I was wondering if there is any correlation between the CT with higher miles and dyna beads or the centrifugal balance versus lower miles using traditional weights?


For those getting high miles on your tires which method of weights are you using traditional or a dyna bead or centrifugal balancer.

cen·trif·u·gal

adjective

1.moving or directed outward from the center ( opposed to centripetal).

2.pertaining to or operated by centrifugal force: a centrifugal pump.

3.Physiology . efferent.

noun

4.Machinery .

a.a machine for separating different materials by centrifugal force; centrifuge.

b.a rotating, perforated drum holding the materials to be separated in such a machine.


I used the centrifugal types from the mid sixties on a 426 HEMI Plymouth and later on a 426 HEMI Cuda...


Seemed to work well then as well as now...

Can't say to much about tire life, not to many tires lasted to long on any on my cars...

I really don't think it had anything to do with the balancing system I was using either, I really think it may have been my right foot...

Sorry folks, I tried to do a serious poll to see if one method got better miles over another. But with 140 views and 5 responses and based on the comments I obviously got it wrong. I had hoped to contribute something of value and generate some thought with this poll.

My bad,
Dale

Dale, it’s not your bad at all...

I really don’t think to many people on this forum knew about this kind on balancing systems until they heard about it on here for there wings, I did use them starting back in the sixties but as I said I always either was racing or they were in the garage, and I really can’t help on the longevity on the tires, but I do know from about 40+ years on experience they really do work in balancing the tires...

Maybe if you could reach out to some truck drivers that are using them they will be able to give you more information that we bikers can...

Still, not your bad...
