FAQ

My tire size does not appear on the Calculator app or Application chart. How much should I install?2019-11-27T09:54:19-05:00

You can calculate what size you will require using the weight of your tire.

  • Use MAGNUM+ Calculator by tire weight to calculate precisely what you need.
Should I still static balance my tires?2019-11-27T09:54:29-05:00

No, it is not necessary to static balance your tires when using MAGNUM+. MAGNUM+ provides a dynamic internal balance every time your vehicle starts.

For 55 series or lower, use MAGNUM+ in combination with a static balance.

What happens to the plastic bag once it breaks open inside my tires?2019-11-27T09:54:40-05:00

The insert bag is made of a very thin plastic that shreds and ultimately disintegrates inside the tire.

What is MAGNUM+ made of?2019-11-27T09:54:50-05:00

MAGNUM+ is made of tempered glass that does not break down or disintegrate. It does not contain any silica-based coating and is incapable of absorbing moisture.

What size of MAGNUM+ should I install in my tires?2019-11-27T09:55:01-05:00

Please refer to our MAGNUM+ Calculator or our Application chart to determine what size of MAGNUM+ to install in each tire.

Can I add more MAGNUM+ than the application chart recommends?2019-11-27T09:52:25-05:00

The MAGNUM+ calculator and the application chart determine appropriate size of MAGNUM+ using the following formula: every 10 lb / 4.54 kg of tire requires 1 oz / 30 g of MAGNUM+. This formula ensures a proper balance, even if additional weight is added (i.e. gravel, snow or mud).

If you wish to up-size the amount of MAGNUM+ you are installing, do not up-size more than one size from the recommended chart amount. If you add too much additional weight, you can potentially create an imbalance that did not already exist.

Can I use MAGNUM+ tire balancing beads for my heavy ply / bias ply tires?2019-11-27T09:52:36-05:00

Yes, if your tires are heavy ply (bias ply), you will need to up-size to the next size indicated on the application chart.

Can MAGNUM+ be installed in passenger cars and motorcycles tires?2019-11-27T09:52:47-05:00

Yes, MAGNUM+ can be installed in passenger (PCR) and motorcycles tires.

Use MAGNUM+ Calculator by tire weight to calculate precisely what you need.

Do I need a special valve core with MAGNUM+ beads?2019-11-27T09:52:56-05:00

No, MAGNUM+ does not require a filtered valve core or any special valve core for that matter. The beads are too large to interfere with the valve.

Does MAGNUM+ affect the manufacturers’ warranty on my tires?2019-11-28T15:34:45-05:00

MAGNUM+ does not affect the manufacturers’ warranty. MAGNUM+ is perfectly round and extremely smooth preventing it from doing any damage to the inner liner of the tire.

Does MAGNUM+ break or turn into powder once inside the tire?2019-11-27T09:53:21-05:00

MAGNUM+ is made of extremely strong, tempered glass that will not break down or deteriorate. MAGNUM+ will outlast the life of the tire and can be scooped out and reused in a new tire.

I experience vibrations with my vehicle even after installing MAGNUM+. What is wrong?2019-11-27T09:53:30-05:00

First you will need to confirm that the proper size of MAGNUM+ was installed in the tires.

If your tires are heavy ply (bias ply), you will need to up-size to the next size indicated on the application chart.

This could be caused by mechanical issues. Contact our customer service to help you

I have received my order of MAGNUM+ but the bag inside is broken. Can I still install it?2019-11-27T09:53:39-05:00

Yes, you can still install MAGNUM+ if the insert bag has broken inside the bag. Simply remove the broken bag and pour the beads inside the tire before mounting it onto the rim.

Is MAGNUM+ packaging recyclable?2019-11-27T09:53:52-05:00

Yes, all MAGNUM+ packaging as well as the beads themselves are recyclable.

  • The insert bag completely disintegrates inside the tire and the outer bag is recyclable.
  • The plastic Fleet tub is reusable and recyclable.
  • And as always, MAGNUM+ can be scooped out recycled or reused into the next set of tires.
