wheel balancing

1 oz for front and 2 oz for back but only just. Put some less in back and some
more up front.

Dyna Beads website:
There is a list of dealers in other countries on this site.

I am going to try them also but still wonder if I can get the 0,5 mm beads
somewhere cheap for other applications like grinding or filtering. Bigger beads
may damage I guess. Ceramics is self sharpening. It was advised to ask the
bigger tire centers. Motor-sport businesses also sell similar products.

They are supposed to work really well on bigger wheels, like on motorbikes and
weights are attached higher, may also come loose. It works dynamically where
weights are attached only ones.

Realize however that the beads do not seem to work with driving high speeds. At
110 km/hr or so, their weight gets spread evenly due to the centrifugal force.
This only applies to wheels that are not in balance and would have had a
balancing problem without the beads. One may use conventional balancing together
with the beads.

It is no use at all to add them to an existing tire configuration. You do not
know if any grease or water is present at the inside. Grease can be cleaned. To
avoid water in a tire, something you always should, use nitrogen. The site of
Dynabeads advertises this for obvious reasons. Air filling stations along the
road may have lots of water in their system. I do not fill when it rains to
avoid moisture.

Among the downsides is that the tire should not be very soft on the inside.
Racing tires and inner tubes are excluded for that reason. I believe to have
read that a filter is not necessary for our valves.
