IS MAGNUM WHEEL BALANCING?
MAGNUM is a dry
free-flowing balance compound consisting of smooth, specially coated micro-beads and other materials. MAGNUM is designed principally
for balancing medium truck tires, light truck, SUV and off-road
tires, and larger passenger tires.
MAGNUM works with
the rotation of the tire and wheel assembly. As the tire
rotates, centrifugal force distributes the tire balancing
compound evenly around the interior of the tire.
In an unbalanced tire, any heavy spot in the tread, or variation
in the stiffness of the sidewall of the tire will create a pull away from the tire that results in vibration.
When MAGNUM is present, the free-flowing characteristics of the
balancing compound micro-beads allow MAGNUM to move in the opposite direction,
thereby offsetting the effects of the heavy spot, and keeping
the tire balanced at all times.
Benefits of MAGNUM
When the heavy spot
on the tire changes, through wear, trapped stones or other
foreign matter, MAGNUM automatically compensates for the change
in position of the heavy spot. No downtime with your vehicle in
the shop for rebalancing. A further benefit is that MAGNUM
compensates for any imbalance created by the other moving parts
of the wheel assembly - brake drums, hub and wheel bearings, as
well as road surface irregularities.
The cost of
balancing Medium Truck Tires with fixed wheel weights can become
prohibitive because fixed weights require tires to be
re-balanced at regular intervals, usually every 30,000 miles.
This could mean 8 to 10 balances in the life of the tire.
With MAGNUM, all truck tires can be efficiently balanced for the
life of each tire because MAGNUM retains its physical balancing
characteristics across extended use.
