We've had problems in the past keeping wheels balanced on our rigs that see a lot of trail use. Clip-on weights often get torn off in the rocks, leaving you with an out-of-balance tire. Stick-on weights added to the inside of the wheel work better, but we thought we'd try something else. Innovative Balancing manufactures Dyna Beads, small ceramic balls that we installed loose inside our tires. These are meant to balance the tires dynamically while in motion. We're hoping this balance method will prove to be reliable and keep our tires in balance as they wear or as chunks get torn out of the tread. We added 12 ounces per tire before fully seating the tire on the wheel.
