Tire balancing product

Has anyone used this Ride-On Tire Balancer and Sealant?

Amazon.com: Ride-On Tire Balancer and Sealant - 8oz. - M/C 41208: Automotive

I would be wary to rely on it to balance a tire instead of using weights, but I can see how it could fine tune after balancing a tire. And preventing flats.

I use it in my TW200 for it's sealing properties. In the 919 I use Dynabeads, they work great.

I also like balance beads. If you mount your own rubber, you can pick up some glass craft beads at a dollar store, cheap. They work just as well but won't fit thru the valve stem.

I'm assuming you couldn't use the two products together

I wouldn't think so, the beads would get stuck to the liquid.

That's what I figured. I'm not sure I trust the balancing ability of the liquid, but the sealant properties could be nice. How many dyna beads are you supposed to use? Is it different depending on what kind of tire you get?

I love Dyna Beads!

Here is a chart for how much bead product to use vs. your tire size:

Tire Balancing Charts for Light Truck, Commercial and Motorcycles

I'm on my second set of tires with beads instead of wheel weights. I don't plan on going back to weights - the beads are "fire and forget."

I use that chart with a food scale to measure out craft beds from Walmart. Works perfectly and dirt cheap.
