Do you need the cores with the filters for the beads?

Balance or not

I wish I had kept the photos of the unbalanced tires I took off a like new Wildwood EXL Hybrid this summer. I would have posted them for you. Horribly uneven wear and choppy ride. It significantly reduces a tires life, too.

Here is a reference from one of the manufacturer's that does not cover tires with beads in them. Look at the top of page #3 under the heading of what is not covered.

Thank you for posting your reply. Never heard of this before..but then on the other hand I've only balanced wheels using weights..I know they work.
