Run-Flat tires and Dyna Beads....

Post  TheWatcher on Fri Jul 16, 2010 11:44 am

I know that this has probably been asked about a lot of times.

Can Run-Flat tires be run with Dyna Beads in them.

Just wondering if this can be done?

Yes...but we don't recommend "run flats" as darksides for bikes! The only failure we have ever seen was from a run flat...scary stuff!

In addition to the problem Bobby is referring to, most "Run Flat" tires come in sizes with an aspect ratio of 65 or below.

From the Inovative Balancing website:

"Our official policy is that we do not advise using Dyna Beads in any car, truck or SUV tire with an aspect ratio 65 or below unless used in conjunction with weights.
The reason for this is that this type of tire has a higher incidence of lateral imbalance, which is basically that one side of the tire is heavier than the other side, creating a “wobbling” effect, or “shaking” of the steering wheel. This type of imbalance can only be corrected by careful placement of traditional weights on the wheel rim."


Dynabeads work best in a 70 series or higher tire. More Info

Thanks to all that helped out, I'm planning to continue on using a Michelin HE 205-65-16 on my bike, got 28K out of the first one might as well do it again. Very Happy

Good choice Larry. Are you going to change it yourself? Give me a call if you need anything.
