I had a shimmy in the mid to rear of the coach and narrowed it down to a wheel out of balance. Took the coach to my truck tire service and became acquainted with Counteract Balancing Beads www.counteractbalancing.com. Once installed in the tire it is good for life and takes the place of wheel weights. Can even be transferred from tire to tire when a change is made. In the 40 mile ride home I can feel the difference already. Not expensive and they don't even have to remove the wheels from the coach. Goes in with air pressure through the valve body.

Depending on the tires you have installed you may have just voided the warranty on your tires. Some tire manufacturers claim the beads degrade the interior of the tires and thus void the warranty.

Checked it out first and such is not the problem. No problem with the warranty situation from Michelin.

About "Never Balancing" your wheels again, well sir, that dog just ain't gonna hunt!

I use "Equal" and my wheels are indeed balanced however I am absent wheel weights.
