I just bought some to put on my '03 dually with 22.5s. They made a noticeable difference on the rear with vibes. When I initially installed the wheels, I couldnt tell exactly where the imbalnce was, so I put Centramatics on the rear first. I also messed around with different air pressures, finally liking 50psi in fronts and 45-47psi in rears. Only had wheels on two weeks now, but the setup is getting better. I definately would use the Centramatics on all larger-than-normal wheel/tire setups. Gonna get my fronts soon; won some on eBay this morning.

I know of guys I work with that put a certain amount of air-soft ammo in theirs. There is a calculation somewhere to tell you how much to use. Just be careful some of them are very abbrasive towards certain alloys.
