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.
