Centramatic wheel balancer?

Hello all, hope all are doing well as we start a new year. Lets hope this year will be better than the last!

I have to get new tires for the Alpine and found these Centramatic wheel balancers and want to know if anyone has put them on their Alpine?

If so how do you rate them?

I use them - on my motorcoach and on my 4x4 (with the oversize tires).
The coach rides smooth as glass, but my truck has a bad vibration between 40 and 45 mph.

I'll need to take the truck somewhere to have the tires balanced/checked. If a rebalancing solves the problem, then that would show that the Centramatic can't balance out everything. Of course the tire balancing could be fine and something else is wrong.

I have had them on front and rear, since the coach was new. No problems to date!

Part numbers?

Thanks for all the info! Since I don't know the measurements of the wheel or brake size can anyone supply part numbers for the correct balancers? 2008 34FDS
