Centramatic vendor?

Me either. It's why I bought the Centramatics. I had never thought of balancing the hubs until I started reading about it here. And when I got my new axles, I just bought the Centramatics on Inland Andy's advice. So, I say theoretically, because I'm not running without them to test out whether they do anything or not. If you watch the video they have on them, it's pretty convincing. And I was serious about the Michelins...

-Red, balanced by science...

All I can base my opinion on is the 60,000 miles that Old Lucy did with the Centramatics with no visible tire wear.

That's a bunch of miles on a set of tires... If I can ever get where we drag this thing around more often, I've got to go that route...

-Red, mostly stagnant lately...

To clarify the model for 16" wheels, the Centramatic part number is "300-356 all "A" plates". The version for the Airstream 15" wheels is "200-221 Special".

The model for the 16" wheels is a larger diameter and has larger rim tube with more balancing fluid in it.

The smaller model for the 15" wheels will fit on 16" wheels, but due to smaller diameter and less balancing fluid will not be as effective as the larger size.
