wicked wheel balancing?

Sooo after talking to a buddy of mine about getting my wicked wheel on. He strongly suggested I get it installed and balanced the "right" way. he was very weary to help me do it. And I know many of you on here have installed them with no problems. But if the price is right I might just do it for peace of mind you know? Just wanted to see what you all think.

I wouldn't worry about it... I can't imagine how he's going to balance it the "right" way without pulling the turbo itself, running it up to like 80,000rpm on some machine

I guess it's possible to get an out of balance assembly, and frankly I'm not sure how you'd know, But I AM sure that Borg Warner balances your new wheel as best as they can...

Get some exact details on how he'd be balancing, sound like BS to me

you do not need to get it balanced after installing a wicked wheel.

Why the heck would they sell an out of ballance wheel that spins at 80,000 rpm+? these are factory parts that were used on the older trucks right?

Right. Well, its the same thing anyway


The wheels are already balanced of course. On the backs of them you can see marks where metal was machined off of them in certain spots.
