Tru-Balance Wheel Centering Products says it has added products for the Ford Super Duty F-450 and F-550 and GMC/GM 4500 and 5500, including reusable centering pin tools and external centering sleeves. Tru-Balance is a line of wheel-centering products designed to eliminate vibration and erratic tire wear by bypassing the hub pilot.
In hub-piloted wheels, gravity causes the wheel to rest only on the upper pilots, creating a gap in the bottom pilots; the smallest gap can result in an egg-shaped motion upon rotation that can create tire hop and vibration, increased fuel consumption and erratic tire wear. Tru-Balance says its products center the wheel and eliminate uneven motion, resulting in a smooth ride, increased tire life and increased fuel mileage.
