Any of y'all running Centramatics? I have been eyeballing those things for 10 yrs, just can't keep my MT's in check. Can take all the time in the world getting a good balance on them, and within a couple hundred miles I've chucked weights off into the unknown.

You cannot explain or explain away the power of God.
I haven't found any problems with them. Talking to the guy at the plant, they showed me little sample bottles of the solution and shot they use inside there. They've got a wall in their office with some that came off big trucks with a card stating how many miles were on them. Someone in Canada had a set with 1 million miles. They were in the process of trading him for some new ones just so they could have them to display.
They also work as a pretty good dust shield. I've had them for about 1 1/2 years and so far I'm happy with them. I've got street tires, but my wife has some BFG AT's. Neither of us has had our tires balanced since we put them on.
Hello, how do they mount on and how much are they. I would be interested also. I have the dually 4x4 cc 7.3 e99. I always have trouble with tire balance and this sounds the way to go. Also where to order them if you please, Thanks guy, Chet
I have em on my truck...im running 35" BFG KM's and i only notice they are on there cuz of the noise. They dont just balance the tires and wheels but the whole outer part of that axle as much as it can so it makes for a nice smooooth ride.

I have them on my motorhome with 22.5 wheels.
I heard that truckers use few golf ***** inside the tire to make the same.
Another way is to buy centramatic powder, that goes inside the tire.
All those things work, but you have to figure out the balance between the price and reliability.
I have the sand/beads stuff inside my tires also. It seems to work fine unless your wheel is bent. Which if it's bent you should have a new one anyway.
I didn't know they put it in the tire until I pulled one out of te back of my truck and bounced it on the ground, I heard stuff floatig around in there and when you roll the tire you can hear it.
Works fairly well though. I've had the truck up to "missile" speed and it cruises just great.
