Our shop was thinking of becoming a dynabeads dealer but after they talked to us we decided not to because they told us they don't work as well in car tires, especially wider car tires. They still work OK in a 195/55/16 but I have now tried them with and without the beads in my rear tire. I get more mirror shake with them in the rear so I just use them in the front wheel now. Most good car tires don't take much weight to balance anyway, much less than the 4 oz of beads you need.

After talking about the beads at a couple differant tire shops I have found out that the beads are still not a cure all.....As some seem to think...Not sure if any of you guys remember but back in the 70's and 80's balancing powders and small beads were popular for a time till companys found out they didn't make much differance at all...I was a fleet driver at the time and our company tried everything under the sun to prolong tires..
