Default Integy Truecut Light Tire Truer

I just got a Team Integy Truecut Light Tire Truer in the mail today and i was pleasantly surprised. Only $89.99 for this truer from Tower Hobbies, i dont think you can go wrong. This truer is much more precise compared to the Team Cobra Deluxe Tire Truer. I barrowed a friends cobra truer and it lacked precision....all four tires were not the same. In addition, integy truer is $35 less than the similar OFNA truer. If you are only truing touring car tires and need a truer, IMHO this is it. It even comes with the touring car adaptor so there is nothing more to buy.

I had a lot of trouble with the little slide rails getting gummed up by tire shavings. Once I started running rubber tires, I pulled that assembly off and used the truer to de-bead tires, which works out really well.

I have been using this truer for about 3 years, its really great! I also experienced the sliders becoming gummed up with shavings. However, if you cut a piece of lexan and make a shield slightly wider than the carriage this stops the shaving from getting to the bars.

Does this truer have adapters for 1/12th and 1/10th pan car foams? I'm looking for a descent budget truer.

Just found this :

COMMENTS: Wheel hex is for touring car only, and the wheel adapter is not interchangeable.

The answer is no ...
