Centramatic balancers for NCV3

I am getting ready to order balancers for the drive axle.
I have them making a jig so they can make them for the Sprinter with Alcoa wheels.
Anybody interested for a set of 2 only for the drive axle.
Cost will be $215 plus a share of the jig which I was told is $100.
I believe this is a good option and avoids costly balancing with ugly weights in the aluminum rims.
Let me know.
Thanks
Peter

I take it that they don't make them for 16" wheels.

Not sure about 16" but I know they don't make them for the Sprinter.
Reading the Classic threat it looks like they would be a great update.
For now only for the rear but I also ordered a set for my SkyDeck as well as for the HD Roadking.
I figured I should get maybe 10 sets together. That may convince them to look a little closer into the front wheels.

They don't make them for the front yet.
Let us know how the beats in the tire work maybe that is an easy solution for the front.

Test drove today, seemed fine.
Would like to add the centramatics on the rear.
Have 20 k on van, front tires were edge worn and causing vibration at 65 mph, all good now.

Used the beads in our old 34ft class c for years

Had the same problem on mine I also had the suspension realigned there is a special bolt they installed to get a better setting. Changed also to Michelin tires made a big improvement.
