Yes, why wouldn't you want to have balanced rear tyres? 02' 110 TD5 Double Cab

As above, why on earth wouldn't you balance the rears?

All of mine have beads in, quite a lot of beads in fact.

Hence the question; wasn't sure so asked. All tyres are balanced as best they can be, but the big mud tyres get a slight wobble at 55mph+ so thought sticking some beads in the front would sort it. Instagram @richmond_custom

Ah. Put them in the front, then. For info I found I needed approx 8oz (225g) of beads in each of my 255/85 BFG KM2s, so you may need more than you expect.

Cheers Blackwolf. I’m probably being a bit OCD about it as it is only very slight, but it will annoy me if I don’t sort it. I’ll see how it is after and order the rears if necessary. Instagram @richmond_custom

I have standard recommendation Dynabead weight in my tyres on which are also 255/85 too. But they have been balance and have weights fitted too though. I’m not sure if Blackwolf does have weights on his as well or not but I’d go for recommended weight first. If that doesn’t solve it then go up to the weight BW mentioned. Mines been fine so far, at higher speeds they are smooth as silk. Made In GB. 🇬🇧

No weights on mine, just beads because (1) I hate weights for various reasons* and (2) my local tyre dealer can't mount Blindos on his balancing machine!


* Reasons why I hate weights:-

  • they look hideous even if not on the outside of the wheel
  • they don't self adjust as the tyre wears (important with mud tyres)
  • they have been known to fall off
  • they make it difficult to clean the wheels

The only reason I have weights on is because they were fitted before the beads. If it wasn’t for that I’d have just gone with the beads like BW did. Made In GB. 🇬🇧

Well, I put 6oz in each and can’t really tell the difference. I still get a wobble at 55-60. Just passed MOT a few weeks ago so I’m pretty confident and all the steering and bearings are ok. I’m on Goodyear MTRs, is it worth sticking a few more oz in each? Instagram @richmond_custom

Even more stupid question for those with these fitted. Do you hear the beads at all?
