Dynabeads Write-up

I am going to do a small write-up on installing dynabeads into your tires. The purpose of the beads is to balance your tires. They eliminate the need to rebalance them in the future. The tire is balanced everytime it rolls from a stop, starting at around 25-35 mph. There are two types of beads: regular dynabeads and off-road beads. The off road beads are recommended for off road type tires, such as mud terrains, swampers, etc, that are difficult to balance. When i first started using dynabeads in my swampers, i was using the regular beads and not getting the best results. Innovative Balancing told me that i should try the off road kit, which uses large beads (8 oz) so I am giving it a try on my stubborn Trxus Mud Terrains that refuse to balance.

The kit cost $62 shipped and here's what it consists of:

Four 8oz packages of off road beads and instructions




Optional items you can purchase are:

Valve stem install applicator and valve core removal:


I purchased the applicator and core removal on my last purchase from them. Since i have the larger beads, they will not fit through the valve core so i have to put them in the tire by removing on side of the tire off the wheel. You can try this yourself or have a shop do it for you. I am going to attempt it myself.


Here's an example i found that shows how the dynabeads work inside a tire:

I will post results once I get them installed and see how they "fix" my tire balancing problem.

Looking forward to your write-up mudd. When you do it can you show a size comparison with the two sizes of Dyna-Beads?
I don't think i have any of the other beads. I used those on my last set like 9 months ago or so.


Wait...i remember spilling them on my carpeted stairs...there could be some on there........

Call CSI, they will find the missing evidence.
I used some of my CSI skills and found a couple on the stairs. Looks like i'm not too good at cleaning but it comes in handy sometimes, like now :)


Hard to get a clear picture but it shows the difference quite well:

Wow they are tiny. I couldn't tell with them in the vid you provided. Hope they solve your inbalance problem.
Yeah they are almost like sand (the smaller beads). Drop them on solid ground and you are screwed. They bounce all over the place. Ask me how i know. :eek:

Wait so is this the writeup or is there more to come?
Maybe more of a product review/demo or whatever you wanna call it. I was gonna show how to install them in the tire but there's not much to pouring beads in a tire and then airing it back up. I plan to post up how it works out.

I bought the air soft and didn't help me at all. Looking forward to write up and if it helps.
which tires did you try it on? what size and how much did you use? were they previously balanced with weights and did you remove the weights?

me and kansas93xj both have the airsoft beeds (I belive 8oz each tire) and neither of us have had any problems with them and he has 35" MT/R's and I have 33" Baja Claws. I had my doubts about the beads until I used them and they actually do better than the weights did on my old tires

And $10 is a hell, of a lot better than $62

They are a bit more $$ but i prefer to support the company since it helped me with my balancing issues a few times in the past. The CS was very helpful both times i called.

If you are lookin to save a few bucks, airsoft would work just as well but you need alot of them though.

32 discoverer stt's, 8 ounces and the wheels are the kind that you have to use the stick on wieghts.
steel wheels? I had a few out of round steel wheels that threw off the balancing before. The beads just wouldn't work so i had to get new wheels.
