Sun-Tech Innovations, creators of the Balance Masters wheel-balancing system, has been awarded a five-year contract by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to maintain vehicles owned by the Dept. of Defense and other federal agencies.

Balance Masters is a self-adjusting wheel balancing system, which the company said can be installed on trucks as well as RVs, other vehicles and aircraft. Sun-Tech manufactures balancers for drive shafts, steers, duals and drives on heavy-duty trucks.

“Balance Masters is the only product of its kind that has been formally tested and approved by the U.S. military,” said Chris Gamble, owner of Sun-Tech. “We all know military vehicles need to perform flawlessly under extremely difficult conditions. If Balance Masters is good enough for the military, it is good enough for fleets, private vehicles and virtually anything that spins.”

According to the company, Balance Masters utilizes a unique balancing system that has no sand, oils, steel balls or pre-balancing to maintain tires for optimum performance. The system is not affected by hot or cold weather and comes with a 10-year factory warranty with a 100-day unconditional purchase price refund. 

The system uses fluid mercury to actively compensate for any out-of-balance condition and vibration. The devices eliminate wear patterns and only require a single installation, saving vehicle owners from countless trips and additional costs for repeated rebalancing, the company stated.
