How Long Does It Take Balancing Beads to Work?

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 the beads to find their balanced 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 vibrations are typically the worst. The beads will naturally readjust with a new imbalance or vibration throughout the life of the tire, resulting in extended tire life, improved fuel economy, and a smooth ride.
