What Are Balancing Beads?

Tire balancing beads are small tempered glass spheres added to the tire and wheel assembly. The beads are evenly distributed around the tire when the proper amount is added. These rotate with the wheel and help keep it in balance, like lead weights that have been used for years.

Installing Your Tire Balancing Beads

Here are the steps that will COMPLETELY stabilize your truck tires:

  • Place a forejack underneath the front axle to take the pressure off the steer tires.
  • Remove the valve core from the valve stem to release the air from the tire.
  • Pour the beads into the injection pump.
  • Attach the chuck to the valve stem and make sure it’s in the right position¬†
  • Hold the injection tool vertically and open the air valve release from 3 o’clock to 6 o’clock while slowly turning the injection tool upwards.

How Many Beads Do Your Truck Tires Need?

To determine how many beads you’ll need for your truck tires, first, you’ll need to know the size of your tires. The number of beads required depends on your truck’s size and weight. For example, if you have a dually truck with 16″ front tires and 19.5″ rear tires, you will need 12 ounces of beads for the front tires and 14 ounces for the rear tires.
