Balancing Beads

For almost 100 years, Ken-Tool has been a trusted brand in the tire service industry.  We’ve taken that wheel end expertise and are now proud to introduce our new Ken-Tool Balancing Beads, which offer complete wheel end balancing.

A simple cost-effective alternative to spin balancing is to simply install Ken-Tool Balancing Beads. Our easy to use drop in bag saves time and money on new tire installation and can be injected through the valve stem to completely balance the axle end on existing vehicles without dismounting the tire and wheel.

Our uniqueness in the marketplace is the memory technology that keeps our beads stabilized which provides a completely balanced axle end in all wheel positions not just highway speeds. This product always responds to correct either a sudden or progressive change in a state of balance conditions.

Spin Balancing and Machine Balancing only balance half of the axle end, meaning the tire and wheel. Ken-Tool Balancing Beads balance the complete axle end…the tire, the wheel and all the moving com-ponents of the wheel assembly (Hub, Brake Drum, etc…), not just the tire and wheel.
