Finally got me a ct

Post  13gator69 on Thu Jun 11, 2009 4:41 pm

After saving for awhile I bought a Michelin Hydroedge 205/65R16 today. Very Happy I located the dyna beads and nitrogen fill although that's another 60 or so miles. The place where I bought the tire has a product called COUNTERBALANCE. I guess they're about the same as the Dyna Beads but are glass, they come in a 4oz bag. I'm asking if anyone has used these or not. If not I'm willing to give them a try and post my comments here. thanks,Gator

Never heard of them, but some one has to be first......Trust me you dont need the nitrogen. Your paying for about 8% more nitrogen than normal, not worth it in my opinion......Just make sure your rim is clean so you will get a good seal

what Uncle Jerry is saying is that the air you put in your tires from your own air compressor is 78% Nitrogen by volume of Earth's atmosphere.
You don't need to fill your tires with Nitrogen it's in there already and if you pay someone to fill your tires with pure nitrogen they will not vacuum out the air first then fill it , no they just hook up a tank and top off your tires, so what you are getting is not pure nitrogen (only about 86%) but you pay for the taught that you are getting pure nitrogen and only nitrogen.
I am an aircraft mechanic , FAA cert. A&P , and over 20 years in the US Air Force, the reason you put nitrogen in aircraft tires is when you clime to over 20,000 ft, air expands greatly but nitrogen doesn't, well not as much anyway , and heat and cold don't effect it as much. Nitrogen is an inert gaseous that will not burn or fuel a fire , like air can.
When a salesman tells you that nitrogen won't leek out as fast , just think if there is a hole in a tire big enough to let air out then anything you pump in under pressure is going to come out too.
Just trying to save you some money.
your friend, Horse

I understand that now how about these beads these guys are using, this other bead type I found is actually a very small metal ball with a silicone covering. I'm trying to figure out how much I should use to start off with,I can always put more in.Gator

3 oz for the rear should be good.
