TyreBeads Tire Balancing Beads

Has anyone used these beads to balance there tires? If so are they any good? I was considering this for the tires on my 378XL Georgetown'

Thanks,
Phil

I have used them in a motorcycle and the work great. Do not know about TT tires, but would think they would.

Yes, I use bead balancing on my F550 with 19.5 inch wheels. They work great. Since they dynamically balance, having some mud or stones in the tread makes no difference the tires run balanced.

I got them because the truck had a slight imbalance at 80 km/hr (50 mph) which was really annoying. The Ford dealer said that was normal and could not do balancing there. I'm very please with Counter Balance beads.

Ditto, used in both TV and 5er tires for over 10 years. Excellent
