Centramatics

So who has them or tried the Centramatic wheel balancers?

I have been thinking of them and it would defeat the purpose of a colored caliper if I bought these too.

Re: Centramatics

I ran them on my 2001 and they really helped me get good mileage out of my mud tires.

I just ordered a set for my dually.

Re: Centramatics

They absolutely work. My truck is as smooth as glass on the highway, no steering wheel vibrations and my stock tires have about 65k on them and could easily go another 10k, but they are getting too old. I really think they work.

2002 f-350 PSD, 4x4, cc short bed, 6spd, ccv mod, airdog, AIS filter, isspro ev and scangauges, detroit TT, ITP boost annihalator, ITP RR, bellowed up-pipes, ats housing, turbomaster, 3.5 dp magnaflow, very happy with ultra smooth and linear PHP 50t, 80DD and "whisper" tunes.

They work with the weights or without....but having the wheel/tire balanced with weights first will make it easier for the centrametics to do their thing.

Discount just rebalanced all of my tires on my dually, and replaced one "bad" one. I had a vibration at 82-88mph that would shake fillings loose. It's much better now, but still a bit of vibe there. Hoping that the centramatics will take care of the rest, we'll know in a week or so.

I'm setup as one, but I just don't sell a lot of "accessory" type stuff so I've never bothered to advertise it.
