Arb deflator tool & tire balancing beads??

Is there a particular size of bead to get if you want to try the bead method of tire balancing and you use the ARB deflator tool? (Or one like it that removed the valve core to deflate)

Think I want to try this method. My buddy runs beads but sometimes gets one stuck when trying to air down. He uses a different deflator but still makes me wonder about this before I order..

Equal makes screw on and valve core filters to keep the beads in.

You could just deflate the tire with the valve core rotate to the top.

I have the Currie version of the ARB deflator and really like it. Simple to use and you can monitor the air pressure as you air down:

Currie Enterprises CJ Axle Parts

Try either one, I don't think you will be disappointed. I would be hesitant (myself) to use a valve core remover or beads, IMO.

Good luck!
Best of Luck!
