Re: Balance Beads

I'm pleased to hear it seems to be working for you. I have taken to static balance with a bubble balancer to do the lion's share of the work, with a Centramatic balancer installed to do the rest, actively. Works exceptionally well, with the problem that the average tire shop guy is too ****ing stupid to understand it and will screw it up if tbey are allowed access. This is why I do my own work, though.

With me looking to go to beadlocks, static balance may be out of the question, so I will likely return to BBs in the tire for most of tbe work.

Re: Balance Beads

Be careful using BBs in beadlocks...some wheel makers recommend NOT using them, especially on those that use an inner sleeve for double locks.

Something about the BBs getting caught inside the sleeve (between the sleeve and rim vice sleeve and tire) and actually making the problem worse.

Re: Balance Beads

That won't be a concern. I'm the maker.

Re: Balance Beads

I do wish someone made a HMMWV style, 3-piece lock, in a size other than 16.5, however.
