Notes:

  • Balancing beads are designed for use on trucks with a minimum of a 1/2-ton suspension. Do not use these beads on passenger cars or SUVs.
  • If your tire has internal TPMS sensors, you will need to break down the tire to install these beads.

How Counteract Tire Balancing Works

Once your tire begins to roll, the beads will get distributed around its interior thanks to centrifugal force. As the wheel continues to spin, the heavy spot in your unbalanced tire will pull up and down on your vehicle's suspension. This will cause the beads to shift in the opposite direction of that pull. The beads will continue to migrate until there are enough of them on the opposite side of the heavy spot to balance your tire.

Video Transcript for Review of Counteract Tire Balancing Beads - 2-Axle Trailers - Pickup Trucks - CA23FR

Hello everybody. This is [email protected]. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Counteract four pack kit, four ounce bags of tire balancing beads for the tandem axle trailers, and the half ton and one ton trucks. Now these Counteract balancing beads are the economical way to balance your tire wheel assembly for the lifetime of your tires. These beads are designed to install inside your tires. I want to zoom in and show you.

It includes the 4 four ounce bags of balancing beads. And on the inside, I happened to tear one of these open. When you get them, they'll all be sealed. But this one, I did tear the top off here. And just to show you what's in one of them, and it'll come in all of them, but basically you'll get the four ounce bag of balancing beads, you'll get a Vortex Valve Core and then a self-sealing valve cap.

And again, each bag will have these items in it. You will also get the valve core remover. In other words, this end here you can use to remove or install the valve core, this end here is a regular screwdriver. And it comes with the injector bottle and the tube, which would allow you to install the beads through the valve stump. But basically these beads are made of coated glass spheres.

These are balancing beads, which will not caused damage to the inner liner of your tire. And they won't clump regardless of excess moisture. They are TPMS compatible. They are also environmentally friendly construction. They are reusable and recyclable.

Now how these tire balancing beads work, just to show you, gotta pop up an insert there to show you how they react inside the tire. So basically what happens is, once your tire begins to roll this bag that's on the inside of the tire will break open, and the beads will get distributed around it's interior thanks to centrifugal force. So as the wheel continues to spin, the heavy spot in your unbalanced tire will pull up and down on your vehicle suspension, and this will cause the beads to shift in the opposite direction of that pull. So the beads will continue to migrate until there's enough of them on the opposite side of the heavy spot of the tire to balance out your tire. Now tire balancing beads will continuously and automatically readjust the balance of your truck or off-road tires. It will reduce vibration. It shows even wear to increase the life of the tire and it even improves fuel economy. Now it is a very easy installation. As we mentioned, you just throw one of these bags in each tire, and what'll happen is, you'll put them in the tire, once the tire is removed from the wheel, so you put one bag in each one, or you can even inject the beads using this injector bottle and the tube into the tire, through the valve stem. The beads do remain inside the tire. They won't come loose to contaminate the environment and they will not cause any damage to the wheels. Now, one note I do want to mention, if your tire does have internal TPMS sensors, you will need to break down the tire to install these beads. Application for the 4 four ounce sized bags, it's designed to sit on 13 inch to 16 inch trailer tires and 14 inch to 22 inch truck tires. Now to order the correct amount of beads needed for your application, you'll get the size of the tires off the sidewall, the trailer or vehicle, and match it to the tire sizes that are listed on the product page for that size bag of beads. They make many different size bags. This one happens to be a four ounce bag, but they do five ounce, six ounce, all the way up to twenty ounce bags. And what you do is you go to our website and on each product page of that size bag, it'll show you the tires they're made to work for. Now, in order to reduce the possibility of any valve leaks, they do recommend the use of this valve core and this metal valve cap in place of the original valve core and cap. And as I've mentioned, these are included in each bag of the Counteract beads. These parts are made in the USA, and it is for a quantity of four bag of beads for four tires. But that should do it for the review on the Counteract four pack kit, the four ounce bags of tire balancing beads for tandem axle trailers and half ton and one ton trucks..

I love them. Went on a trip from Buffalo, N.Y. To Branson, Missouri and the ride was as smooth as could be. No vibration at all at speeds up to 90 miles an hour..
I definitely will use them again.

Counteract Tire balancing beads is a excellent product. Can't say enough on how good it works! No more losing weight, especially the stick on type. Beads reside inside tire and works great. Package arrived and packaged well. Thanks ETrailer!!



by:

Counteract beads are the way to go for me. Great product. Plus you don't see wheel weights on outside of wheel. Thankyou Etrailer



by:

Balance beads do not work in jeep wheels! I even called the manufacturer to make sure I was using the correct amount for my application.



by:

I have a 1970 VW van with 14" wheels that most shops can't balance because they lack the adapter ring to fit the wheels. Looking for options I found Tire Balancing Beads, with this kit being the best option for me, providing not just the beads in correctly sized pouches for each tire, but all the tools necessary to install them. That process was super easy. This low-tech solution was perfect and the beauty is, the beads last for the lifetime of the tire -- no worry about weights falling off. The price for the full kit was less than bead-only costs from most other retailers.



by:

Works as advertised



by:

This system did not work on my gmc retain or series pickup. The fire monitor in the valve stem seems to impede the head flow. Wish that was mentioned in description. Now I'm stuck with an expensive tool that does not meet my needs.



by:

I have used balance beads in many kinds of tires (trailer,truck,car,van) and always get way more miles and better wear from my tires . Highly recommend !!!



by:

Super fast shipping - same day. Definitely recommend this site for the best prices and expertise on the products they sell.



by:

I use them on every tire I change!



by:

Excellent tool! We use this often to install bead balancing on preassembled tires on trailers and trucks. It does have a learning curve (cant feed it too fast) but once you figure it out, it is perfect for the job. Just ordered a replacement in Aug '22, the replacement came preassembled and the hoses were backwards, a simple fix.



by:

WARNING on the packaging on these - each outer bag contains an inner bag of beads + a valve stem + a valve cap + a valve extension. The valve parts are just loose inside the outer bag. Problem is, it wasn't clear that the valve parts are even included with the product, and on 3 of the 4 I received, the inner bag was broken. The inner bag was broken on the first one I opened, so not knowing any better, I just dumped the whole thing in the tire and sealed it up, not realizing I had sealed up valve parts in my tires! The second one I opened had in intact inner bag, so I realized my mistake. I had to break the bead on the first tire to get the valve parts out! I haven't driven on them yet, so not sure how well they work, but thought folks she be forewarned about the packaging issue.



by:

Very easy to use. Cannot rush the installing of the beads through the valve stem.As they will log jam up. Slow and stead fill with positioning the valve stem at the bottom of the wheel. Not sure if this would work well with TPMS wheel sensors. Would probably be better to have the tires broken of their beads by a automotive shop and put in that way.



by:

Everything was A’s order



by:

RV drove smooth no issues installing great product
