Fifth Wheel Tire Balancing

I don't know if anyone has seen this about rims on a Fifth wheel and balancing. As far as Newbies to the RV world, this is one of the first thing you should do to your campers, HAVE YOUR TIRES BALANCED, and don't forget the SPARE, no matter what type or size of trailer it is.

GOOGLE: Fifth Wheelin balance your RV trailer tires.

Not just fifth wheel tires. All RV's should balance their tires. We even balanced the boat and utility trailer tires.

That's what I was referring to, when I said all types and sizes of trailers not just are RVs. Correct me if I am wrong, I think once you reach a speed over 25 mph is when the unbalance tire starts to react and when it is noticeable.

Balance & Pressure

Not only is balance of importance also is the removal of all air & refilling with nitrogen, i have a 5th wheel that i sold that i filled with nitrogen & never had to add any thing to tires for pressure for 4 years.

PJ1 makes a product called Balance Plus that I've used in my bike tires for years. Works great to not only balance the tire but seals punctures well too. I'm considering trying it the trailer tires.
