Re: Balance Beads

Yeah 15x10's are not good for 4-wheeling, but what tires are those?

I've never heard of that method before. I will definitely use that for now on.

Re: Balance Beads

I am going to do an alignment on it today and see if that helps. I've noticed that side walls are very soft and when they vibrate they do from sided to side instead of up and down

I tried it when doing my 35's on the 10" rims -- still needed the 2nd air blaster

The ratchet strap is a good method for a stubborn bead and not enough air but those 10" wide rims are "special" for sure

Awesome, glad to help!

BTW, you ARE removing the valve core before seating the bead, right? LOTS more volume that way. And you need a good source of air, lots of capacity. CO2 tank works well too.

All the more reason to run 8" wide wheels. Better bead retention, too!

Re: Balance Beads

So I did my alignment last night and the toe was off -.30. I fixed that and it rides much better. Didn't think little would cause that much.

I certainly agree -- I am very hesitant to air those tire down offroad -- The suburban isn't much of an offroad vehicle anyway, here on the east coast, the burb might as well be a school bus in the woods -- it seems to get bigger on the trail

Must be a Yugo dealership if they’re letting you use combustion to set a bead.

Re: Balance Beads

So the beads I have in it now aren't working in the rear so I'm going to try airsoft pellets and more of them. I'm going to try about 14oz in each tire and see how that goes. I'll be using the .2g pellets.
