I've had them in for over a year, several thousand miles, and I love them. Still solid and smooth, tires are wearing perfectly, no cupping.

I like them so much in fact, that I just put them in my truck. My truck's tires seem to go out of balance every few months, and it's annoying as hell. I had quite a vibration going on at above 60 mph, it really needed to be rebalanced, so I decided to pull ALL of the weights off the wheels and put Dynabeads in there instead, to see if it would work. And it did: instant smoothness, vibration is gone. I'm sold on them.

I put a new set of rubber on this spring. I went for a ride with no balancing to test the effect,fairly smooth. Installed the Dynabeads and went for the same ride an hour after the first test ride.What a HUGE difference,now smooth as the road will allow.I am sold on Dynabeads and would recommend them to anybody.

I'm not familiar with these. --How do they work? --How easy to install?

Simple IS better, almost always. This technique is just fascinating...

Here is another option that many believe in.

WOW...really easy! Thanks for sending that link.

I just took my "new" 84 'Cade out for a "shakedown cruise" and found a few "squawks", but tire vibration wasn't one of them. The tires are brand new and currently in balance--but I like the idea of keeping the wheel weights inside the tire where they can't fall off. I just might replace the wheel weights with Dynabeads while these tires are still new...

Again, thanks!

so if you are to place in two ounces into a bike tire, How much did you put in your truck tire..?? and I thought I was a nut... :shock: It really worked? well you said it did so I guess it did.. :lol: Cool I use one of those old school balancer's and lead weights to balance our auto tires..Works great..Bubble balancer..

I have dyna beads in my 02 wing and love them but I also filled tire with nitorgin works really well. I put them in my car and the shop air must have had moisture in it because the beads clumped up worked against me I had to brake tire back down and take them out.. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE GOOD DRY AIR !!!!! they work fine... Sally

Sally happy 4th... I have never heard of using anything but air in tires, what are the benifits of using Nitrogin?

Nitrogen for filling tires is a sure way to make sure you are not adding any moisture to the inside of you tires. They say straight nitrogen expands less than air when heated.In the real world I dont think it really makes enough of a difference to warrant the extra hassel/expense to run straight nitrogen, I use a mix of 78% nitrogen,21% oxygen and 1% other trace gasses.I have been using this mixture since I was a kid and it has NEVER failed me. ;)

There is a product out there called Ride On which purports to be a cross between Slime and Dynabeads. I haven't tried it myself, but I'd love to hear if anyone else has experience with it.

Incidentally, using nitrogen with this type of balancing product would be very helpful in a wet climate since it reduces the moisture pumped into the tire, and so resolves the problems of the beads clumping up. Not so necessary around my neck of the woods though, since it's a dry heat here ;)

One other product I have found is Stop'n'Go which is a tire plugging kit designed for motorcycles. I have had one of these plugs in the back tire of my ST1100 for over 750 miles (the tire had less than 500 miles on it when it picked up the nail) and shows no signs of losing pressure or stability. I have a friend with an 81 Wing that is coming up on 2k miles with a plug in the tire.

Hope that helps someone!

5 oz per tire for my truck, that was per their web site. Seems to be the right amount.
