Many things go into running a successful coach bus fleet, from ensuring the safety of your passengers to making sure the vehicles are properly maintained. But one of the most important aspects of fleet management is fuel economy. 

If you feel like your fuel expenses are going out of control, it’s probably because your tires are unbalanced. In this blog post, we’ll talk about balancing beads and how they are useful for improving your fuel economy and saving thousands of dollars on gas while improving your vehicle’s performance.


Why Are Balanced Tires Important For Fuel Economy?

Out-of-balance tires create a lot of drag on the vehicle, which means the engine has to work harder to move the vehicle forward. This extra effort results in lower fuel economy and increased wear and tear on the engine.

Not only does an unbalanced tire negatively impact your fuel economy, but it also causes the vehicle to vibrate. This vibration can be highly uncomfortable for passengers and cause long-term damage to the car.


How Do Balancing Beads Work?

Balancing beads are tiny glass or ceramic beads inserted into the tire to help balance it. The beads are evenly distributed throughout the tire to cancel out any imbalances in the tire.

Wheel balancing beads are made of a special material that has memory technology. This means that they will retain their shape and not be affected by changes in temperature or pressure. The beads will also never rust or corrode.


How Can Wheel Balancing Beads Help You Save Fuel?

It all comes down to one thing: Memory Technology. Memory Technology inside balancing beads is capable of:

  • Keeping the complete axle end balanced at any speed or position
  • Keeping your tires balanced even at a stop
  • Reducing rolling resistance
  • Saving 2.2% in fuel economy
  • Reduce vibration-related repairs
