Equal or weights is what I've used. I prefer Equal.

I have 22.5s on my current and last MH. I've bought new Michelin's 3 times and have never been told not to balance them. Monoco, the original one, and Prevost deliver their product with balanced tires. New Prevosts comes from the factory with Centramatics. I would think a slightly out of balance rear tire on a heavy coach may not be felt. I would bet it would be felt on the front. The Michelin instructions previously posted are to prevent out of round not out of balance. Personally, I would balance any tire running at highway speeds. It doesn't cost much.

With equal do you have to use a special valve core so it won't stick in the seat of core

Yes, the cores have a protective screen over them. If you don't use them you may develop a slow leak.
