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 - CA35FR

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the Counteract Four Pack Kit of eight ounce bags of Tire Balancing Beads for trailers, trucks, and off-road vehicles. Now, these Counteract balancing beads are the economical way to balance your tire and wheel assemblies for the lifetime of your tires. These beads are designed to install inside your tires. Wanna zoom in for a better look here. But basically, you can see it includes four bags.

Now, these are all sealed, this one I happened to tear open just so we can show you what comes in each bag. I'm gonna dump out the ingredients, and again, this will come in all the bags. We'll lay out everything right here, and you'll be able to see in each bag, it'll come with an eight ounce bag of balancing beads, it will come with this vortex valve core, it'll come with the self-sealing valve cap, and the double seal flow through valve cap. Now again, these items will come in all those bags, so you'll get four of each of those, and then four bags of eight ounce bags of beads. It does also include these parts here, it includes the injector bottle and the tube that connects to it to allow you to insert these through your valve stem, and it will come with this valve core remover, this allows you to remove the valve core in your valve stem and to re-install it, and also has a screwdriver on the other end.

Now, these beads here are made of a coated glass sphere, these balancing beads will not cause any damage to the inner liner of the tire, they won't clump regardless of excess moisture, and they are TPMS compatible. These beads are environmentally friendly construction, they are reusable and recyclable. Now, how these tire bouncing beads work, I just wanna show you a little graphic there that'll pop up, and if you'll look at it, it sorta shows you, as the tire is rolling, what happens. But basically, once your tire begins to roll, this bag on the inside will break open, and the beads will get distributed around the interior of the tire 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 suspension, and this will cause the beads to shift to the opposite direction of that pull, so the beads will continue to migrate until there are enough of them on the opposite side of the heavy spot of the tire to balance out your tire.

These tire balancing beads continuously and automatically readjust the balance of your truck or off-road tires, they do reduce vibration, and they'll ensure even wear to increase life of your tire, even helps improve fuel economy. Now, to install these bags, it's very easy installation, you just take the center bag here, we'll throw this into the tire when it's removed from the wheels, or as I mentioned, you can put the beads in here and inject it using this bottle with a tube on it through your valve stem. The beads will remain inside the tires, they don't come loose to contaminate the environment, and they will not cause any damage to the wheels. Now, one note I do wanna mention, that if your tire does have internal TPMS sensors, you will need to break down the tire to install these beads. Application for this eight ounce size bags is 14 1/2 inch to 17 1/2 inch trailer tires, 15 inch to 22 1/2 inch truck tires, and 15 inch to 16 1/2 inch off-road tires.

Now, to help you order the correct amount of beads needed for your application, what you'll do is get the size of the tires from the sidewall of your trailer tire or vehicle tire, and match it to the tire sizes listed on the product page for that size bag of beads. So if you go to this part number, this is an eight ounce bag, if you go to this part number under the eight ounce bag, it'll list all the tire sizes that this is designed to work for. If you go to the other sizes, we do so all the sizes, they have an eight ounce, the 10 ounce, they go all the way up to a 20 ounce bag, but each product page will list what size tire that size bag will work on. And then also, in order to reduce the possibility of valve leaks, as I mentioned, these valve cores, it's a Counteract valve core, it's included, and the metal valve caps are included, and they recommend to replace the original valve core and cap with these that are included. And these come again in every bag, so you have four of each. This is just a standard self-sealing cap, this one you can actually screw on in place of the cap and it gives you a double seal flow through valve cap, in other words, you can put your air hose on there, fill it up with air, and then you remove it, you don't have any cap to put on and take off, this'll just stay on there. Now, these parts are made in the USA, and this is for a quantity of four bags of beads for four tires. But that should do it for the review on the Counteract Four Pack Kit of eight ounce bags of Tire Balancing Beads for trailers, trucks, and off-road vehicles..

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.

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.



by:

Counter Act balance beads are an excellent product, I have used them in my motorcycle tires for years. This is the first time I have ordered a set for truck tires.



by:

Counteract beads are a great product. Works past my expectations. Plus you don't see the wheels weights. Much cleaner look. Thanks Etrailer



by:

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:

Good tires for price, used on car dolly, exact replacement, no issues at all so far



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.
