Powdered Dyna Beads. A Heads Up.

Had to replace the rear tire on the 1500. Almost all of the 3 oz. of beads have turned to dust. No more than 10/15 whole beads left. Very disturbing that this happened. The tire developed a balance problem with an abnormal wear pattern much earlier than I expected. Past the wear bars on one side and 1/8 inch left on the other side. Now I know why. I balanced the new tire with weights. No more Dyna Beads for me. I don't trust them any more.

Did you use actual Dyna Bead brand, or (like I did) cheaper beads from Amazon?

Good to know Tom, I'll try to pay attention next tire change and see if that happened to mine. I believe they should still balance the tire even if they were powdered unless the powder stuck in 1 spot. Doesn't matter what's in there as long as it's free to move around.

even if there were just a liquid in the tire, it would balance out.
assuming there was not too much liquid oz in the tire.

lots of tractor tires with anti-freeze in them; but that was for adding a lot of weight

I have been using Dyna Beads w/o any problems.

wonder how many ounces you put in that tire originally before they powdered into dust?

to me, it sounds like there was not enough weight to balance the tire.

it is better to have an ounce too much, than not enough.

ie, I have 4 oz in my GL1800 rear tire. that is more than needed, but I have never, ever, felt an imbalance with it.

The front tire has 3 oz in it.


My personal preference is to using beads, as they will always compensate for unbalances caused by picking up a rock in the tread, or some mud.... then when the debris slings off, the tire will re-balance once again.

That sucks .....

I never used Dyna Beads .... but have used same weight of Airsoft .22 cal hardplastic "Red Jacket" BBs ...... no powder..... just use small wand and vac up and rinse and dry in one of those spaghetti strainer bowls ..... and put back in jar or tire for reuse.

They have to go in between bead & rim edge though.

I just a few days ago put steel BBs in the front tires of my S10, works fine for now.

The Real McCoy. Dyna Beads. I have been using them through three sets of tires on the 1500. I re-used the first set in the second set of tires. They were fine. I used a new set in these tires because I spilled some of them. I use three ounces in the tires because that is what The manufacturer recommends for the rear tire. As for the powdered variety they didn't seem to balance the tire at all after disintegrating . Due to the fact that the tire was worn so much more on one side than the opposite side of the circumference of the tire. Indicating a balance problem. (Not left side vs right side) I also began to notice a wobble/bobble from takeoff up to 45 mph. Just reporting the facts guys. I thought this might be of interest to you. Me? I'm just going back to weights. For some strange reason they seemed to have worked fine for about a hundred years. LOL
