Counteract Balancing Beads are a proven simple solution to eliminate vibration in unbalanced tires. The concept of internal tire balancing works great assuming your vehicle matches the criteria needed for the science to work. A stiff or simple suspension and the proper recommendation of beads per tire, are the two necessities to ensure the product will work effectively. Large, heavy-duty vehicles, half-ton trucks and up, motorcycles, ATVs/UTVs, classic vehicles, trailers, RVs etc., are all examples of where the beads are guaranteed to work. The front suspension of lighter passenger vehicles absorbs most of the vibration. This type of suspension has only led to a 75% success rate, so internal balancing is not recommended for passenger vehicles.
Counteract is a premium tire balancing product that has been on the market for over 25 years. To date, Counteract is still the only tire balancing product proven to save fuel. Two tests have been performed to verify this, the SAE J1321 / TMC RP-1102 Type II Fuel Tests both resulting in a 2.2% fuel savings result. Another study at the university of Brazil showed a reduction of heat generated in the tire compared to competitors’ products, as well as no balancing at all.
The benefits of Counteract reach far beyond that of a traditional wheel weight balance. Counteract not only balances the tire and wheel, but everything rotating on the axle end. This is to include the tire, wheel, hub and break drum. This in turn reduces tire heat, decreases rolling resistance, and allows the entire footprint of the tire to remain planted. Other proven benefits include extending tire life, increasing driver comfort, and reducing maintenance.
