Balance those wheels..

For those of you that have not balanced their wheels - I assume you also don't care about the warranty on the Dexter axle.

Any damage caused by "hub imbalance" is specifically excluded.
I checked with Dexter to be sure I was understanding what that meant and here is their response

..."Since Dexter Axle does not manufacture or sell wheels and tires any damage caused by said items would not be covered under Dexter Axle's limited warranty. This includes balance, installation, fastener torque or proper application..."

So - get your wheels balanced!


Retired from Orbital Machine Works.
Where is Jim now? Here.

Jim, Thanks for this info.! Always appreciate preventive maintenance ideas, especially one like this that is applicable to a potentially expensive repair.

Balancing trailer tires also help with the proper wearing of them. One dealer told us not to balance it was a waste of time. Balanced anyway and the trailer handles better.
