How do you install IMI EQUAL FLEXX?
With IMI FLEXX, balancing a tire takes seconds and performs perfectly during the entire life of the tire. Installing is easy: when mounting a new tire, simply drop in a tire balancing bag of IMI FLEXX. The bag breaks open during the first few miles of driving, dispersing IMI FLEXX through the entire tire. IMI FLEXX goes to work immediately, requires zero upkeep and lasts the life of the tire. IMI FLEXX is fully compatible, including application quantity, and can be used in different wheel positions on the same truck.

What went into the development and testing for IMI EQUAL FLEXX?
We utilized state-of-the-art vibration sensing technology and partnered with the foremost experts in vibration analysis. Extensive lab tests were performed and real world measurements were taken on our development vehicles and further validated with truck fleets. Controlled over the road trials were concurrently performed with fleets, measuring fuel consumption via on-board telematics systems to prove out the fuel savings with balancing all wheel positions.
What backs the claims of longer tread life?
What backs the claims of fuel savings?
It is also common knowledge of the tire manufacturers that a tire’s fuel efficiency increases as the tread wears down. In fact, the last 20% of a tire’s tread uses 6.5% less fuel than new tread. Thus, extending tire life is also a key component of saving even more fuel. All of these facts support how IMI FLEXX will improve fuel mileage and lower operating costs. IMI FLEXX has been designed to work up to 15% better than EQUAL and any other internal balancing compound by over 15%.
