2004 Bambi-Question on wheels

Friends,
This is my first post. Thanks for such a neat place to get questions answered on Airstream Trailers. Here's my question:we have just bought a 2004 Bambi. Since it still has it's original tires, I plan to get new ones right away. I am wondering if these wheels require lug centric or hub centric balancing?

thanks,
pronghorn

Welcome to the forums. The wheels are lug-centric, and they are balanced on the hub, just like an automotive wheel.

All tires, wheels, hub and drum assemblies, should be balanced, as an assembly.

If you are referring to Centramatic balancers, that is one way that the balancing issue can be resolved.

I think this was allowable in that fact that the OP used some terms that to me also made me wonder if they were talking about Centramatic's. I gave this the benefit of the doubt and approved it.
