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.

Do they work in conjuction with the weights already on the wheels, or do you have to remove them??

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.

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.

Dennis,

How much do you charge for a set for a SWR F350?

Drove from Minnesota to Colorado & back. Set the cruise at 85 & checked mileage from tank to tank. Averaged 15.6 mpg. I need to get the Gearvendor & see if mileage would increase. That was the only smooth speed, 72mph & my filllings were coming loose. I'm looking at 2 sets of Centramatics myself.
