When I spoke to the Freightliner hot line they said DO NOT put the beads in the tire. That they would ruin the tire and void any warranty. To make a long story short, it took 18 months to find out that my 2 front tires were out of round. Don't know if the beads would have helped in that case.

When I replaced my steering tires they put either beads or fine powder. The tire dealer told me they only put that stuff in steering.

For what it's worth if you do need a rotation the two steering wheels swap out with the two driver rear wheels... Less chance they have been curbed.
