Counteract Balancing Beads, the manufacturer of the industry’s premium internal tire balancing product, along with the award-winning Counteract Stud Cleaning tool is proud to introduce a new product to its already exciting line up of wheel products.

What is a Counteract Centering Sleeve?

A Counteact Centering Sleeve is a patent pending wheel centering system that works in conjunction with your OEM style two-piece flange nuts. The unique self-sizing & non-corrosive inserts are made to take-up the gap between the 22mm stud and the 26mm wheel opening, re-aligning the wheel to the TRUE CENTER of the hub bearing.

Over time, the pilots on the hub can lose tolerances originally intended from the factory, causing an offset between the wheel and the hub bearing.

Why choose a Counteract Centering Sleeve?

At a fraction of the cost of competitive brands, Counteract Centering  Sleeves wheel centering inserts promote proper lug nut clamping force, counteracting runout that can lead to dangerous wheel “clocking”
and potential wheel-off conditions.

Just one Counteract Centering Sleeve services all hub-piloted wheels with 22mm studs, including: Steer Wheels, Drive Wheels, Steel Wheels & Aluminum Wheels.
