Any body tried running Centramatic Balance rings on the 5 ton. Looking at them as a possible cure for my wobbly moment at 43 t0 47 mph. Any one have a part number for them or the wheel lug pattern specs ? Price seems reasonable roughly $200 for a steer wheel set .

Well contacted the manufacture explained pattern is 10 by 11.75. Still talking , problem on thier end is in under standing brakes. Can’t seem to get across five ton had wedge air brakes. They have it in thier mind that they have deuce style brake shoes. Still trying !

I run 1/2 gallon of coolant in the tires for balance, has worked great. Centramatic's work fine on the commercial trucks I've worked on.

The older 5 tons had the hydraulic brakes so that's probably what they are thinking of.

Best option, take the truck down to one of their distributors and measure it there/test fit.

Just going by memory I thought it was 11.25” bolt circle? Also don’t understand why the type of brake would matter other than maybe drum size, as well as wheel diameter?
