Balancing your wheels

Postby littlebeaver » Thu Jul 07, 2011 8:24 pm



Hello guys and gals, lots of folks are using these dyna beads in there tires, I'm sure they are great too.. If WingAdmin. says they work good I believe him.. Now if you are old school like me and use the stick on weights, while using a wheel balancer, here is a trick I do and I have never lost a weight yet, as you know there is a sticky side to the weights, instructions say to clean up the surface on the rim with alcohol or some kid of cleaner first before sticking the weight on, My trick is to put a little contact cement down on the rim first and let it dry then put that weight on it, those two glues contact and they stay together for good...Hope this helps someone...Don't go get all messy it doesn't take much cement..Or get you some dyna beads..ha ha
