SAVE UP TO 50% ON YOUR TYRE LIFE
The Atlas Balance Company is an Australian company servicing the Australian trucking industry with a range of uniquely developed, locally engineered, high-quality wheel balancing products to meet the demands of our harsh and unforgiving Aussie roads.
On The Fly Wheel Balancing
The liquid metal in the balancing ring counters any light/heavy spots in the wheel assembly constantly.
Reduced Wheel Shimmy
By counteracting balancing issues, the system will alleviate vibration in steering components and the cab.
Increased Tyre Life Up To 50%
With minimal vibration and "tyre bounce", uneven scalloping and tyre wear is reduced, now the tyres will last longer
Improved Vehicle Handling
With evenly balanced wheel assemblies & reduced vibration through steering components, handling is improved.
Reduces Driver Fatigue
Now that handling is improved, it's easier for the operator to steer the vehicle, resulting in less fatigue when
Reduced fuel consumption
Unbalanced tyres put more stress on the engine of your vehicle, since the resistance created by the imbalance forces the engine to work harder
How It Works
How Our Truck Wheel Balancing Technology Works
CENTRIFUGAL FORCE is created by a rotating tyre and wheel. When that is out of balance; the liquid weight fluid – that is a liquid metal, which is free-moving within the ring, moves to positions along the ring to exactly offset any light and heavy spots; thereby eliminating the vibration and creating equilibrium within the rotating mass.
When positioned, centrifugal force holds the LIQUID METAL in that position until a different vibrational resonance pattern develops from tyre wear or from stones, mud or ice sticking to the tyre or wheel with every rotation, which instantly forces the fluid to its new equilibrium positions.Read More
Continual – Instant – Dynamic self-adjustment
The Atlas Balance System will precisely, instantly and dynamically self-adjust to tyre and wheel imbalance, because nature MUST have equilibrium, and natural forces will act on the counterbalancing fluid to eliminate vibrational resonance and disequilibrium.

Mick Newton has now fitted out the entire fleet
Meet Mick Newton. His team fitted out both a Kenworth and a Volvo from their fleet with the Atlas Balance Rings some time ago. When they got positive feedback from their drivers, and they realised how well the trucks were driving, they came back to us, and have now fitted out the entire fleet. Mick has told us that they’re totally different trucks to drive and operate, he’s very pleased with how they’re running.
So no matter where your truck originates from the USA or Europe – we have Balance Rings to suit. Why not try out these Balance Rings on your truck? We provide a 𝟭𝟬𝟬 𝗗𝗮𝘆 𝗠𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘆 𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗚𝘂𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗲, so feel free to give this Aussie-made product a go, and feel the difference.
Jason, Nightingales Transport, less wear & tear on the rig and the body!
Here is a customer we’ve featured before. Jason of Nightingales Transport. He bought himself this new KW K200 a while back. He took the new rig back to the dealer three times within the first year due to the vibration and shaking in the steering, but didn’t get anywhere. They said there was nothing wrong with it, so he bought the rings for the steers and drives and hasn’t looked back!
Jason has said he was going to consider fitting out the trailers now due to the extra tyre life he was saving along, with wear and tear on the rig as well as his own body. Remember, if it’s Atlas, it’s Balanced.
Mathew’s Kenworth gets 47.89% increase in steer tyre life
This Kenworth belongs to Mathew, who purchased his Balance Rings a good while ago, and that was a full fit-out on the truck, Steers and Drives. Now, Mathew is a numbers man, and when Simon caught up with him, he had all the stats and figures about his tyre mileage ready to go! Let’s run through it here:
Matt is used to getting 90,000 – 120,000 km from his steers. After fitting the Balance Rings, he got 177,471 km out of his previous set of steers without rotation or counter-weight balancing. That’s a 𝟰𝟳.𝟴𝟵% 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝘆𝗿𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲! The current set of steers now has 100,000 km on them, still, plenty of tread, and they’re wearing evenly. They’ve been rotated once only.
Darren Powell’s Kenworth feels like a brand new truck
Darren Powell has been a customer since 2019. His Kenworth has been back to the dealer a couple of times due to vibration and shaking through the truck, where they told him nothing was wrong with it.
He soon purchased a set of Steer Axle Balance Rings, fitted them up, then called Simon to tell him he felt like he was driving a brand new truck. Then he grabbed a pair of Balance Rings for his K200 as well. In a video we published in August 2020 ( https://fb.watch/1nTxfjcmKH/ ) you will see that he has 100,000 km on the steers here and you can see how well the steer tyre is wearing.
There’s still plenty of life left in the left-hand steer (right one had a blowout & was replaced). Darren is getting great tyre life, the truck is smoother and easier to handle – what’s not to like about this Aussie made product?!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Active Balancing?
Spin Balancing while you drive. Atlas Balance will not only balance your tyres, Atlas Balance will balance your wheel assembly being the wheel and hub.
How does it work?
With centrifugal force, the liquid will always find the light side.
What is the Liquid?
A. Recycled Liquid Metal , it will not Freeze or Boil at any temperature that you will drive at and can find a precise unbalanced area in the tyre by as much as a micro second.
Will the liquid wear out?
A. NO, Liquid Metal is the ONLY non Frictional liquid known to mankind that will not wear, therefore allowing it to outlast the life span of the vehicle and can be recycled onto other vehicles over and over again.
Is the Liquid Metal a hazard?
ONLY if it is ingested, inhaled, gargled or injected – and who plans to do that?
What they say
Our commitment to sustainability helps us reduce waste and share the benefits with our customers. It permeates the way we do business, driving us to innovate.
In the years working with the Atlas Balance Company team we have done many different trials on different pieces on equipment in our fleet. We have found that tyre wear with the Atlas Balance System has improved the tyre life by up to 30%.
We have your products on three of our prime movers. One is a DAF XF 105, second is a T401 Kenworth Crane truck, the third is a T404 SAR Kenworth Crane truck. Over the last 18 months these three units have had improved tyre wear and steering.
We currently have our fleet of UD and Volvo curtain sider trucks running Atlas Balance Company plates and we are very happy with the results.
Given the condition of some of the roads we travel on wheel balancing is an issue, before fitting the balance rings drivers regularly complained of steering shake or shudder.
We started by putting a set of balance rings on just one of the Kenworth B doubles running super singles. The driver came back two days later asking what we had done to the truck as it simply held onto the road better.
Since our trucks are on and off quarry roads every day our tyre life span is restricted compared to others. After fitting a set of balance rings to the vehicles the change has been amazing both in handling ability and tyre longevity.
