CounterAct Balancing Beads

Have you ever felt a shake or vibration in your vehicle’s steering wheel while driving? This can be an indicator of wheel imbalance. Counteract Balancing Beads provide an innovative solution to this issue. But what exactly are these beads, and why are they gaining popularity?

What are Counteract Balancing Beads?

Counteract Balancing Beads are small beads designed to automatically balance tires. When placed inside a tire, they move to counteract any imbalances, ensuring a smoother ride.  You can always buy online through McGee Company or call 1-800-525-8888.

The Science Behind Them

Imagine a seesaw. If one side is heavier, it tilts. But if you add weight to the lighter side, it balances out. This is the basic concept behind Counteract Balancing Beads. They redistribute their weight in response to imbalances in the tire.

Benefits of Using Them

  • Reduced Vibration: The beads ensure a smoother ride by minimizing vibrations.
  • Extended Tire Life: Balanced tires wear evenly, extending their lifespan.
  • Improved Fuel Efficiency: Properly balanced tires can improve mileage.

How Do They Work?

Mechanism of Action

When a tire starts to move, the beads, due to centrifugal force, position themselves directly opposite the heavy point of the tire, bringing it into balance. As the speed changes, they readjust, ensuring optimal balance at all times.

Application in Different Vehicles

Whether you drive a car, truck, or motorcycle, Counteract Balancing Beads can be applied. Their flexibility and efficiency make them ideal for diverse vehicles. Download the application for your phone or for the chart for Trucks, Off Road, or Motorcycles.
