Sendel T03 wheels on the way
Getting 16" LT tires next week-
Lug nuts on the way-
Centramatic balancers on the way-
Dill TPMS on the way-
Maybe it will all be installed by Labor Day camping trip-
If not, one last ride for the Goodyear Puff-up-athons.

I'm looking at the Sendel wheels with Michelin LTX M/S2 tires. I just spoke with Andy at Inland RV about new Dura-Torque axles and he mentioned the Centramatic balancers (CB). He was saying something about needing 10" of flat space on the back of the wheels so the CB won't get torn up. The guys at the tire store didn't understand and I don't understand it well enough to explain either. I guess since you are running the Sendel T03 wheels, they much work :-) I'm also looking at the TR8 wheels...

Another question is about the TPMS... does your TV need to be equipped a certain way to use these? I have a 2009 F-150... How expensive are they and how important?

We've driven 23,882 miles since going full time. Not sure how much of that is towing per say, but the centramatics have been great.

I purchased the larger 300-356 balancers since we upgraded to aluminum 16 inch wheels.

Tire pressure monitors, Dill TPMS- $179 from Tire Rack.
It is a stand alone system-
Everything included in the box-
Monitor mounts to windshield with suction cup mount and plugs into cigarette lighter/12 volt pier port.
A hard wiring harness and external antenna are included.
The wheel sensors are part of the TPMS valve stems, also included.

Is this an easy DIY installation? Should it be done as tires are installed on new rims or can we upgrade later?

Yes, it is an easy upgrade.
It is convenient to do it when replacing tired, but you can break down tires, install sensors, and remount tire.
I waited till I was getting new tires and wheels anyway. Do it all at once- don't worry for 5+ years...

My Centramatics that I bought for the OEM 15" wheels fit the 16" wheels I installed when I upgraded tires. You should not have to buy new ones.
