Ride On wheel balancing

It's not often that i recommend a product here but this one is worth mentioning. I recently had my rear tire replaced and the Indy shop that did the install recommended this product. Not only does it constantly balance your wheel, it will protect against punctures. Bike runs smooth as glass and no ugly wheel weights.

I have to be honest .. I have always been sceptical of quick n easy products but after reading their website It sure sounds impressive. After pondering & thinking ahead .... imagine miles from home (no pun intended) & you pick up a road hazard, well wouldnt that be a a pain in the rectal area not to mention the safety aspects of the product you simply Ride On a wheel which automatically balances itself.

Eh Miles did ya see a price on the product

I just bought a single tube of this for $14.95 + s/h

Only picked up one for now and plan on using it in a trailer tire. We'll see how it does before considering using on the bike.

Eh! Ampster ... thats seems to me to be quite reasonable. Sure would out-weigh the aggrivation of being roadside in who knows where.

It's $15 for a 8 oz bottle. 8 oz will treat a front tire but some rears will take a little more. There is an application chart on the website.

Does anyone have any first hand experience with this stuff as to the how it affects the tire and wheel? Similar stuff can be fairly corrosive not to mention the mess it makes when changing out a tire that has been treated. I assume tmd11111, you've used this before and weren't impressed.

The Indy shop owner that recommended it to me works on all types of bikes. He said he has installed it ATVs, dirt and street bikes without any issues. I doubt he would recommend it if there was a mess when changing a tire. I've heard other installers avoid the bead products for this very reason. If you read their website - it states the product acutally extends the life of the tire. I've had it in my front and rear tires for about a 1000 miles now. All i can say for sure is the tires are balanced.

I've been using it for years and it's saved my but a couple times. Great stuff. I made multiple posts about it over the past as people have asked. About 5 or 6 years ago I was at Americade getting new Metzlers and spoke to one of the factory guys there and asked him about it as I had been using for a while at that point. He said it is the ONLY tire sealant to use. I have three bikes and have it in all three

No first hand experience but with over 30 years in the maintenance field I can assure you that if products like this really worked as claimed the OEM's would have picked up on them long ago.

I disagree. There are millions of good aftermarket products out there that will never be "picked up" by the manufacturers. It's all about profit margin. They won't make a change unless there is an upside for the company. Traditional wheel weights work fine and they are cheap.

Just ordered three bottles on ebay, delivered for $49.95. Can't wait to give it a shot. I've had 4 flats in 9 years and none of them are fun.
