I need to mount a few sets of tires soon. Has anyone used the Balancing Bead Bags, and any Pros/Cons, with them ? I like the idea of not having the hammer on weights, or the stick-on type on aluminum wheels. Any, and all feedback welcome, Thanks...
I've used them in medium duty trucks that maybe hit a top speed of 70.
I wouldn't use them on a light duty, high speed car. They aren't precision IMO.
I use them specifically in lifted trucks/show vehicles and it gives it a nice clean appearance. Tire wear has been even and consistent as well. For a daily driver I would use default wheel weights.
Don't use them better to use nothing
They work well just remember to give a shot of air before checking pressure so shrader valve does not leak they make valves with filters but never tried them
