We don't even have our MH yet but my research on the Centramatic balancers was all good. That's what I'll probably get when the time comes. It may depend on who is having some kind of a deal at the time.

If you have the bucks, go the centramatic route. They are lifetime with great customer support and lots of dealers throughout the country.

I ran them on my big trucks and my Prevost. Don't use them now because I simply do not use my MH that much anymore.

Note: You will still get a little shake if the coach has been sitting for awhile whenh you first start out. It will disappear in a short while.

I've tried the beads and at least mine didn't start to balance the tire/wheel until I got over 35 mph. The Centramatic method starts at a lot lower speeds. The beads made the steering wheel almost jump out of my hands. I even had better luck with match balancing with no weights on the wheel.

I have been using the Dyna Beads that specifically come out of Rochester NY in all 6 of my coach tires and my 4 trailer tires.

I have been running these for 35,000 miles and I haven't had any problems whatsoever. They are GREAT!

The greatest thing about Dyna Beads is that whenever you get mud or something stuck to the tire temporarily, the Dyna Beads will compensate for the junk until to has been removed.

The beads will fall to the bottom of the tire when stopped. Then they will redistribute themselves as needed each time you get to about 25-35 mph.

The beads will NOT correct any major manufacturing problems with any tire. If a tire is bouncing or causing vibration or shake in your steering wheel at low speeds 25-35, like one poster stated, then the tires have some major problems going on with them.

I will always have the Dyna Beads as they are easy, quick, and constantly working to keep things rolling smoothly down the road.

I had Dyna Beads placed on my new tires about 3 years ago. No problems so far.
They work great..........

I put them in my truck, liked how they worked and put them in all 6 large 22.5" RV tires. No problems after 40,000 miles over a 2 yr span.

I've had both DynaBeads and Centramatics. The DynaBeads balance better because they ride at the edges of the tires, which gives them the maximum balancing centrifugal force effect for any given weight. The Centramatics are confined to a much smaller arc, ie the edges of the device itself, which has a lesser balancing effect.

I must be reading something wrong on the website. My tires are 29580R22.5 and it says they require 12 oz. per tire, which their price sheet shows at $25.10 per 12 oz. bag!

Dynabeads do thier best to balance the tire. Sadly, they do not do much to balance the wheel, tire, rotor or drum assembly. Cents have enough weight and location to help or eliminate all of these problems.

I put the beads in my front tires about 5 years ago and was very happy.

Last month I purchased 8 new tires and had them put in every tire (305/70/22.5) and that made a huge change. I never balanced the rear tires before so that most likely made the difference bigger. So smooth now.

As for drums and rotor, I do believe that they are balanced from the factory. Looking at mine I have seen weights on them?
