Dyna Beads in all tires. Works perfect all the time every time I drive.... Bought them on line from the manufacture, they had the correct amount for every tire size...

Yes. I put Dyna Beads in the steer tires when I installed new tires for years ago. No vibration. Ran sm-o-o-o-o-th all the time.

A month ago, we had a tire incident on the road, and I had new steer tires installed at a highway truck stop. They did not have Dyna Beads, so they dynamically weight balanced the tires. Seems to roll along OK.

But, based on my experience with the Dyna Beads, at the first indication of any vibration, I will buy Dyna Beads and pay a tire shop to install them.

Had equal installed in a new set about a year ago. They were not smooth, the steering wheel would shake. I took it back they checked everything which did not help. The third trip to the dealer they removed the equal from the front tires and spin balanced. The front is now smooth, back is still a little rough. I have heard many good stories about equal but it did not work form me.
