Default Kudo's to Anti-Splat Aero...Main Wheel Bearing Mod

As advertised, lightening fast turnaround and exacting workmanship. Look at the number of wheel weights required to balance the wheel!

Thank you Allan!

Default Tire balance

Tire balance? Looks like a lot of weight,if I have to add more then three ounces to a car tie & wheel,I brake the tire down and rotate it 180 degrees,as Murphy would have it,you can mount the heavy side of the tire on the heavy side of the rim and have to add a ton of weight to get it to balance.

That thought did cross my mind. Yes, I too was surprised to see all those weights. I'll see how it runs with the weights. I didn't have any vibration or tracking issues before the mod.

That's easy! No gunk tank full of NAPHA and no grease all over the place.
Not to mention a save of about 1 hour labor. For me one of my most disliked jobs during annual.
Now Easy Peasy!

Its about 2 oz looks like. Takes a lot of weight to balance a tire when the weight is only a couple inches from rotation.
