Balancemasters on front of truck, balance beads in rear tires, balance the trailer tires. I am having issues with the beads getting a couple of the valve stems and causing a slow leak. They. Any not have inserted the proper valve cores.

I use Centramatics on the 5th wheel and the truck.

 

Many HDT truckers are happy with Centramatics.

 

Bought a set (CMs) for my LDT steers - (IMO) they took up too much space on the lug (studs), so returned them and went with BalanceMasters - which left sufficient amount of thread "outside" of the lug nuts.

 

Also, for my LDT - CM admitted some (possible) brake caliper clearance. Maybe? .

 

Never tried the beads - just figure (IMO) stuff *inside* the tires could be a PITA.

.

With the exception of my "hangup" on the spacing for the Centramatics, either one would be my choice.

BalanceMasters seem to work out just fine - been meaning to add set to the drive tires/wheels..
