After only 2000 miles, the new tires I purchased began exhibiting a bad handling problem. I contacted the tire manufacturer, and they were kind enough to offer me a credit towards a different set of tires.
I had installed Dynabeads in the tires that were being replaced, and according to Dynabeads, they are re-usable. I began wondering how I would extract the beads from the old tires, and then it hit me....my Dust Buster!
I took my cordless Dust Buster (with extendable snout) and six zip lock baggies with me to the tire shop, and explained my plan to the tire installers. They carefully removed each rim from the old tires, being careful not to dump out the beads. I vacuumed out each tire with my Dust Buster, and placed the contents into the zip lock baggies. I then dumped one baggie into each new tire before they were mounted.
Some of the other workers at the tire shop were laughing at me at first, but later complimented me on the idea.
I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this, but I thought I would pass it along in case someone else was wondering how to remove and re-use their Dynabeads.
