I'll stick with the beads. I use the Crosman High Impact AirSoft BB's from Wal-mart (about $5.00 per tire).

It's your money, you spend it for whatever you want! As for me, they do the job well. Just don't see any reason to change!

Our first set of tires with this coach, included all 8 tires/wheels being spin balanced, and we have Centramatics on each axle.

Replaced the steers about 6 months ago to an sudden encounter with pot holes!. Again had the tires spin balanced, and retained the Centramatics.

Will be doing the other 6 tires in the near future, and will probably not balance the drives or tags this time around, as the Centrmatics will be retained.

I always make it a point to pay close attention with a new set of tires the first few hundred miles. If I notice any out of round/egg condition, or feel the tag or drive are not as smooth as I prefer - I'll then go ahead and have the tires balanced too.

Tires are on coaches for 5-10 years, depending upon the owners preference for replacement schedule. Even at 5 years, the cost of a spin balanced spread out over that period - is not that much of a hit!

Noting wrong with the beads, they do a fine job. And as some have noted, some are worthy of being transferred to new tires too.

Best to all, be safe, have fun,
