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 -

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.

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.
