I was as Centramatic dealer about 20 or 25 years ago. They work fine in warmer weather, but when we got into cold weather in the Midwest the oil in them would get thick and the guys couldn't hardly keep them on the road. I junked several hundred of the Centramatics. We then used balancing beads and they worked fine until someone aired them up somewhere that had moisture in the air line. I now run all 445/50R22.5 Michelin on drive and trailer and 295.R22.5 on the steer. We don't use any form of balancing and get better tire mileage than we ever have and the drivers don't complain.
