Balancing the wheels of transportation

The History of Counteract

Counteract began its journey in the quiet community of Georgetown, Ontario, Canada on the banks of the Credit River just 60 km west of Toronto. It was there we made the realization that the transportation industry needed an easier, more efficient and environmentally friendly solution for balancing tires. By 1997, after putting decades of tire experience to work on this new idea, owner, inventor and chairman, Roger LeBlanc received a patent and developed a plan starting the ground work for a strong family enterprise. One by one we delivered the perfect solution to the transportation industry’s tire balancing woes with a revolutionary balancing product that would balance not only the tire and rim, but the entire wheel assembly.

The new creation was Counteract Balancing Beads, small coated glass beads that sit inside the tire, instead of outside like the wheel weights we are used to. We could now deliver to the North American market a product that actually helped to improve fuel economy, decrease tire wear and vibration while increasing comfort for the people who make a living driving transport vehicles. Our goal was and still is, to change the way the world looks at tire balancing and open up an entirely new avenue for transport businesses to gain greater control over increasing fuel and equipment costs.

“I decided to test and evaluate the products first hand, as I do with all technologies I consider incorporating, before implementing within the fleet.  Low and behold, it was no longer than a few miles down the interstate at highway speed and I could immediately feel the steering wheel had stopped shaking and the hop was ‘completely’ gone from the truck.  I was absolutely amazed and I will not run any kind of tires on my fleet without balancing using Counteract Balancing Beads.”

“Hello Mr. Rutherford. I took your recommendation on tire balancing with Counteract Balance Beads and I wanted to say thank you for bringing this product to my attention. I have heard you talk about it numerous times on your radio show and podcast. I have finally taken the step and it was a damn good one. The balance of my tire/wheel assemblies is superb and the ride quality improvement is amazing.”

“Half our tire work is both off-road and highway trucks which run 11 R22.5 and 11 R24.5 tires. We use Counteract Balancing Beads for the majority of our balancing; it has proved to be effective in producing a smooth ride. Our trucks pick up lots of mud and lead weights don’t stay on aluminum very well, so Counteract works well that way.”
