Cool Rob Peter Pay Paul?

Okay folks, I've got the green light to get only ONE of these two options for now. Torn 50/50 on this one (but I think I know what the outcome will be )

I can either purchase a set of Centramatics to help tire wear/vibration from the Mud Grapplers (which 2 of them have thrown their weights but don't vibrate beyond anything concerning).

OR

I can purchase the Gen II WW and replace the stocker.

Hmm... Decisions, decisions

^I'm actually on board with that. I put too many miles on to deal with a shaky truck. I'd be going with the wheel balancers for sure.

You guys are no fun I was expecting yall to say "GO FOR THE WW!" but the responsible half of me already told the wife that I was getting the Centramatics... was just hoping to get pulled back to the "fun zone" and tell her WOOPS I think I'll get the WW.

Well lemme see where this goes (if anywhere). Not many folks are hitting on this thread.

ZMANN: Ive heard some downer stories about the product but have read many more good than bad. Guess I'll just have to see what happens if I pull the trigger on em.

Until then, !!!

As much fun as the WW 2 would be, a truck that's not causing other wear issues caused from a vibration is probably more sensible -

Well, damnit. As much as I'm on the road for work (6K miles/month) I think I am going to invest in those Dyna Beads for my trucks. I hate throwing a weight and having a vibration going down the road.
