ESCO Balancing Beads and Balancing Liquid
California, Vermont, and Maine, have banned lead weights. Will more states follow? Probably. Will there be a nationwide ban soon? More than likely. Let’s not forget that lead weights have been banned in Canada and Europe as well. With this push to ban lead weights, a tire technician’s options are as follows:
· Tire balancing machines. Great way to balance tires but also very expensive.
· Steel weights. With the steel weights having less density, they will have to be larger. They will also rust and can scratch wheels if installed incorrectly. This could present a cosmetic issue. Steel weights are also more expensive than lead weights.
· Balancing compounds. Many to choose from, some better than others.
ESCO has added two new options to its product line, ESCO Balancing Beads and ESCO Balancing Liquid. The balancing beads and balancing liquid are not only very effective ways to balance tires but also affordable.
