Default Dyna beads

Ive put about 500 miles on the new Bridgestone 850/851 with dyna beads...1 ounce in frt and 2 in back..I have to say I was very skeptical about the theory and ability of the beads to do what they said they would..I found this video on dyna beads..


It helped push me over the edge and try them.. Well Im glad to say they work and they work fine..My KP rides better than it ever did..and I have to say the smoothness of my tires at highway speeds seems to make my vision or buffeting issue not as bad..I dont know if its in my head or if it really made a difference.,either way Im sold on these dynabeads..

It's not your imagination they work great. I have been running them for a few years. the ONLY down side I have found is that you have to put new ones in when you change tires. The UPSIDE, is you don't chane tires near as often. You will have zero cupping on your tires, they will simply wear out, but they will wear out evenly.

I've been running them in my rear CT 16,000 miles no problems yet. The tire is still looking fine too. I've been running them in my front E3 7,500 miles, also no problems.

I have tired both dyna beads and ride on. I'll tell ya ride on is the way to go. Not only does it do a better job of balancing your tire but its a sealant too in case you hit a nail. I have been fortunate not to need the sealing properties but its nice to now its there.

So do you have any real data that proves ride on works better? Or is this just your oppinion?

For those with several years of experience using Dyna Beads, have you found any internal tire wear from the beads rubbing against the tire or the beads causing a sandblasting effect on hub portion of the wheels?

I ask this because a motorcycle tire shop in my area showed me a used tire that had been balanced with Dyna Beads and the inside of the tire was worn away enough to have a significant amount of rubber particles mixed in with the beads. They also mentioned but didn't show me the sandblasting effect of the wheel hub.

you might get me to believe that the inside of the tire would get some tiny wear from those tiny beads but I would call it pecker tracks instead of wear and as for sandblasting the rim...they never touch the rim inside they are always--> due to centrifugal force against the rubber...sounds like BS to me..

You don't have to change the beads when you change the tires, just use an envelope, put inside of the tire and roll it walaaaa beads in envelope. Then put them in new tire.
