Counteract – How it Works
Counteract Balancing Beads are distributed around the tyre as it begins to roll, through centrifugal force. As the the forces of an imbalanced wheel assembly increase with speed, the heavy spot pulls up and down on the suspension, forcing Counteract to shift and alter its position within the tyre, through inertia. The beads continue to migrate through inertia, until there is enough of them on the opposite side of the heavy spot to counteract the imbalance of the tyre. Counteract will also adjust its position on the fly as needed when new changing tyre conditions force the product to do so.
Counteract Balancing Beads Key Benefits
Improve fuel economy
Reduce maintenance costs
Counteract Balancing Beads also provide an alternative to costly wheel weight or balancing ring installation. Wheel weights can damage your rim, work its way free and cannot adjust with the wheel as its balance changes (Not to mention how horrible they look!) Balancing rings are mounted on the outside of the tire, where they are susceptible to damage and deterioration and are only capable of balancing the wheel at 30 mph or more. Counteract Balancing Beads will last the life of the tire, change and re-adjust on the fly with your circumstance, they are easier to install and don’t harm the environment like lead products do, saving you money and time as well as saving the environment, Counteract Balance Beads are also recyclable.
