Tire Balancing

Hi Everyone,

Just bought a used 2004 Newmar Mountain Aire. Dealer put new tires on it, but feel a slight rumble under the seat. Returned to tire dealer for rebalancing of rear tires. Still have slight vibration under seat, but not as much as before. Any suggestions as to next step? May try a different tire and alignment store to balance again. Thanks.

Had the same problem. The fix was to take rig to a truck tire shop with a electronic spin balance machine. The right equipment and operator made the difference. Costs a little more but well worth it.

Next step should be to break the beads and rotate the tires 180 degrees and then re balance. If that doesn't do it, then consider that the tire is going out of round at highway speeds. I had it happen to me with new tires.

The best balance is a spin balance while the tires and rims are mounted on the coach.

I will add, sometimes when tires are "re-mounted" balancing is much easier because the original bead-seating did not fit evenly on the rim. That uneven bead seat often happens because the person who did it was not paying close attention. Something as simple as missing a spot on the rim when applying bead lubricant is the cause.

Thanks everyone. The question I have is that the vibrations are sporatic. They happen off and on. I'm wondering if the balance was the issue if it would be 100% constant. Thanks.

Yup, I would think that balance problems would be constant! We have the beads in all our tires!

When I purchased my new tires from a sponsor on Irv2 they sent me the balance beads and the correct valve stems, all is good so far.

Been there, done that with the beads and powder.

Now I have Centramatics and will still have them when it's time for new tires or maybe even the next coach.

X3 on the Centermatic balancing rings, not only do they balance your tire and rim, but also your spindle, rotor and hub ASM.

I got my tires from a dealer that has a Hunter Force Match HD Balancer. There is a dealer locator on rights side of page linked above. In the Phoenix area I used Redburn Tire Company. Very smooth ride after they trued and balance my tires.
