Liquid Tire Balancer (LTB)
Liquid Tire Balance (LTB) provides benefits that competitive products can't claim. Other balancing agents such as powders and beads, can coagulate and ball up, defeating the purpose of what they're supposed to do. Since LTB is a liquid it stays fluid and in constant movement in the tire. As a liquid it can't clog the valve stem and the cooling properties helps reduce the temperature of the tire (which extends life). Additionally, LTB contains a rust inhibitor package that prevents rust on the rim.
Lead is a carcinogenic and in many states, lead weights used to balance tires are being outlawed. LTB is an environmentally friendly formula and the major ingredient is actually a food additive. Lead weights can fall off, but LTB will never evaporate!
LTB functions under the theory of "fluid dynamics". That is, when in motion the centrifugal force of the movement throws LTB towards the tread. More fluid goes to the low spot of the tire which is directly opposite the heavy spot, thereby counterbalancing the out-of-balance condition. This is especially important where operating conditions of the tire may change during the day. A cement truck, for example, may end up with dried mud or cement on the rim which will throw the tire out of balance. Since LTB is always in motion, it will always go to the opposite side of the tire and balance it…even as conditions change! And there is no need to worry about the liquid freezing inside your tire. Our LTB has enough environmentally friendly antifreeze so that it will not freeze inside your tire down to -35° F (-37° C).
While "fluid dynamics" may sound complicated, it's easy to see and feel the benefits of Liquid Tire Balance.
