To achieve maximum results, it is important to use the proper package size for each tire. As a rule of thumb, the amount of Counteract required per tire is based on one ounce per thirteen pounds of tire. If you are using our throw in bags, open & discard outside bag only & throw clear inner bag containing Counteract directly inside tire cavity. If you are not using an applicator and pouring the contents of the bag directly into the tire, it is imperative that none of the contents of the bag ends up on the bead seating area of the tire and rim. Counteract disclaims any responsibility for air loss or tire damage due to improper installation or air check. In order to reduce the possibility of valve leaks, the use of a Counteract valve core and a metal CBB valve cap is recommended and included in every bag of Counteract. Counteract is TPMS compatible.
Most tracker trailers use 10oz in the front tires and 10oz in the rear tires on single axles. Dual axles in the rear will need to use 12oz per tire. Super Wides wil need to us the 16 oz bags.
The science is revolutionary
The goal of balancing a wheel is to reduce its rolling resistance by decreasing tire sidewall flexing, tread squirming, and friction caused by reverberation. The benefits to accomplishing proper balance are greater fuel economy, longer tire life and reduced vibration—all of which result in great efficiency for your business or personal life.
The technology behind our balancing beads is protected by international patents and only available from Counteract Balancing Beads. It has turned the commercial trucking, transportation and recreational industries on their heads, worldwide. Made of a patented specially coated glass bead that will not breakdown or degrade, our balancing beads are placed directly into the tire where they are free to move and adjust to balance imperfections as they develop. Our balancing beads automatically balance the complete wheel assembly.
Counteract Balancing Beads were introduced to the transportation market over 14 years ago and are now manufactured and sold throughout the world. A proven and trouble-free product, our balancing beads provide continuous balance for the life of the tire. Furthermore, they are very clean to work with, contain no dust, and are one of the few environmentally friendly products that actually save you money.
Now, vehicles a half-tonne or larger have a simple and proven weapon against the unnecessary loses due to imbalanced wheels. Counteract Balancing Beads were designed to be installed easily by dropping a pre-measured package into the tire cavity before mounting or to be injected through the tire valve stem. And, because they were developed to allow anyone to install them, the costs associated with mounting and dismounting tires, not to mention balancing them the old fashioned way, are virtually eliminated.
Take a look at the science behind Counteract Balancing Beads
I have a 2005 one-ton Ford pickup with a 6-liter power stroke auto transmission. Tires; Cooper size 35x12x50 are mounted on my truck with a 40,000 mile tire life. Prior to putting in the beads I was experiencing a 50 mph tire vibration and tire whine. After installing the beads and removing all of the tire balancing weights from the wheels, the fuel economy improved by 1.8 mpg* (13.6%), the tire vibration and whine was eliminated at all speeds and the tire wear increased.
I had originally took my truck in to have one of my tires fixed for a slow leak. When they checked my mileage, their chart showed that I had 57,000 miles on my tires. So they checked the tread. My tires still had 1/3 of their tread left. Based on my calculation, I will get over 70,000 miles of use on these tires. That is a 75% increase on my tire wear. These tires cost me $500 a piece. Thank you so much for bringing to my attention the Counteract Balancing Beads.
* We have received additionall reports of 1 ton Dodge and Ford pickups getting 10-14% fuel economy improvements as well as two off road Toyota's (over sized tires with lift kits on frame) that have reported improved fuel mileage, one of these trucks over 15%.
I just installed your Counteract beads in my new RV tires. Where have you been? I cannot believe how well they work. Just after the first few miles, it felt like someone placed an air cushion between my tires and the interstate. I am now going to install the Counteract beads in my motorcycle trike tires. Outstanding product!
We have been using Counteract Balancing Beads for 1 year. Our fleet consists of 800 tractors and 1200 trailers and we use about a case of product a week. We switched to Counteract because we found that the competitors’ product that we previously used was bonding to the aluminum rims close to the bead seating area of the tire causing corrosion. The wheel then had to be buffed with a steel wire wheel grinder to remove the material and corrosion. We have had no problems with Counteract and it does a great job for us.
Our customers love it! I own a flatbed trucking company in Yankton S D and after many years of using the powder balancing stuff a friend of mine that works for a Goodyear tire company told me about Counteract . We have been using it in all of our tires since then, 3 years ago. We use it in steer tires , drive tires and trailer tires . I have seen about 50 percent better tire wear and the tires cap better as we have very little trouble with tire damage or failure . I also have seen about half a mile to the gallon improvement on fuel mileage . Plain and simple I would quit trucking before I would go back to the other stuff we used before and would never consider using anything other than Counteract Balancing Beads . Don't forget no powdery dust mess either . Thanks .
I was asked to try COUNTERACT but was very skeptical as to its value with the program we had. The only real issue we were faced with was river wear on our front tires, which is normal with radial tires. We had to rotate our tires about 40,000 to 50,000 miles due to the wear pattern. Since we ran the same type of tires on the rear we just simply moved the fronts to the rear and rear to front. We installed the beads in our front tires. We did not let the driver know anything about what we were doing.
We started as one of the first companies in Russia to use Counteract Balancing Beads. We used them to perform tire balancing from our 24-hour Road Service Truck. At the beginning our customers bought the beads only to try them out. Now, transport companies and their drivers prefer balancing all truck tires with Counteract Balancing Beads. In particular, national bus transport companies just started using Counteract Balancing Beads and the feedback has been always excellent.

I think Counteract does the job 100%. We have over the road truck drivers who come in for it, they’re tickled to death, some call and if we don’t have it they won’t buy the tires, so they believe in it too. Some of my older customers call and ask for Counteract balancing Beads. If you haven’t got it they tell you they just can’t buy any tires from you. We’ve been using Counteract for 7 years. We’re probably one of the first operations in the area using it. We balance the drive wheels, most over the road crew balance all wheels. It’s the real deal; it’ll get it done. It will cap the sale every time.
On behalf of Can-Truck Inc., I would like to thank Counteract Balancing Beads for the wonderful benefits of extended tire life and ride improvement. We operate a large fleet in the transportation sector and have greatly struggled with tire wear on our low deck trailers. At this time we feel we have doubled our tire life, which in turn has lead to great savings on our overall budget. We are so pleased that we have now moved to Counteract Balancing Beads in all our tires. Keep up the great work Counteract.
I use it in my own trucks and I sell it as well. I have two 15’ box vans loaded with supplies and Counteract. I balance all 6 of my 19.5 tires. I run about a one hundred mile radius of home. I’ve sold the competition products but I just like Counteract the best of all. I put it in my own truck and it does an excellent job for me on the steering axle and the drives. When that truck runs, it drives smooth with Counteract. It had weights on it when I bought it new but when I put about 5-6 thousand miles on it, you start getting little bumps on it. You don’t notice that happening with Counteract. It still runs as smooth as it can be. I sell Counteract by the case. It’s a fine product.
