turbo wheel upgrade

Im looking at buying a new wheel for my truck, my question is it worth it? I just got back into the diesel thing (totaled out my last psd) Ordering exhaust, intake or making one, probably a tw chip, and possibly diy injectors nothing too major for injectors though i dont wanna have to change the hpop. Oh i can get the wheel for 55 bucks

Go with any of the turbo wheels. There is no real big difference except for the price. However the one that dieselsite.com sells is the best of all since Bob designed it.

I've never heard of needing a balance for a different wheel, mechanically aslong as it's symmetrical it won't have any bad balance issues even if the weight is more or less to a degree.

The different form of "fins" on the aftermarket compressor wheels make me think otherwise on the balance issue as well, but a ton of people run them and no issues so I guess if it's out of balance with the new wheel, it's not out enough to hurt anything.

Ya that makes sense now that i think about it. I dont know much about the turbos, should it be rebuilt as long as ive got it out? Id rather do it right the first time, ive got 120,000 miles on the truck

Probably wouldn't hurt.

You could get the balance checked if you know somewhere to send it and want to pay for it.

Ditty rebuilt his turbo as of a few months ago, and his is doing fine.

Stroker, as long as it spins in the compressor housing and doesn't hit anything, you should be ok. And while your doing the wheel you should think about the housing also. To take care of the turbo surge. And the job is pretty simple, took me about an hour to do the wheel and housing.
