I installed the 16" Centramatics after converting the Classic to Kodiak disc brakes along with the 16" Michelin tires and SenDel wheels.

Here's an alternative idea. Michelin LTX M/S Defender 235/75R15. They have a load range 109T thats 2250 LBS per tire, more than ample for a 25ft AS, with 50LBS psi max. I'm aware that a load rang of D is better than C but the capability to carry 9000 lbs is there.

I understand that Can AM is using 15in Michelins as a replacement tire.

They should be great tires but I don't think they will be available in that size until March. If they are please let me know because I want them. Thanks.

The ones that we got for New Lucy are the 200-221 Airstream Special. We bought them directly from Centramatic in Alvarado, Texas.

You're correct on that avionstream, late March. We're doing a cross country trip starting late May so if that holds true I'll have them before the trip. I've chatted with a few either on here or Airstream Addicts on Facebook that have their predecessor and are very satisfied.

No, they slide over the bolts on the brake hub and then you mount your tire/rim as before. They are essentially a disk with an outer tube filled with fluid and metal bearings that auto-balance once you exceed 25 mph. The design balances the whole hub and tire assembly.

The Centramatic videos provide a good overview:

Greetings Brian - If I remember right New Lucy has the 16" upgrade, so who or where does one find these #200-221 airstream specials from. Also is there much to installing them?

Thanks

Doug

Thanks Brian
Looking at the pic's it looks like they just go between the hub and the Wheel? Also can you articulate where you got them and what ones to order. I have a 2013 28' FC, with the upgraded wheels to 16" Mich.
Thanks

Doug

That's correct, Doug. They just slip over the lug nuts, and you mount the wheel.

We got them directly from Centramatic in Texas. Give them a call. They are very helpful and will set you up with the correct model balancer.

Since the three sizes of Centramatics are the same price of $199 per set, I would suggest that if installing the 16" wheel upgrade one should order the ones designed with a larger diameter for those wheels.

Centramatic Part Numbers for Airstream use:

14" 5 bolt pattern #200-221 standard part

15" 6 bolt pattern #200-221 Special

16" 6 bolt pattern #300-356 all A plates
