Hunter Road Force Wheel & Tire Balancer
Now that you've picked out your sweet new wheels and settled on the perfect tires for your baby, it's time to mount and balance them. You're at the right place if your wheel specialist tells you, "We'll mount and balance those for you on our Hunter Road Force machine," because doing it yourself is, well, really hard.
Getting your 2006 Silverado to ride like a Cadillac might seem hard to do, but thanks to Hunter Engineering and their state-of-the-art Road Force wheel and tire balancing technologies, the Road Force Elite will get you as close as you can with a bowtie on your grille.
Long gone are the days of smashing little weights around the outside of your rim to get your wheels and tires to balance. Hunter's Road Force Balancers use laser technology (that's right, real lasers) to recognize spokes and pinpoint inconspicuous stick-on weight locations utilizing the entire width of the barrel for a perfect balance.
When it comes to tires, the truth is, tires aren't perfectly round and the folks at Hunter knows this. The Road Force Elite wheel and tire balancer solves many wheel vibration problems that traditional wheel balancers can't. By simulating the force of the road against the tire, the Road Force Elite detects:
- Non-balance, radial-force related problems associated with tire uniformity (tires that aren't round)
- Rim and tire runout (the assembly)
- Tire mounting errors (sometimes the tire needs to be repositioned on the wheel)
- Improper seating of the tire on the rim (problems with tire mounting)
Getting the best balance out of your wheel and tire assembly is critical to a "smooth as glass" ride. The folks at Hunter have really taken the guesswork out of the process with the Road Force Elite wheel and tire balancer.
And remember, when you buy your wheels and tires from OE Wheels, you get free mounting and balancing with the Hunter Road Force Elite wheel and tire balancer, an $80 to $100 value!
