The Centramatic option has some history Larry. I have seen fleets of split wheels using them. Those guys don't spend money on short hop freight rigs and garbage trucks unless they are sold that the value outweighs the cost. Even then though, it amazes me that there isn't a pile of fleet maintenance records to support the claims. I read heat test stuff that would indicate improved longevity, less heat = longer life, but there must be countless millions of miles on these critters. Why so little back up for the guys that want to see savings on paper before they pull the trigger?
I have to admit that I have never seen a Centramatics on a bike. I would like to see it. Does it take away from the visual presentation of the wheel?
