New tires, balancing, & valve stems

I have been dragged kicking & screaming to the" bag of balance beads inside the tire" camp. I love them so far! Wish I had made the change from tape stickon weights years ago.

I had spun balanced weights on my '87 coach. When I installed the Firestone FS561s, I used 10oz bags of EQUAL in each 11R24.5 tire. Absolutely the smoothest ride I have ever enjoyed. I did use the valve stems recommended. Tires have lost no pressure. Heart

I used them 10 years Full Timing. Also had Balance Masters.

Upon the advice of you and of Rudy I went with the Centramatics.  So far I love them.  Only thing better would have been if the truckstop polished wheels as my drives were in need of some professional help.  That was the next stop and now we're all balanced up and shined up.
