Using Dyna Beads will NOT harm the inside of the tires. They are also NOT self destructing and can be transferred from one tire to the other and last a VERY long time if not a lifetime.

If you were to have a slow leak, the tire CAN be repaired without losing ANY Dyna Beads. If you were to experience a BLOWOUT, then the beads will be gone. That's why I carry an extra bag for the coach tires and one extra bag for the trailer tires.

I've got news for you. I've used the hard plastic BBs for years and so have many, many others without problems. I have had them the longest in my trailer tires.
I'm sure dyna beads work just fine. I am not closed minded enough to think it is the only way to accomplish dynamic balancing since this technology was patented many years before dyna beads has been around.

TeJay,

Most truck tires are balanced on the tractor with whatever the owner chooses however, I don't think they really care about all of those other tires on the trailer.

And they may only balance the front tires and not the rears, don' t know as I am not a OTR driver but I am sure someone with OTR experience will chime in.

I know when I had new tires installed and Dyna Beads placed into each tire the truck tire shop manager where I bought the tires from stated that they never balance any rear tires on trucks.

That link is for passenger and light truck tires, and BTW has so many loopholes that Michelin can deny warranty coverage about anytime they desire.

Will those that you use go in through the valve stem or do the tires have to be broke down? I just talked with Innovative Balancing about the Dynabeads and they said that the beads they recommend for RV's with 22.5" tires are larger and won't go through the valve stems.

No these will not though a valve. They are 6mm. They are hard enough that at a walking speed you can hear them hitting each other. They really do no harm to the tires at all.
When looking at hem in the store there are different weights. some are .12 grams each, others .20 Grams, and some even .25 grams. of course you would nee to buy twice as much of the light ones to equal the same weight in the heaviest ones.

YES you can get beads to balance tires with a Wal-mart They just won't come with the Dynabeads packaging and their much higher price.

They say they are synthetic? Not sure if they are ceramic or would have the lifespan of ceramic beads?

Not ceramic. But they really don't need to either. These are just hard plastic. if you step on without shoes on you won't question their hardness. (I have) lol

I thick the plastic beads I use will outlast several tires.

I do see that warranty exclusion in both warranties, and must assume it also applies to MH(RV)tires. (nothing solid in tires) It too has so many exclusions Michelin can deny a warranty any time they choose. Like, "flat-spotting" from sitting in one spot, will void the warranty.

Mekanic- How many ounces are in one of those bottles from Wal-Mart? The folks that sell the Dynabeads say that I need 12 oz. in each of my tires.
