Re: Talk about ANYTHING WK thread.

Have any of y'all heard of, tried or seen these things called tire beads? They're ceramic balls that go inside the tire. They're supposed to eliminate the need for balancing!! It would make rotating tires WAAAAY easier!! I have to have them balanced now, but with these things, BLAM!! Front to back (or back to front, if you prefer ).

Jeff, RKirk, you guys are professionals. Are these a gimmick, or will they work?

Sounds like a gimmick and a noisy one at that

Noise? What noise? I can't hear anything but the radio! The tires are noisy, and the top whistles (only cause it doesn't know the words...).

I'm trying to do a little research on 'em.

Well it's a gimmick because tires tend to be weighted inconsistent so the need to counter weight them (balancing) on the rim is needed. The weights cannot move. That's why if you throw a weight going down the road you feel it as the tire is now out of balance...

Having weights that just roll around in the tire will not counter balance the tire because the weight has to be specific and in a specific spot. Plus noisy as they won't just roll nicely. They will bounce around and off the inside of the rim.

Re: Talk about ANYTHING WK thread.

Yea, that's kinda what I figured, but I was hoping... The physics (centrifugal force) make sense. I have balanced tires before. A high school friend worked at a shop. On Sundays, when no one else was around, I'd how hang out with him.

Got a check today from Jeep for $200 to use on parts/accessories for the hassle of all the recalls lately! Nice!

Sorry bro. But spinning an unbalanced tire faster only magnafies it
