I don't think their finding on "needing electricity" was likely to be helpful -- our Lucas electricals worked 'bout the same with and without electricity.

Oh, you just don't understand! That oil leaking is not leaking oil. That's built-in rust prevention.

the wheels on your trailer have zero offset.

generally the ruler along the back side is to determine the space available when the offset is negative.

there should be NO problem fitting the centra discs in your case.

these guys having issues are rolling on old steel rims, that are spaced differently than modern alloy trailer rims.

a call to the centra' factory with your rim diameter and the info "zero offset" will get the right size.

and u won't have to bend/mold/compress or otherwise mash them.

while bob's trailer has 15s u can get a CLEAR picture of how they fit in post #61 here...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f438...ate-32907.html

just let 'em know IF u have 14s...

cheers

Put a set of the 300-308's (15") on mine. That, new shock absorbers and an axle alignment (beam axle) made a world of difference on our S/S with it's wooden wagon suspension.

Centramatics

A suggestion to those that have asked questions about Centramatics.

The "KEY" is the absolute flat dimension, on the inside of the wheel.

As an example, the inside of a 15 inch wheel, is not a flat clear 15 inches.

That dimension dictates which model will properly fit.

Regarding aluminum wheels. The inside wheel dimension is usually different than for the same size steel wheel.

Andy

Great product! We've been using them for five years or more and from all indications i.e. tire wear & tightness of our coach interior, they do a marvelous job. Like a good hitch setup, proper tire inflation and towing speed they provide peace of mind.

I finally spoke to Jerry (the Airstream expert)at Centramatics. He wanted me to read all the numbers off his tire to make sure he was truly dealing with a 14" tire set up. After I gave him all the numbers off the tire, he was uncertain that there was enough inside clearance for the centramatics to fit. Apparently the 14" wheel (aluminum) are a bit rate. Perhaps I should just order a set and see if they fit properly. If not, I guess I can pay the freight to send them back. jc

OK, I got the Centramatics and installed them on the hubs. They fit fine on 14" wheels as long as the tube for the bearings was turned out (toward the wheel and not in toward the hub). I expect that they will keep everything in balance. Next project; install the tire pressure monitor system. jc

How about posting the stock # of your 14" Centramatics.

According to our information, that should be a part # 200-221.

They are 9 7/8 inches in diameter.
