Unless you have stitches and staples all over your face, and stand about 18" high, and don't own a comb....you've been eliminated from the suspect pool?

Leave the wheel weights

According to my analysis , it is best to have your Airstream's wheels balanced in addition to using Centramatic's product.

Agree with Tom....from looking at the weights that were used on my new wheels, I see no earthly way that the Centramatics could compensate adequately. I suppose you could luck out and find that your wheels were "on the money" without some weights, but think it unlikely. Not that expensive to have the wheels balanced -- and I think they only charged me an extra $7.50 for the force balancing. My TT tires are probably better balanced the my TV....

Hi, possible, but on my trailer, they can be installed either way. I chose to have my rings inward and the Centramatic logo facing out. [some wheels or hubs won't allow this]

Bob, I installed mine the same way you did -- though they would have fit in either direction...thought it was interesting that the instructions allowed that option. Guess if you had disc brakes you would have a different issue -- clearance!

The discs are of the "top hat" design....meaning there is quite a standoff from the disc to the wheel mounting surface. Discs can have the ring installed inward. IIRC I had to install that way to prevent ring to wheel interference.
