Radial Tire with M Speed Rating
    The tire you were looking at the Taskmaster 5.30R12 Radial Trailer Tire item # TT53012C is the only 12" tire we have with an M speed rating. We do not have any tire wheel combos that will give you a speed rating of M in the 12" size. Our tire wheel combos do not come balanced and most trailer tires do not because they are not required to be. I have linked our selection of 12" 5 on 4 1/2" lug nut pattern wheels. We do sell a balancing kit it is the Counteract Tire Balancing Beads for Tandem...
