Yeah Jeep is my DD. The Balancers are working phenomenally! Honestly I do not see any need in additionally balancing the tires at this time. There's absolutely no shakes or shimmies in the jeep with the Balancers on!
I am almost tempted to see how much weight each individual tire would take if I had them balanced. Just to see how much the Centramatic Balancers are actually working.

Looks like a good time.
Do you use your Jeep as a DD ?
Was wondering how the balancers do on the highway ?

|Sinister6||Got out on some trails here in CO. It was a great day for the most part. I wish people would understand trail etiquette and not go on trails if your vehicle barely runs!! Here's some pics!|

Centramatic Balancer review w/ New unbalanced Beadlocks & tires.
Well this weekend I put new tires on my beadlocks. I scraped all the lead weights off rims and drove around to see how the new tires seated.
No shakes or shimmies whatsoever the Centramatic balancers are working 100%!!! I really am blown away by how well they are balancing a bead lock rim and a 67 pound 35" tire. I really don't see a need to even have the tires balanced at this point.

|Sinister6||It'll be Spring. I'll order the 17" Beadlocks around Jan, then tires.|
|08-16-2014 03:24 PM|
that'll look great. They're definitely in the plans for me but i'll have to turbo my 2.5 first before i can throw the 37's on there...the power just isnt there lol.
when are you hoping to have them on there by??
|08-16-2014 02:51 PM|
Both axles have a truss on them, RCV's in front and Ten Factory shafts in rear, re-geared to 4:88's, I definitely think I've done everything possible to create a solid platform for 37's.
|08-15-2014 10:27 PM|
Great lookin rig, man!! Lookin forward to the next weeking trip we go on...
i'm right there with you on the 37's...aiming to go that route myself in the near future I think
|08-15-2014 08:44 PM|
Well, got 2 tire mounted up today. I'll get the other 2 tomorrow morning. Love these tires!
New 35 on the left, used 40 on the right. Crazy difference.
|08-15-2014 07:15 AM|
I should have worded it better.

Order tires on Wed off EBay. Showed up TODAY! WOW! On fast shipping!
REALLY wanted 37's but very little options on a 16" wheel. Come Spring...37's and 17" wheels!

Well, most shops won't touch Beadlocks, I got lucky in that my shop will balance them. I'll be putting new rubber on next week so I'm interested to see if the CB's will balance the tires enough on their own. Since my rig is still my DD I'll do both (balance & CB's) to insure a smooth ride. Come Spring I'm jumping up to 37's so I'll need all the help I can get in balancing my tires.

|Brit Nick||So... Do the balancers take away from getting your tires balanced at a shop. Or are they in addition to that ?|
|08-14-2014 04:08 AM|
|08-12-2014 06:04 PM|
|Sinister6||Yup, I'm impressed with them so far. Getting new rubber here in the next week. After I get the new tires mounted in interested to see how the CB's balance an unbalanced tire.|

Centramatic Balancer intial review
Well, took my Jeep out on the interstate today. I could notice the difference at around 40mph the slightest vibes I would notice as I gained speed were gone. Got on I25 and up to 65, NO SHAKES/SHIMMY, 75 still smooth, 85ish...still very smooth for 35" tires & Beadlocks. Overall, I'm very happy! The next real test will be tire life, there's a lot of review stating how the CB's increase tire life. I put on about 60 miles today, and overall very pleased. Any doubts I may have had in the back of my mind are gone!

Attachment 1355449 They send 2 styles of Balancers, Attachment 1355457 Tried both styles and neither offered any interference issues. Attachment 1355473 Put the so the "Lip" was facing the curb and it seemed like they were centered inside the whe a little better. Attachment 1355481 You can see them behind the wheel if you look real hard.
I'll take it for a Spin in the am and see if I feel an immediate difference.

Well, I'm excited the Centramatic Balancers showed up today. I'm hoping to get them installed Friday afternoon. They sure don't look like much but the reviews are great across the board.
\This Spring I installed OFF ROAD ONLY LED tail lights, well, they started to burn out very quickly. Last week I called and asked about issues they may have been having with premature failure. Anyway, they said they new ones, yellow back, take care of the issues. They warrantied them without a problem. If your lights are more than a year old they will sell you a new warranty and send you a new set of lights. Great Customer Service!

Finally bit the bullet an ordered Centramatic Balancers for my rig. The reviews are all great and a fellow Jeeper runs them and can't say enough about them.
Here's a link if you're wondering what they are...
