What is a Counteract Centering Sleeve?

A Counteract 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.

Each hub piloted wheel uses pilot pads that have tolerances originally intended from the factory, allowing some wheel movement, as well, these pilot pads can wear down overtime causing an offset between the wheel and the hub bearing. Counteract Wheel Centering Sleeves are designed to fill in that gap, providing a truly centered wheel.

Why choose a Counteract Centering Sleeve?

At a fraction of the cost of competitive brands, Counteract Centering Sleeves have proven to not affect clamping force or torque insuring the safety of your wheel end. With use of our sleeves they have proven to counteract runout that can lead to dangerous wheel “clocking” and potential wheel-off conditions.

Counteract Centering Sleeve services all hub-piloted wheels with 22mm studs, including: Steer Wheels, Drive Wheels, Steel Wheels & Aluminum Wheels. Each wheel must use a minimum of 3 sleeves, positions in a triangle formation, however, 5 is always recommended for extra security.
