If you decide to use the balancing beads, they require specific valve stems, the standard stems might clog up.

Decided to go the route of wheel balancers instead of beads. Spent about an hour on the phone with a very helpful gentleman (Jerry) from Centramatic yesterday. Aside from answering all my questions and then some he turned me on to hitchsource.com. You can get a better price ordering from hitchsource than ordering directly from Centramatic, due to HS being a top tier distributor for CM. Also ordering directly from CM they tack on a fright charge where HS does not charge shipping on any order over $99.

For tires I took Waiter21's advice and asked the local RV dealer what they use. Samson GL283A was the answer so I ordered 6 new ones and will have them installed when the balancers get here. Hoping by next Wednesday as I have a fly fishing gathering next weekend in Eastern WA that I'd like to take the MH to. $1600 clams out the door for the tires. The balancers were a bit more than I expected because you have to buy a set for the front axle and a set for the rear axle (different models of course) together $345 delivered. But ordering from hitchsource, no fright charge and no sales tax.
