Notes:

  • Balancing beads are designed for use on trailers 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.

To tell you the truth I have not used them yet. I get mixed feelings and comments from people that this can't really work so why put it in your tires. I'm still thinking of trying it.

    The Kenda Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Tire w/ 14" Series T09 Aluminum Wheel # AM34659 does not come balanced. Trailer tires do not require balancing like vehicle wheels and tires since their primary function is weight supporting.

    The Westlake ST175/80R13 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 13" Silver Mod Wheel # LHAW165 does not come balanced from the manufacturer. First trailer tires do not require balancing as their main purpose is supporting weight and they do not have steering components that need the tires balanced.

    Tire balancing is not required for our wheel and tire packages like the Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum Wheel # AM31208. Since trailer tires are designed for supporting heavy loads rather than providing a comfortable ride and traction like on cars they do not have to be balanced.

    The Kenda Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire with 14" Black Mod Wheel # AM32131 is not balanced. Since this is a trailer tire it doesn't need to be balanced for proper performance. The purpose of the wheel and tire is supporting the load of the trailer, so you don't have to worry about a smooth ride for passengers. You can balance them with something like the # CA83VR if you wish, but it is not necessary.

    The Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire with 14" White Wheel # AM32153 does not come balanced as it is not as important to balance trailer tires like you balance car tires. Their primary job is to support heavy loads and not providing a smooth comfortable ride like in a passenger vehicle.

  • Correctly Rated 225/75-15 Trailer Tires For 7,000 lb Tandem Axle Trailer
    Okay, let's start real quick with if you should have different load rated tires on your tandem axle trailer - you can, but it isn't advisable as they will wear differently, or you'd need to keep a real close eye on the psi of each tire to make sure it's exactly the same. As for the rest of your questions, I'll take them one by one. 1) While we don't have Eagle tires so I can't comment on their viability, your friend is 100 percent right, load range F 225/75-15 tires are absolutely overkill...
