Centramatic balancers

Curious to know if any of my fellow CC owners are using Centramatic wheel balancers and, if so, are you satisfied they work well.

I use them on my Jeep. When off reading it no uncommon to chunk a tire or slip on the rim causing tires to come out of balance. Centramatics work and mitigate the problem.

I installed a set on the front wheels of my 2001 Monaco Dynasty, 38 ft about 3 years ago and I am now a true believer in their benefits. The tires had been spun balanced when they were installed new about 5 years ago. The tires did not feel as they were out of balance, but there were some sections of various roads that i was not sure if there was a balance issue or just poor surface conditions of the highways.

So after doing a lot of research i decided to install a set of these dynamic wheel balancers on the front tires so there would be no questions about any balancing issues and to give me added peace of mind. Even though I don't feel there was really a balance issue with the tires, I am extremely happy with the results and i am now convinced that the coach does handle better and feels smoother, even on rougher highways.

Hope this helps and Happy RV'g.

Jack

All with Centramatics.
And all wheels were balanced when the new tires were installed.

Like our ride very much.

Best,

Thanks folks for the feedback. I plan to order a set before my appointment next week to get the beads out of the front tires and the Centramatics installed.

Centramatics asked me if I have 15" or 16 1/2" drum brakes on the front axle. I am not sure so wonder if any of you know the answer?
