I just had my pick-up done yesterday; $120.00 +Tax (6 wheels). I think I will be happy with the results!

I wasnít very happy with the tire balancing when I first got the tires. When I had first gotten them, they were balanced on a computer and then the weights were added. Iíve had a noticeable vibration since then at normal cursing speed.

The weights were removed and the material was placed inside each tire. Itís all located inside a small biodegradable bag. I donít know just how long it takes for the bag to deteriorate but I would think it would be fairly quick.

I feared that with each start and stop it would be very noticeable; I canít tell that itís even in there. At cruising speed it seems to have smoothed out the vibration that I had somewhat. I would like for my ride to be somewhat smoother yet but hey, itís still a 1-ton 4X4 truck how smooth can it get? The product seems to work and itís less expensive than having the tires re-balanced a lot.

Another thought isÖ.. this might be a good solution for balancing the whole hub assembly. I would think with the way this works that it would help compensate for anything thatís out of balance not just the tires! What do you think Andy of Inland RV?

I may have it put in my camper wheels later on as well.

As per "Apple 1" the Equal people state that their product will not take care of unbalanced hub and drums.
