About 3-4 weeks ago I had a local shop put a patch/plug in my Avon 240 due to a nail. I’m running DynaBeads so the shop saved them, repaired the tire, and put the DynaBeads back in. Now when I’m going around 70mph or so and I get on the throttle I feel almost like a vibration coming from the rear end. It seems to be fine at other speeds. At first I thought it must be my imagination but I don’t recall it ever doing this before the tire repair. Could it be that the shop didn’t reinstall all of the DynaBeads? They assured me they did put them all back in. Or could it be that the weight of the patch/plug is just enough to throw the balance off to where it would require more DynaBeads that it originally did? The belt tracks fine and the wheel seems to have been reinstalled properly so it makes me think it’s a balance issue. The shop said it's possible that the patch/plug is preventing the beads from rolling around on the inside of the tire properly and they may need to use lead weights instead.
