A balanced bus – little people get a better ride too

A balanced bus means little people get a better ride too.

G’DAY FOLKS! Simon here from the Atlas Balance Company. A change of speed today as we meet up with Mark from CHINCHILLA Christian College who has been watching us for a while, contemplating, and now has FITTED THE BUS all the way through ON STEERS and DRIVES. Is what all the TRUCK DRIVERS are saying is true? Absolutely yes, we can SAVE YOU UP TO 50% on your TYRE WEAR.

You’ll see here the Atlas Balance Rings are balancing the whole tyre and wheel assembly regardless of the speed, as Mark drives on concrete and bitumen out to Dalby and then out yonder on that bumpy road out to Chinchilla.

This is called a Euro Asian Balance Ring as this is an EURO BUS and it sits between the duals balancing both wheels. Do you balance just the front end of your family car? No! So of course, you will also balance the back end of your truck and buses, and importantly this rig is carrying – people…little people – so even more significant that the ride is smooth. If you don’t like the Rings, you simply give them back – you have a 365-day money-back guarantee and a 5-year warranty.

FULLY BALANCED RIGS and BUSES are just .. MORE SUCCESSFUL! And you can’t argue with success! Folks: that means LESS FUEL, LESS OUTLAY ON TYRES, happier healthier drivers, and more comfortable passengers.

Check out some of these industry icons who have their entire fleet fitted out with Atlas Balance Rings; Thompsons Cowra and Southern Refrigerated Transport; Harold Services, AJM Newcastle, S&J McMahon; Ford Haulage; Simpsons Fuel; Karger Commodities; Hando’s Tanker Hire; GC Coaches and the Taxibox Group to name just a few!   

If they can do it, so can you! 365 Day Moneyback Guarantee, and 5-year product warranty. Australian-made, Australia-Owned, Remember… it’s Atlas, It’s Balanced!

Balanced trailer wheels ‘sing’ together for the benefit of planet Earth.

So you take the family car – let’s say it’s a Toyota LandCruiser or a HiLux – in for a wheel balance and you say, ‘Mate, just balance the front two wheels, thanks!’

It’s unthinkable, right? And even more so when you consider the business end of a rig.
Many drivers start by balancing just the steers with Atlas Balance Rings and feel the difference immediately, so pretty soon they work out the benefits of balancing the steers and trailers too.
Nicholas Thompson from Thompson Transport started by putting a set of balance rings on just one Kenworth B double 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,” said Thompson. “Since I hadn’t driven it myself yet, I took it for a ride the next day and noticed how smoother a drive it was on our country roads, hence why we put in another order to fit out the whole rig and fleet. A few months on and we have a ( delete) flat, even wear on the tyres for a change.”

Gary Faulkner from Faulkner Carrying in Boonah has a fleet of UD and Volvo curtain sider trucks running Atlas Balance Company rings.

“We are very happy with the results,” said Faulkner. “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. Since fitting the rings this problem has been eliminated altogether, also removing the need for our tyre fitter to remove and balance steer tyres at least two times in the life of the tyre. The added bonus is that once you purchase the balance rings you have no more balancing costs as they will outlast most trucks.”

The math also makes sense. At about $250 per tyre for eight (or 16 or more) drive wheels, even a 25 per cent ( add) saving on tyre life can translate to a $750 saving on every $2000 spent on tyres – and Atlas Balance Company said most customers reported up to 50 per cent longer tyre life.
Fossil fuels are required to power trucks, but we can reduce the load on the planet where possible by using less fuel, less rubber and recycled materials safely.
When a driver is matched with the right tyre pressures and wheels that are aligned and balanced, the wheels sing together, drivers are safer and less weary and so is planet Earth.


Atlas Balance Company caught up with many of its customers at the Brisbane Truck Show and said drivers like Simon Savage, Marty Murphy and more were all seeing the benefits of balancing a whole truck for ride comfort and for diesel and tyre savings.

Atlas Balance Company said the subject of balance beads came up with many drivers it spoke to, specifically the impact of beads wearing the inside of the tyre, as well as beads getting caught in the seals allowing air to escape.

It said a completely encapsulated liquid system of balancing was by far the best solution, especially when recycled materials were used.

Folks, Simon here from the Atlas Balance Company – THIS BEAST IS BALANCED – even on the Steers! With a 365 Moneyback warranty and 5-year product guarantee, this 4900 rig is balanced on every axle all the way through and Hobbsy is now on his way to pick up two trailers. As we speak,  @Findlay’s have another Western Star being fitted all the way through even the trailers…

So, if you can’t grab me over the coming weeks, make sure you have a chat with Neil Findlay’s crew at @Findlays Tyre and Trade 56 Hawkins Cres, Bundamba QLD. As we say in Big Rigs, this month, you wouldn’t just balance the front of your car, so don’t do it to the truck!

Balancing out life at Gympie Music Muster

G’day from the GYMPIE MUSTER MUSIC FESTIVAL… We were here over the weekend, to have a bit of a break, as balance rings have been selling like crazy, particularly in New Zealand. Just last Thursday a whole pallet load, mostly Euro steers, went to Aaron in Auckland. I had the good fortune at the Muster of running into past customers and friends and making some new ones..  

This old girl you can see parked up behind me ( K200) has had Atlas Balance Rings fitted for some time…. One of the many good folks I shared a coldy with, was the owner Marty Murphy, a grain and fertiliser, in Gympie with his family from Caliope in Central Queensland.

He is one of Atlas Balance Company’s first customers, has been a great advocate and supporter, and passed on our information to many other drivers. Now he has 3 new rigs to be fitted out – American and Asian, and a trailer that needs to be fitted out all the way through.

Love Aussie Country Music and Gympie hospitality.

Hundreds of thousands of kms of extra tyre life

Simon from the Atlas Balance Company has a great story involving getting hundreds of thousands of extra kilometres out of your truck tyres. ” When I started supplying balance rings to Errol at @SRV, it was for just one rig. Now; 93 rigs are balanced with Atlas Balance Rings. I admire SRV. Of course, the fleet looks great with schmick shiny stuff, but it’s just as important for Errol too; to know how things are running on the inside. Matt, the Workshop Manager reports that they are now getting over 200,000 kilometres on the steers – that’s an extra 100,000 km! – So, they’ve been fitting out the drives as well. When you see these running down the road; think about how what you are running, the money you are spending on tyres, the mileage you’re getting, and how you feel are driving your rig feeling the rattling and shaking. For a small one-time fee – you may get an extra 100,000 kilometres of tyre life!

For Atlas, it’s just another typical Friday story. With a 5-year Warranty and 365 Day money-back Guarantee; It’s Atlas, It’s Balanced!
