How much Counteract Balancing Beads needed in your tires?

Jun 15, 2023 | Technical, Tire Balancing

Counteract has made it simple for our customers to ensure they are using the right amount of balancing beads for their tires. We have created a user-friendly app for easy reference. Additionally, some tire technicians prefer to have one of our application charts displayed on their wall for quick access. What some customers may not know is that we offer six different application charts for different vehicle types: Heavy/Medium Duty, Off-Road, Utility Trailer, Motorcycle, ATV/UTV, and Classic Vehicles. Typically, adding the correct amount of balancing beads is based on a simple equation: for every 13 pounds of tire and rim weight, add 1 ounce of Counteract beads. For example, if your wheel weighs 130 pounds, you would need 10 ounces of Counteract beads. However, the amount can vary depending on factors like suspension, tread type, assembly, and speed.

Factors Affecting the Amount of Balancing Beads

One important thing to note is that Counteract Beads balance the entire rotating wheel assembly, not just the tire and wheel like traditional weights. For dual wheel assemblies, we recommend adding an extra 2 ounces of Counteract beads to account for the additional weight. Additionally, for off-road mud terrain and all-terrain tires, we may suggest doubling the amount recommended by the 13-pound equation. These tires have a greater imbalance compared to highway tread tires.
