This will interfere with the ability of EQUAL Tire Performance to optimize the given tire in the way that the tire dealer or fleet had intended when installing the product. Simply, this means that although EQUAL Tire Performance will never damage the tire in any way, if it is in contact with large amounts of water, it cannot perform its job. Again, it is important to reiterate, that in most cases, moisture will evaporate due to the heat build up in normal driving, and once the moisture has evaporated, EQUAL Tire Performance will perform as it originally did.[/LIST]
I don't have a dog in this fight but having read the above I'm left with a couple of questions. I can understand that the heat in the tire while driving would be hot enough to evaporate moisture but, where does that moisture go? Doesn't it just re-condense when the tire cools?

At the price of the 22.5 tires if there are any "modifications" needed it is time to walk away and find better tires and a better shop ! This is not rocket science. Balance them right, spin test them and then ask for your money or tell me you cant and I will move on !

I sold tires in my younger days and use to spin balance the tires by rubbing a large electric motor against the fronts and using a Hunter wheel balancer that attached to the wheel and was adjustable. Balancing has come a long way since them. I always have all of my tires high speed balanced, especially my cars. I can feel when they're not right. Since the motor home tires are on the coach for soooo long, are very large and often will have some wear issues since they don't get rotated like a car, I've come to change my mind about balancing. I believe these tires need to be rebalanced everytime they roll down the road. I believe the beads are the wave of the future, but I'm not comfotable with them yet. I decided to try the Centramatics on my new rear tires and see how they work. I guess I won't know the answer for another couple of years. So far they're very smooth. I'll probably add them to the front when I replace the tires.

I don't have "a dog in this fight", but I will admit to a little curiosity

How can water "evaporate" from a sealed tire that is properly holding air? Or are we just talking about the heat generated in the tire turns any water inside the tire into steam until the tire cools off and returns back to water

I also tend to think that if you have enough water in a tire/wheel assembly to float beads, then there is a serious problem with the air source that you use for inflating the tires in the first place. I.E. a compressor with a broken or missing water separator.

Ditto, 5 years and could not be more pleased.
