The first set of Backwaters bounced some, but the replacements are worse, on the roadways. Any others have this issue? They are mounted on Beadlock wheels. Not sure if that is the problem. The old Big Horns rode smooth for 3,000 miles.

Might be the Beadlocks. Mine give a little feedback to the steering wheel above 40mph.

It shakes the steering wheel bad at all speeds on hard surfaces.

Les have you spun it while it's off the ground? I had to send a Kenda back because it was out of round.

I can tell that mine have a flat spot after sitting for a while. Once they get warm any shimmy goes away.

It did feel better today after I rode on the 200 acres across the road, my property and some others, before I hit the road. Like Nathen said, I think when I just take off out of the barn and ride the road first is when it is bad. Must just be flat spots.

Anyone use the Dyna Beads on here? They look simple enough.

I use them in my harley tires and they work great. Not sure they would in a rzr tho, not sure they'd be turning fast enough. They are easy to use, wouldn't hurt anything but your wallet to try them.
My blackwaters weren't as smooth as the bighorns but they were a hell of a lot better than the Moto MTC'S. Man those tires sucked, I bet there's wagons out there that are smoother than they are. IMO the blackwaters are still an upgrade over the bighorns. Hope u get it figured out.

When I ran STI wheels I had to break them down & rotate the tires a couple of times to eliminate the "shimmy." I think mine was a combination of out of round Rocktanes & not being beaded up properly.
