My thinking as well. If the beads are "out there" with the tire, I would think they would do a better balance job than being in closer to the hub. Like I said, just my way of thinking, not necessarily the right way of thinking.!!

You increase the distance from the axis, you increase the moment of inertia.

Chopin, I did not have my tires balanced when I replaced them about 2 months ago. I do have the centramics and I have had no problems with wobble or a feeling of a tire being out of balance. The tires I replaced had 14k miles on them too.

Ok . So they are a complete self balancing system and not just a supplement to add on .

Instructions say take wheel weights off when installing the balancers, plus i still have the beads in the tires should be twice as smooth.

I once read a new theory about inertia, but it never really gained any momentum...

It just doesn't make sense to me.
I would think it would tend to imbalance the tire. Wouldn't the balls gravitate toward the heavier part? Well if it works it works. I get mine mounted at a shop so I let them balance.

All I ever learn about inertia, I leaned from some yo-yo.
