Centramatic centrifugal balancing system

I'm thinking about purchasing the Centramatic centrifugal balancing system for my MH. I would appreciate hearing from anyone with first hand experience with these balancers who can give me their before/after impressions. How do they work for you? Any problems with the installation? Would you recommend them? etc. Thank you!

I have installed and used the Centramatic brand before. Excellent results. They work as advertised. Just understand that my experience was on a rock crawler Jeep and not on the motorhome. The reason I used them was that the Jeep would spin the tire on the wheel and make wheel weights useless. If you have a problem keeping wheels in balance then the Centramatics will correct the problem.

I used them on my past Ford F-450 4x4, worked like a champ. Well worth the money.

I too am considering the Centramatic's for the front of my MH. After putting new Bridgestones on last year, I have a vibration coming back through my steering wheel and I can also feel a bit of it through the front floor. I have Magnum Plus (will have to be removed if I put Centramatics on) in all 6 tires but still get the vibration between about 55-60 mph. Just put Koni FSD's on the front but did not see much improvement in the vibration....Real happy with the improvement in the ride tho.

I talked with the Centramatic folks and they felt their product would sure do the trick...and they do have a money back guarantee on them.

So, I would be interested in any other feedback anybody might have...as well as the Balance Master product if anybody has experienced them.

And Brad, please give us a report on yours.

We have had centramatics installed on our big trucks and the truck we used to pull our 5er (Peterbilt 387). They WORK, do a great job, save tires, smooth the ride and require no maintenance. I am a firm believer in them. just our experience. Gene
