Tru-Balance is a line of wheel centering products designed to achieve true center by centering the wheel to the wheel stud rather than the hub pilot. While many use the hub pilot, Tru-Balance says that gravity can cause the weight of the wheel to rest only on the top one or two pilots, creating a gap in the bottom pilots. Even the smallest gap can result in an egg-shaped motion upon rotation, which can create tire vibration, increased fuel consumption and erratic tire wear, according to the company.
Tru-Balance has three different product applications that are designed to facilitate a smooth ride and increased tire life and fuel mileage. For more information, go to www.tru-bal.com.
