I recently retired from trucking after 28 years as an owner/operator and for the last 12 years have used balancing beads exclusively in my semi tires. They are the ONLY balancing method that eliminated cupping and flat spots. The Peterbilt I sold 3 weeks ago had 1.2 million miles on it of which I drove it 800,000 miles with beads in the tires. Since I also do all my own tire work, I moved the beads from a worn tire to the new, saving the cost of bead replacement too. Very cost effective, accurate balancing.
