Have been looking at the Centramatic wheel Balancers. Have a couple of questions first do they work and second will they work with the Car Tire. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Just became a darksider 4 weeks ago and it works with CT. No more balancing tires, frt or rear. Just clean the rims once or twice a month. it's worth it and tires (MT) last alot longer and will find out with CT. Have fun.

Thanks for the reply, thinking about it getting tired of running around getting someone to mount the tire. I take it you are pretty happy with the balancer's so far. Ride Safe, and Ride a Lot.

I have been running them for about 30k now, You feel them at slow speeds (less than 20mph) but once rolling they smooth out nicely. The feel them thing may just be in my head, or the roads at the time as I do not feel them all the time at slow speeds. Money well spent in my mind. I am on my 3rd set of tires since installing them and about a quarter of the way to having them pay for them selves.
See you out there

I remove and replace tires at home and don't want to pay someone to replace worn tires. You can go to Youtube and see how others have change their tires. I use help with a tire bead breaker from Harbor Freight. Which ever side you are prying off make sure you squeeze the other side with the bead breaker to permit easier removal.
I am half way in my travels and have 1 thousand miles in one day and you have to play with adjusting your rear suspension and tire pressure to avoid a very spongy ride on long hauls. I have 33 in front, 36 in the rear and at 16 or 18 on my suspension.
Oh Centramatic Balancers, I am looking for a set for my wife's bike and it works. I'm happy with the bike and steering wobble others have said will not disappear till you change steering head bearings. I'm still researching it but waiting to chat with people who has converted there 2 wheels for 3 . I think it's something to do with the rake. Myabe it's the all balls bearing but have not chat with anyone with it yet. More to come.

Thanks for the reply, I have been looking at some tire changers etc I have no front end problems, bike has been super smooth and straight from the day I bought it, I just put a lot of miles on it and am tired of having to drive 25mi oneway to get a tire mounted and then wait half the day. Think I will look again at Harbour Freight, thanks again for the info.
