Dyna Beads Balancing

Am planning on replacing my 6 tires next month (Michelin XRV 235/80R22.5). After reading quite a few of the threads about balancing methods, I've decided on using Dynabeads.

Les Schwabs only use Equal so I told them I'll be ordering Dynabeads for them to use. I asked how much I should get and the tech told me about 6 or 8 oz and that only for the front tires. For those of you that have used Dynabeads, is this sufficient enough? Any reason why only the front and not all six tires? Need some insight from those with experience/knowledge on Dynabeads. TIA...

I'm sorry I don't remember what I put in mine last year but I do recall very specifically they said more for each rear tire and wheel because of the extra weight when paired up.

No promises but I'll take a quick look to see if I still have the order form.

Now I know why I save lots of junk;

this is where I ordered them from and their email to me.

12oz front & rear so as to be able to rotate tires if you want to, calls for 10oz front & 12oz rear since rear tires fight themselves going down the road for balancing.

Here's a link to a Dynabead chart showing how much you need for most sizes of tires.

I did the rears on mine @ the 12oz since I can not rotate the front aluminum wheels or I should say will not rotate without having them broken down off the wheels.

I prefer to balance the rears as well, to help assure a smooth ride. It's often not necessary, but with the beads or powder, you have to decide beforehand. It's too late one the tire is mounted. If you want to save some bucks, you can skip the rears. At worst you might have to have them mechanically balanced later.

Use the chart on the Dynabeads site to tell you how much is needed for each tire size.

Thanks everyone for the comments/suggestions, and special thanks to JohnRR and Mageksl for the clickies. I'll have all tires balanced for peace of mind. But I have to order them first.
