The Park Tool TS-2.2 Professional Wheel Truing Stand is the one to choose for heavy shop use. Alternatively, if you do your own wheel work at home, this is the one you'll want if you appreciate high quality tools and settle for nothing less than the best.The TS-2.2 accepts wheels up to 29" with or without the tire removed. Both axle-holding uprights move simultaneously, always centering your wheel within the rim calipers, regardless of hub width. The calipers and caliper arm are spring-loaded to prevent jamming with badly out-of-true wheels. It will even accept a four inch wide rim, so if you have a Pugsly, you're in luck. The TS-2.2 also comes with composite caliper tip covers to protect your rims from scratches as you dial in the wheelbuild.The Park Tool TS-2.2 Truing Stand is made of heavy-duty, chrome plated steel with nylon bushings at all the pivot points. It can be bench-mounted or held in a vise.

Love this stand, i have heard many people complain about the accuracy of this stand,What I have come to realize that its the wheels not the stand,I true alot of wheels and most of the axles are never perfect,so i put the wheel in and rotate the axle in the stand till its somewhat centered,also i have have i have much better results not using the plastic jaw protecters ,hard to believe but i never use them any more,the centering gauges they sell are worthless dont waste your money get a digital dial indicator and a dished wheel.So people must realize when the stand is properly adjusted its never at fault,its the bent axles found on most used bike today.
