Good deal - only point I would add is there are new beads out now that don't absorb moisture, so clumping isn't an issue with those. As to them causing flats, I've never heard of that one, but maybe?

That said, there certainly is nothing wrong with old school balancing!


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Centramatics work well, too, though they do cost a bit. It's the same basic concept as the beads, but in a separate piece. Bonus: you get a lovely little shuka-shuka sort of noise (in quadraphonic high fidelity) as you mosey around a campground at slow speeds.

Yeah...

With the talk of upselling and such with the new ownership of that company... it makes one take a bit of pause.

But the overall price is inline with others if I had the tires shipped to them, so...

One thing I like about them is... customer for life. You buy one set of tires from them and they'll rotate your others for free. Or at least... they used to. Haven't needed it from them in a little while. So we'll see.

Hopefully a big purchase like this will keep us in their favor. But regardless... the price is fair for this region.


Cheers,

My 19 year old daughter is a huge Pink Floyd fan.

Are you saying I should go with the Centramatics just for her???
