200,000 KMs ON THE DRIVE TYRES! G’day folks – You know, when you’re working hard, and then something happens that makes you feel like it’s all worthwhile??
You get a message like this – “Hi Simon, Mal McCosh here, I bought a full set of Atlas Balance Rings off you last year, and I was just tagging a mate on your clip. 200,000 kms on the last set of drive tyres! B-Double Stock Crates, 160,000 on steer tyres.
They were Goodyear drive tyres, best before was 160,000 kms with Michelin drives, the rubber compound seems to change all the time, even with same brand tyres.
I can’t recommend them high enough, cheers Mal McCosh. ”( @Mallee Boy Pty Ltd)…
Bloody legend mate! Getting a comment like that is icing on the cake! This is exactly what we say to our customers, don’t just fit out the steers, save money on the drives too. This is a perfect example of the harshest conditions carting stock on rough roads and still getting huge life out of your tyres.

Peter Shiells of @P J Shiells Transport from Woolsthorpe ( near Warrnambool) in Victoria has been running Atlas Balance Rings on his Freightliner. Says Peter, “ I bought the original set 18 months and put them on a truck to get a bit of extra tyre life, as the tyres were down. They should have been coming off soon, but with the Atlas Balance Rings, I got an extra 10,000 kms out of them. I was impressed so I fitted Atlas Balance Rings to my new Mack Superliner rig at WestVic tyre service at Mortlake.
“I’m a single driver operator, like many of you, and the roads here can be poor ( to be polite). I carry livestock most of the time, with a bit of general freight, hay, and concrete road and structure. I swapped out the tyres for Super Singles and with the rings, I noticed straight away the difference in the handling of the truck, one trailer seems to ride much better compared to before. I’m impressed with the way Simon looks after any warranty issues, and I’ve been chatting to some mates about Atlas Balance Rings. It’s only been 6 weeks, and I cant wait to see the difference in tyre wear, fuel savings and hopefully less fatigue for me.“

Brendan Jackson, Wilken Bulk Haulage.
“Tyre Pressures play a big role in the life of steer tyres. Inflation too. Depending on the roads you are driving, dropping PSI can drop km off your tyres. Balanced tyres will give you a better ride than a soft tyre, and they don’t slow you down. Balance Rings make a hell of a difference, and you’ll notice that in the steering wheel.”
Brendan Jackson is a thinking driver, a workshop supervisor who carefully notes wear and tear on tyres and fuel consumption; and often takes the wheel himself as a relief driver for Wilken Grain Haulage – @WilkenGroup Brendan’s father-in-law owns Wilken, and in addition, they have our own fuel station and contract with fuel carriers. Brendan, says – “we just haven’t stopped since Covid.”
“I first found out about Atlas Balance Rings at the Brisbane Truck Show. We had an old fashioned habit of using balance bags in city-use tyres. Well, I’m not a tyre expert, but ever since I put Atlas Balance Rings on my own Mack 2006 LT Superliner, I noticed the difference. “
“As a test, I fitted Atlas Balance Rings; didn’t tell the drivers; but paid a lot of attention to the running gear and their comments. One driver only got 1.5 km down the road, and rang and asked me ‘What did you do to my truck? All the chatter has gone out of it ! I also put a set of Atlas Balance Rings on my fuel truck at 6 am, and by 2 pm I had the driver call me, and say “Geez this is good !”
“So I proceeded to balance the rest of the steers in the fleet. It’s interesting – whatever issue you have with the truck the balance rings makes it easier to identify. I rotate tyres every 20,000kms for driver comfort and because I’m getting 150,000 plus km out of tyres that previously only lasted to 125,000 km. I also noticed drive tyres settled in quicker, and a smoother drive as well. We noticed wobbles were cut in half. ”
Nothing better than Happy Customers, and this is high praise indeed from Andy Campbell of Campbell’s Transport Services Pty Ltd. “BEST MONEY YOU’LL EVER SPEND. The reduction in fatigue from vibrations makes them worth it before even considering the cost savings! “ WE OFFER UP TO 50% EXTRA TYRE LIFE – EURO, ASIAN or US Truck, 100-day-money-back-guarantee.

“G’day Simon, just thought I’d shoot you a message as to how my Atlas Balance Rings are going now I’ve got the truck issues finally sorted. The first set of STEER TYRES since problems sorted, are now at 135,000 KMS and STILL GOING STRONG. I will let you know the end km when I have to replace them – as a rule with steer tyres over the last 30 years, I usually get between 90,000 and 120,000 km – so already PRETTY BLOODY HAPPY! “ Cheers Thurlo (Adam Thurling)

We’re driving with Darren Powell to Moree, NSW. “Wherever the loads take me to that’s where I go, I’m more comfortable with my Atlas Balance Rings – they’ve taken the shake and vibration out of the whole truck, making it a nicer truck to drive, I can sit back and relax and cruise with the machine. I just love it, she sits straight on the road. I’ve been asked about Atlas plenty of times.. Just put them on mate! Simon’s the man, never have a drama, more than impressed”.

Darren Powell – “I can’t believe the difference they’ve made, putting them on the steer did improve the ride and took the niggling vibration away, now the whole truck has improved! “
We are out at Findlay’s at Bundamba, thank you Findlay’s for recommending and fitting Atlas Balance Rings. A few years ago Darren Powell had me fit Atlas Balance Rings just on the steers on this good looking beast, and he’s never had to balance the front end since. Dazz came back to fit out the drive trailer rings. Look how easy it is. Today Darren contacted me, coming through Moree saying “Simon I’m driving a new truck, I should have done it years ago! “- that’s right, the vehicle is 4 years old and drives better than brand new! Australian-Made, Australian-Owned. It’s ATLAS, It’s BALANCED! How many EXTRA KMS could you be getting out of your tyres?? https://atlasbalance.com.au/ | call 1300 228 527 or 13002ATLAS #atlasbalancerings #trucktyres #kenworth
“Hello Simon, just thought I would give you a little feedback. I had your Atlas Balance Rings on my whole truck and trailer front to back. So far, I have done about 10,000kms, it’s hard to say trying to remember what it felt like before, but it feels very smooth running down the Highway. I look forward to putting a whole new set of tyres on and seeing what they do, thanks for your help, regards Russell. “ Russell of Muller Tippers and Bobcat Hire.

“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%.
A 30% increase in tyre life is a great saving to the bottom line, which was very encouraging, as well as improving the driveability of the unit and the flow-on effect in helping with the driver fatigue issues that we all need to deal with. We are pleased to be associated with the Atlas Balance Company and we are looking forward to more tyre cost savings in the future.”
“We have your ( Atlas Balance) 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. The tyre’s wear more evenly and you don’t get that annoying shimmy at certain speeds when the tyres are half worn especially when you are on and off dirt roads.
The Crane trucks are especially hard on steer tyres and this is where we have seen the most improvement with at least 20-25% extra kilometres. The DAF XF105 was a good truck on steer tyres anyway, but we are seeing a 10% increase in the kilometres on it. We Run Michelin Tyres on both Steer and Drive of our linehaul fleet, and BF Goodrich on our local fleet, the cost savings over the fleet on Steer tyres has basically paid for itself.
The best part is the fact is that you get to use all the tyre tread instead of having to replace it when it is only half worn and the shoulder is gone or you get those uneven ripples through the case.”
“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. 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. “
“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 I hadn’t driven it myself yet I took it for a ride the next day and noticed how smoother a drive on our country roads it was hence why we put in another order to fit out the fleet. A few months on and we have a flat even wear on the tyres for a change.”
“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. It’s truly a great product that we fitted to the vehicles saving in tyre life and downtime. “
