Solution A is a patented (#7,178,880) reusable tool that is used at the 12, 4 and 8 oclock positions when mounting the wheels. Once the wheels have been mounted, the three centering pins are removed.
The pins are made of hardened steel to ensure durability and threaded inside for proper alignment and easy removal of the tool. One set includes three centering pins.
We offer various sizes to accommodate steer and drive wheels. Our Solution A pin sets also work on most trailers as well. Centering your whole truck is possible with the TRU-BALANCE: Solution A product line.
How/Why TRU-BALANCE Works
When mounting hub-piloted wheels all the weight of the wheel and tire rests on the top pilots creating a gap in the bottom pilots, leaving the wheel off center. A small gap the size of a business card can result in an off center wheel and an “egg-shaped” motion upon rotation. This uneven motion results in tire vibration and irregular tire wear. Even if you balance the tires, the wheel is still off center. The bottom line is you can’t balance an egg.
The TRU-BALANCE products bypass the hub-pilots and center the wheels back to the wheel studs which is the true center of the wheel. Once the wheels are properly centered the uneven motion and out of round condition is eliminated. The result is increased tire life, increased fuel mileage and an unbelievably smooth ride.
TRU-BALANCE products are easy to use and install and come with a money back guarantee. We offer centering sleeve sets that stay on the wheel permanently as well as reusable centering pins that are used when mounting the wheel and then removed.
