Balancing a Trailer Tire with Weights or Beads


I have a Triton atv128 3 place atv trailer with ST145R12 tires. I cannot find any info on your site about balancing them with beads or bbs inside. is this an acceptable practice and do you sell or have info on this?


Expert Reply:

You can use beads or weights to balance your tires if desired, but you will need to use a pin plate adapter to do so with trailer tires. Because of the design of trailer tires, the need for specific balancing is not the same as vehicle tires.

Most trailer tires are simply balances by matching the high heavy spot to the tire with the low light spot on the wheel. All of the combinations we carry are balanced in that manner so you can simply install them and get on the road.

I've attached an article to help.
