Just to chime in from another prospective. Possibly bent rim, also check all u- joints, yokes and slip joints for play...

I still say Centramatic Wheel Balancers is the way to go.

If you are talking about Centramatic, yes, front and rear. I have the IFS with front disc brake and on the front they mount on the outside of the rim, not between rim and hub. Polished stainless steel and look great. Had them a year and 15K+ and they are great.

he said it comes and goes i dont think its tire related. check the drivetrain you may have a bearing going bad. oily mess on inside of one or both tires is a sign. spin balance might help but it shouldnt shake once and then not.

When the Beads are added, do you remove the weights from pervious balancing or leave them on the tire?

I leave the weights on and see what happens. I haven't removed any yet, but if I develop a shimmy, then the lead weights come off.

At 2025 miles on a 2014 Fleetwood Expedition with all kinds of vibrations, front, rear, seat, wheel, etc. Three so-called truck tire dealers, two new tires, two new rear wheels, three times balancing, some with beads, some with lead and continuing vibrations, I finally brought the coach to a Freightliner Repair Dealer who sent the coach to an alignment shop. Brand new front Goodyear tires needed truing/shaving and on the coach balancing. They performed a front end alignment and adjusted Camber. Front end vibrations gone. Still had that familiar vibration in the seat. Next they trued/shaved the rears and rebalanced. Wow! SMOOTH! It seemed that the tires had flat spots from sitting up before I bought it and/or the Goodyears are ALL out of round, even the two new ones on the front. I drove over 5K with all the shimming and shaking and vibrating. Now I can relax and enjoy the smooth roads of Louisiana. Now that's a joke.

If you had ordered the authentic Ceramic Dyna Beads from Innovative Balancing they would have told you for motorcycles and scooters YES but for cars and SUV's NO. They don't mention anything about trucks and RV's. A call to them would clear it up quickly.

Dyna Beads FAQ

I had my weights removed and the Dyna Beads have been in my tires for over 6 years now.

Love them!

Hi Everybody,

Finally got my rv in to get vibration checked. Was told my driveshaft bearings needed replacing. Haven't driven yet, but hope it is all fixed. Thanks everyone.

The Hunter balancer really works. It fixed a front end balance issue we had on our last rv. However I put Centramatics on our new to us mh. Love them.

I received my centramatic balancer last night. The plan is to put them on this weekend, front and back.

I will give a testimonial to Customer Service at Centramatics. I have been chasing a shake in the front end since new. After installing the Centramatic all around and making little to no difference I sent an e-mail to them for advice. The next morning I got a call from Jerry and he spent over an hour discussing my problems and offering solutions. He acted like I had bought 1000 sets rather than one.

While I am just now getting started on finding out what is wrong due to other pressing issues hopefully I am on the right path. I do have some experience with the Centramatics on a triple digits 18 wheeler a long time ago...and that's all I'll say.
