A side note that I neglected to mention regarding the installation of the CM's in my application was that they will only fit one way. One side the ring where all the action happens will interfere with the wheel going on. Simple thing to reverse the CM. I have the Sendel T-03 wheels. Don't know if this is a factor with other wheels. Something tells me this will have no impact on the function of the CM's.

I asked the folks at Centramatic that very question about the ring being in or out. They told me that they worked the same either way.

Before putting Centramatics on my Airstreams, I have four GoldWings (3 big Wings & an F6B) that I am using them on (along with TPMS).

In my quest to get proper tire wear on my Wings, I installed suspension upgrades (at significant expense), replaced neck bearings, etc.. It was only after I installed Centramatics did I get the tire life and wear pattern to an acceptable level. I always balance the wheels even though running Centramatics.

Armed with this positive experience, it was a no-brainer to me about using them on the Airstreams when I installed 16" wheels. As mentioned above, your wheels may be balanced but that does nothing for the lack of balance on brake drums, etc..

To me, Centramatics is money well spent, as well as, a TPMS.

Lou... are you running Centramatics on your new coach? Thumbs up?

The Michelin LTX (P) 235/75R15 XL tires are mounted on SenDel T03-56545T wheels (15" wheels with 14" drum brake 5 bolt circle) with the Dill 1506-453 TPMS system and Centramatic model 200-221 plates. Tire pressure is set to 44 psi.

These wheels are the same design as on our Classic, just an inch smaller in diameter.

All will be mounted on the trailer before the unit leaves the dealer lot.

Last trip, one of my trailer wheels threw a weight. I'm now thinking of buying a set of the Centramatics for the trailer and possibly for the TV as well. Of course, I like to buy at the lowest total price. If I purchase them for both vehicles and buy direct online from the manufacture here in TX I have to pay tax and shipping and the regular price for the whole order and that comes to $632.39.
Break down of costs:
Trailer complete set=$199
Truck front= $179.
Truck rear= $189
subtotal= $567
Tax=$35.44
Shipping=$29.95
Grand Total=$632.39
Anyone aware of a supplier selling them for less? Lower prices, free shipping and/or no tax would make my day!

Bluto, are you close enough to CM mfg to pick them up yourself? That could save you a few bucks.

I haven't found them any cheaper as well.

Sphere Guy, I may just end up doing that if I can't get better pricing.

Silverflames, Ya, but Id have to buy new axles to get that price from Andy. Thanks
but I'm about 20 years away from needing new axles. But it was worth a look!

Bluto, that's not that much more than a tire or two.

If you're near Alvarado, TX, it's a first class shop to check alignment on both vehicles. So, if you've also been needing to upgrade truck antiroll bar bushings to poly (factory rubber should be disposed of off showroom floor), stop on in. Order the grease-able Energy Suspension versions beforehand to bring with you.

Slowmover,

I didn't know they did other stuff to, it's good to know, a good shop is hard to find these days. Just finished a 4000+mile trip a couple of weeks ago. Now I'm starting the check everything and change fluids and filters so of course this thread caught my attention. I see you and others have had some good things to say about Centramatics so they are on my list for a near future purchase.

Are they available in Canada?
How 'bout other brands that do the same thing?
