OPTIMIZING YOUR OFF-ROAD TIRE BALANCE

A quick explanation

Counteract Balancing Beads in Off-Road Tire applications is the best method of balancing on the market for these types of tires. In recent years the off-road market has boomed and there are more and more of these tires being installed on vehicles, whether they are being used strictly for off-road purposes, or as a daily highway commuter, the look and style is certainly rugged and noticed. The issue is that they weigh a significant amount and due to their design and tread patterns they can call for such varying amounts of weight. In most cases, they call for so much weight to balance that there simply is not enough room on the users rim to accommodate the weight required. This is where Counteract has become the go-to balancing product for these applications. By having our patented beads installed on the inside of the tire allows you to add as much weight needed to balance these tires and complete axel end.   more…⇒

It’s no question that these tires are known for carrying a lot of mud, dirt and stones which will cause an out of balance vibration once they start to gain speed due to the extra weight. A traditional spin balance cannot accommodate for these vibrations, especially if your weights flung off the wheel while mudding. Since Counteract is centralized on the inside of the tire and has the ability to migrate when experiencing vibrations. Counteract is constantly changing with the tire through its daily life as it wears, changes and experiences new out of balance conditions, constantly correcting itself for the life of the tire so that you can drive as smooth as possible. In fact, we know how well Counteract works in these applications because we helped break a world record for the world fastest monster truck! The War Wizard achieving a smooth as glass ride at 96mph!

Question

 

How much Counteract

do I need?

Off-road applications can call for varying amounts of weight. From our 21 years of experience in the industry and our product being used around the world, we know that you will not always receive tires that call for the same amount of weight. You could potentially have one tire that needs 6oz of weight but have another tire on the opposite side of the vehicle that calls for 15oz of weight if not more. Unfortunately it is the nature of the beast with mudders. 9.5/10 our recommended amount of Counteract does the job for these applications, although there are times where you could run into an issue with varying amounts of weight being needed for certain wheels. In that case, to insure a true balance we recommend that the user mount the tire on the rim, place the wheel on a dynamic balancer to find out exactly how far out of balance that tire is, then simply inject that amount if Counteract into the tire via the valve stem. Problem solved!

Testimonial

No Comebacks

“We’re the largest retailer of tires in the state of Alaska. Recently we started carrying the Pro-Comp Tires which is a line of on and off road light truck tires. They’re fairly heavy; they range from 50 to 92 lbs. so they’re very difficult to balance under normal circumstances, so we’ve been using the Counteract Balancing Beads. We just started this spring (2005) and have had excellent results on every instance, not a single comeback.”
