Tire question

I am amazed at what a greet tool this forum is.

I am facing the dreaded tire decision. Currently running GY but will likely go back with Michelin due to the rivering. Alignment has been maintain and running 10% plus air pressure on fronts but rivering has occured on these 6 1/2 year old tires with 30k miles. Michelins also bothers me a little as well since I have blowned them out on other motorhomes in the past and the sidewall cracking issues seems to persist.

My question relates to balencing. Spin or bead. I have alway done spin but like the theory behind bead balencing. I would like a few responses from those that have gone with bead and if your were please with the results.

Thanks in advance.

I just had new tires put on my MH three months ago and went with beads and am very satisfied. I had a fellow put the tires on here at my house and he said beads was the best way to go in his opinion. As I said, I went with his suggestion and have been very happy with the beads. The coach rides smooth and I don't have to worry about losing a weight while on the road. I would recommend using the beads for balancing without hesitation.

Hope this helps a little.
