Continuously balance your tires as you ride?

Has anyone seen these?

Quote:
Wheel weights have been around for many years, but are no longer the best solution for today's high-mileage premium tires and expensive alloy rims. We want you to get the manufacturers full mileage estimate for your tires, and to possibly even exceed this mileage by using our products.


The way we do this is by offering a Dynamic Balancing Solution, a high-density ceramic bead that, when easily installed, continuously balances your tires as you drive. The amount of material will distribute itself in weight and position dependant on the balance requirements of the individual tire.

The result is a smooth, vibration-free ride, derived from our balancing media that is always repositioning itself as the tire wears. If you own a pickup truck, commercial truck, motorhome, RV, tractor trailer, motorcycle, or similar vehicle, and want to get rid of those wheel weights, wheel vibration and tire cupping problems, then you need to move up to Dyna BeadsŪ!

Back in the 70's, I used to buy a tire sealer and balancer that looked like chocolate milk. You put it in your tube and it was supposed to seal your tire and balance it as you rode...

I found the link Click

I use this product and will testify that it works. It has made major increases in mileage of tires.

Why would you want to add unnecessary weight to your motorcycle's wheels? It would increase the gyroscopic effect making it harder to turn-in on corners. I could see doing it on OTR trucks where they wouldn't even notice a few hundred pounds but not on a motorcycle where a couple of pounds of rotating mass could make a big difference.

Just my $.02

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

I like the concept though that is bad ass.. constantly rebalancing.. how precise is a wheel weight that is made out of metal and put there new? what about when the tire wears, etc.? only makes sense.. I am going to look into this over the winter.. of course what larry says, as always, holds weight because i asked about adding tire slime one time for my Yam and they said no ahh ahh as it adds too much weight and is not advised on a sportbike..

MP...if you do the 520 conversion and this it might be a rotational mass wash... one cancels out the other? MAYBE!

I remember seeing those beaded weight balancers in J.C Whitney catalogs from the 70's. The ring looked a lot bigger and could probably hold a lot of beads. You could see if they still have them.

I won't be adding beads to my wheels...seems like too much trouble...how do you know how many beads to add to make the wheel balanced? I'd hate to keep adding beads, mount/dismount/mount/dismount....seems like a P.I.T.A. i'd rather just get it done right the first time.

Anyone ever hear the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" ?

I've personally static balanced every tire I've used for the last five years, applying stick-on weights, and have never had a balance problem.

product looks like overkill for a bike. Smaller weights, and a wheel integral hoop or loop running along the centerline of the rim... mabye do-able.

I've never had a problem with a balancing stand and stick-on weights either. Besides, if it's good enough for a 200hp/mph superbike it's good enough for the street.

I have averaged over 30,000 mile increase on steer tires. I haven't caudated it for the drive tires yet. Still on the same set. They are pushing 200,000+ and just now considering replacement. They have paid for them selves in just the increase on the steer tires. I have the tires rotated and balanced every 20,000. Since I installed the Centramatics. The tires have not required any weight to balance. Before, they always used an average of 4 to 10 oz's or more. That alone, just for ride quality makes them worth the money.
$900 a set for the Pete.
$199 for the pick up.
I will order a set for the P/U when I get the new tires for the winter.
If they work as well on the P/U as the Pete. They will pay for them selves in the first set. + with a 3/4 ton truck. I need all the help with ride quality as possible.
