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 - CA45FR

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com, today we're gonna take a look at the counteract four pack kit of 12 ounce bags of tire balancing beads for the trailers, heavy duty 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. Now, these beads are designed to install inside your tires, wanted to zoom in and show you what's included in this kit, it'll include these four bags. What I'm going to show you is all these are sealed, this one, I happen to tear open to show you what's on the inside, and each bag will have the same items in it. So there's our balance and beads, and then the other extra items they include, we'll go through them here, so they'll include the 12 ounce bag of balancing beads, that includes the vortex valve core, it includes two different types of valve caps, the self self-sealing cap and the double seal flow-through through valve cap. And again, these items that are in one bag will be in all these bags, so you'll get a total of four of these 12 ounce bags of beads, four of the valve cores, and four of the self-sealing caps, and four of the double seal flow valve caps.

Also included will be this injector bottle with the plastic tube that allow you to install the beads through the valve stem and the valve core remover right here that'll be able to remove part of your valve stem and install you a new one. The other end is just a regular screwdriver. Now these beads themselves are made of coated glass spheres. These balancing beads will not cause any damage to the inner liner of your tire, they won't clump regardless of excess moisture and our TPMS compatible. They are environmentally friendly construction, so they are reusable and recyclable.

Now how the tire balancing beads work just want to show you little insert there that shows you when the tires rotating, what happens, basically once the tire begins to roll this bag that's on the inside of the tire will break open and the beads will get distributed around its interior of the tire, thanks to the centrifical force. And as that wheel continues to spin to have the spot and your unbalanced tire will pull up and down on the vehicle suspension, and this will cause the beads to shift in the opposite direction of that pole. 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 that tire. These tire balancing beads will continuously and automatically readjust the balance of your truck or off-road tires. They will reduce vibration and ensure even wear to increase life of your tire, even helps improve fuel economy.

They are very easy installation, as you mentioned, you just put these inner bags into the tires, when the tires removed from the wheels or as we mentioned, you put the beads in this bottle and inject it in through the valve stem. The beads do remain inside the tires, they won't come loose to contaminate the environment and they'll not cause any damage to the wheel. One note, I do wanna mention, if your tire does have internal TPMS sensors, you will need to break down the tire to install the beads. Now the application for this 12 ounce size bag is for 19 and a half inch to 22 and a half inch trailer tires. 19 and a half inch to 24 and a half inch truck tires, and 15 inch to 22 inch off-road tires.

Now to order the correct amount of beads needed for your application, what you'll do is get the size of the tires from the sidewall that's on the trailer tire, or the vehicle tire and match it to the tire sizes that will be listed on the product page for each size bag of beads. They do come in many different sizes, four ounce, six ounce, eight ounce, all the way up to the 20 ounce bag and on the product page of each part number of the size bag, it'll list the tire sizes that that size bag will work with. Also in order to reduce the possibility of any valve leaks, they do include this counteract valve core and then the metal cap, and you can use either the self-sealing one or the double seal flow-through valve cap, which is nice. This one installed will allow you to put air or let air out without having to retake the cap off. These parts are made in the USA, this 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 12 ounce bags of tire balancing beads for trailers, heavy duty trucks, and off road vehicles..

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.



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



by:

by:

Straight forward, easy to use.



by:

  • Can Counteract Tire Balancing Beads be Installed With TPMS on Valve Stem
    Yes, the Counteract Tire Balancing Beads # CA45FR will work perfectly with your TPMS, but you will need to remove the external sensor prior to injecting the beads. The only time that using these balancing beads with a TPMS gets tricky is when the TPMS is mounted on the inside of the tire - since yours is outside though you're good to go! Attached is a review video of this kit for you to check out.
