Do I need UCAs??

I just got billy 5100s, and after I got the lift on the trcuk drove perfectly, no wandering or anything up to 80mph, but after I got new tires and got it aligned it started to shake, is this the tire fault or do I need new UCAs?

tires may need to be rebalanced. what setting do you have the 5100's at. UCA's are recmmended for anything over 2".

definitly get a roadforce balance done, little pricey(25$/wheel) but well worth it.

its a different type of wheel balancing in which they find the heavy spots in the tire and wheel and sit the tire on the wheel in such a way that the heavy spots cancel eachother out and you get a better balanced tire/wheel.

Mucher cheaper to try and correct it via road force balance than to drop 400-600 on a set of UCAs.

can you get away with road force balancing and not the regular balancing? or are they too different and still require regular balancing?

x2. UCA's really have nothing to do with shaking/vibs anyway.

you would think they would do it without asking because if its more expensive, then they'll make more money... either way, road balanced or not, my tires ride smooth so its all good!

OP I believe I have the same wheels and they dont make hub centric models. We both have lugcentric, I havent had a problem but I think you might be having issues with that.

When are UCAs actually beneficial for a truck, i see above someone said 2" then it helps
But when do you want to make the purchase of these?

(I thought about making a thread but maybe this will work)

If sterling wheel shake You may need rebalance the tires or check lug nuts because lug nuts must go in all the way .
