Tire Balls range from $109.95 to $199.95 for each kit purchased, depending on tire size and application.
*Note: One Tire Ball kit is equivalent to one complete wheel or tire.
$200 for a motorcycle up to $800 for a rock crawler? How do you check the inflation without dismounting the tire? How do you even mount the tire with pre-inflated Tire Balls inserted?
