Anyone else hate the way they put those ugly lead weights on the rims of your bike ? Yes I know that they are for balancing the wheel and tyre. But each time you get a new tyre put on they pull the old ones off and shove a new set in the appropriate position and you get it back with old grubby glue patches and residue and the new ones are in the most ugly position and at the worst angle (not straight at all). No More for me I m putting my 190 tyre on and telling them not to balance the wheel surprise::surprise: WTF I see @se7en thinking...... one other.... is thinking :x I don't even notice :x the weights :x your not an aeronautical engineer so please don't even think :x:x ) but I have a Cunning plan :grin2: I am going to add those special beads into the tyre which are used on the MOTO GP Bikes. They work out how many beads are needed baced on the volume of the tyre and as the tyre spins it balances out the wheel / Tyre :nerd: And... the beads help to evenly distribute the heat :grin2: Well slap me with a uncooked Boereworse I hear @amoslws say and its like only five bucks for a bag. I'm getting mine done next week.
