Common Questions: How Long Does It Take Balancing Beads to Work? 

Sep 8, 2021 | Common Questions

Once the beads are installed in the tire and the wheel is mounted onto the hub, it should only take a few rotations at higher speeds for the bag of Counteract to break and to find their balance position. On rare occasions, some of the smaller bags do take longer to break due to the lack of weight. The speed that needs to be reached varies per vehicle and tire size, so we usually suggest reaching highway speeds where vibration are typically the worst. The beads will naturally readjust with a new imbalance or vibration through out the life of the tire leading to extending tire life, improved fuel economy, and a smooth ride.
