Any out of balance condition in the wheel and tire
assembly creates uneven tire wear. These self-adjusting balancers bring
the tire and wheel assembly into perfect and continuous balance at
wheel speeds of 15 mph well before balancing becomes crucial to maximum
tire performance. Balance Masters® technology will eliminate the uneven
tire wear caused by tire imbalance.
Improve Handling and Safety!
Any out of balance condition in the wheel and tire assembly
creates uneven tire wear. These self-adjusting balancers bring
the tire and wheel assembly into perfect and continuous balance
at wheel speeds of 15 mphwell before balancing becomes
crucial to maximum tire performance. Balance Masters® technology
will eliminate the uneven tire wear caused by tire imbalance.
Balance Masters® provides better traction and improved
braking performance - regardless of road conditions as well as
offers a cost effective option to the job of balancing tires the
traditional way. Balance Masters® mounts directly
behind the wheel assembly.
Vibrational Resonance is the up and down vibration pattern
created by a rotating tire and wheel that is out of balance, forcing
the fluid (mercury) which is free-moving within the ring to positions along
the ring, which exactly offset any light and heavy spots, thereby
eliminating the vibration and creating equilibrium within the
rotating mass. Once properly positioned, Centrifugal Force holds
the fluid in that position unless a different vibrational resonance
pattern develops from tire wear or from stones, mud or ice sticking
to the tire or wheel, which instantly forces the fluid to its
new equilibrium positions.
In short, Balance Masters® precisely, continually, instantly
and dynamically self-adjusts to tire and wheel imbalance because
nature MUST have equilibrium, and natural forces will act on the
counter-balancing fluid to eliminate vibrational resonance and
However, when sudden braking or slowing occurs, the fluids
continue to spin for several revolutions until they slow down
to the wheel speed. Therefore, the fluid moving at high speed
and weighing nearly 28 ounces per wheel whip around the ring at
ten to fifteen revolutions per second. This weight, when pulled
by gravity over the top of the wheel, "falls" over the
front side of the wheel where the force is created which "pulls"
the wheel down onto the pavement-JUST WHEN YOU NEED IT TO-on sudden
braking over hard bumps or across sheets of water to create a
road-hugging controlability and anti-sway, anti-drift and anti-trailer
hop and bounce effect that amazes so many of our customers, especially
the flammable and chemical haulers who religiously put balance
masters on their trailer axles.
Balance Masters® utilizes the natural forces created by 20,000
plus pounds of truck rolling down the highway to reduce vibration
and create better handling in a very simple yet effective way.
The physics were understood and put to work as early as 1908 by
German scientists. American engineers perfected the idea in the
late 1930's and early 1940's when they needed to find a way to
perfectly, precisely and continuously balance a new-fangled invention...the
jet turbine engine.
The Balance Master is a tested and proven device which works
on long understood and basic engineering principles.
The major components of the Balance Masters® are the ring and
the fluid (mercury), both an integral part of what makes the balancer
work. Both work in cooperation and are precisely proportioned
in order for the physics to function properly.
