Just ordered Centramatics from Andy.
Will install when they arrive and report back impressions after a road trip.

There have been some allegations of beads in the tires causing wear to the inner rubber and exposing the innermost belt in spots. True or not, I don't know. That said, I prefer Centramatics wherever application is available. I do have Dynabeads in my scooter tires. No real way to balance those wheels without a lot of disassembly and maybe a cycle shop can balance????? I just know the rear wheel would hop around a lot when on the center stand. After beads....smooth as silk.

I have tried Dyna Beads in motorcycle tires. Couldn't see a difference.

I have beads in an older vehicle and I remember them working well. It has been a few years since I have driven the vehicle.
I had a pair of centramatics on my pickup that went bad. The company warranted them with a new set. I put these on the truck and found the truck drove smoother without the centramatics.
If you decide to go the centramatics route make sure you hear the bb's make noise when the wheel turns.
