    When I saw the word "Penergizer" I first thought it was a device to (re)activate the male reproductive organ.

    The net is of course full of BS 'solutions' for that.

    My bullshit alarm just went off.
    Instead of dynamic or static wheel + tyre balancing, this mob reckon their tyre fitting gel does it for you. lol
    Thoughts, discussion or opinion welcome.



    Tire Balancer



    Ride-Onís properties as a fully functioning, dynamic can prevent many of the headaches associated with misaligned or unbalanced tires. Ride-Onís function as a tire balancer is in addition to its better known function: treating tires in order to bypass the need for .
    When your tires are rotated or replaced, making sure theyíre balanced should be a concern. Vibrations and unwanted movement may seem harmless, but they can be deleterious with regard to performance and mileage, and over time, misalignment can speed up the deterioration of certain parts of your vehicle. In addition to vibrations, uneven wear can seriously shorten the lifetime of your tires.
    Ride-On, however, hydrodynamically balances your tires. The familiar machine known as a static or ďbubbleĒ tire balancer accomplishes balancing through weights and considerable guesswork while the tire is stationary. Ride-On is a form of dynamic balancer, meaning balancing is accomplished while the wheel is in motion. Specifically, Ride-On gelís fluid dynamics make it an ideal agent for balancing, since it will be re-seated even if the shape of the tire changes (due to natural wear, for instance).
    To date, multiple fleets have made a complete shift from traditional balancing to ride-on as a tire balancer. Long haul customers have reported a jaw-dropping 25% increase in the life of their tires after they started using Ride-On. Long haul fleets are just a small percentage of customers who take advantage of Ride-Onís tire balancing ability. Itís a car and as well.
    Ride-Onís product line now also includes tire protection systems like the Ride-On LED Smart Cap. To find out more about the Smart Cap, and to learn about the inclusion of with certain quantities, donít hesitate to today.

    I've been using balance beads in my ute and truck tyres for years....
    Don't see why gel wouldn't work just as well....

    I'd like to see a video of how this gel "hydrodynamically balances your tyres".
    I can't see how the beads would work either, sorry I'm a sceptic.

    I just can't get my head around how something that moves around inside your wheel/tyre can balance it.
    Theoretically, under centrifugal force it would seek a point farther away from centre, making it more out of balance.

    There testimony is the opposite of what I would expect to happen??

    Yep. that sets off my bullshit alarm too.

    The familiar machine known as a static or ďbubbleĒ tire balancer accomplishes balancing through weights and considerable guesswork while the tire is stationary.
    This is the first thing that sets of the BS alarm. For years my local tyre dealers have just been guessing? Wow.
    No. Fvck off! Any idiot with half a brain can watch the type ballacing machine and understand how it works.
    The wheel is spun and the machine measures (aka guesses) where the center of gravity is and then tells the operator how much weight to place on the tyre rim and where.
    The operator then re-measures (sorry - guesses again) the tyre and the machine checks the result. If it is within an acceptable tollerance then the tyre passes. If it doesn't it tells the operator how to correct the imbalance.


    Ride-On is a form of dynamic balancer, meaning balancing is accomplished while the wheel is in motion. Specifically, Ride-On gelís fluid dynamics make it an ideal agent for balancing, since it will be re-seated even if the shape of the tire changes (due to natural wear, for instance).
    No fvcking no! Think about going for a ride in the gyrotron carnival ride. But inside it just has a flat surface so that a ball can roll around or fluid can flow.
    Now spin the gyrotron but lets move the wall just slightly so that it is off center. If we let the ball go it will roll to the lowest point if it were flat. However in the spinning environment of the ride where cetrifugal force is dominant, the ball rolls to the point on the wall that is furthest from the axis. This is already where the imbalance is since the center of gravity is offset from the axis in this direction. The fluid will also flow to that point.
    Where does the machine tell the operator to put the lead weight to "counter balance"? That's right, the other side !

    Long haul customers have reported a jaw-dropping 25% increase in the life of their tires after they started using Ride-On.
    Incredible Anecdotal evidence from Truckers. My bullshit alarm is now approaching Yuri Geller levels of hazardous bullshit.

    Oh...FFS...where does this guy find the time when he is OBVIOUSLY an advisor for Donald Trump?
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Anecdotal fail for balance beads.



    Found a video of what happened to the beads in a motorcycle tyre.
    Same as above; they failed & stuck to the inner circumference of the tyre.

    Oh the Avocado is the biggest duchebag I've had the displeasure of hearing about since John Edward.
    Even the spoon bending fraud Yuri Geller is saying "WTF!"

    Worse, he's in Australia at the moment spreading his anti vax bullshit in places like Byron Bay where there are some locals with heads full of more shit than the local prawns.

    I think natural selection is going to catch up with them sooner than later.
    It'll be interesting to see how many don't rush to get the polio vaccine when an outbreak occurs in Australia again.
    Given the pathetically low vaccination rates around Byron Bay (60%) it's likely the zombie apocalypse will start there. But huge numbers of the wretched undead can already be seen in the area so I'm not sure if it has already started.
