Like I said you will get sworn statements all over the place. Do what ever makes you feel comfortable.

Hi WenWes,
I use two methods. Weights are used when the tires are mounted on the wheels. I purchased Centramatics at Centramatic for each wheel. After tens of thousands of miles the ride remains very smooth. Tire wear is also even all around and across the tread.

I balanced tires for many years in my youth and was a staunch believer in spin balancing. About four years ago I bought Centramatics for the rear of my Monaco Diplomat. Those tires wore perfectly for 35000 miles until I sold the coach. During that same time period, I had to replace the crap GoodYears on the front twice. The last time I went with Hankooks on the front and decided to give the beads a try. I was very impressed with the beads and will use them again.

Speaking of balancing, what about after adding extenders, etc to your valve stems. Need to rebalance or not enough weight to worry about?

Hi Dalez,
Not enough weight to worry about.

Same question when adding TSP systems (not internal)?

I was aways a bead critic. When I recently replaced the duals they used beads. Couldn't be happier they roll smooth as glass

Given that the beads need a filtered valve core, can one use dynabeads with the dually valve kits?

The Dynabeads do not need a filtered valve core because the beads are larger than the valve core.

I have read where they can damage the inside of a tire. They work good on the links (for some people) but are not to be used in tIres.
