Road Force Wheel Balancer

What is Road Force Balancing?

Road force balancing refers to the even distribution of mass in a tire and wheel assembly. While tire balancing measures the imbalances, road force balancing detects the up and down motion of the tire. Road force balancing machines help to detect bulges and hard spots normally missed by regular tire balancing machines.

If there is an imbalance in the tire and wheel assembly, the tire will start to wobble as it rotates. This wobbling causes vibrations that will increase with speed. Ignoring the vibrations the come with tire imbalance can cause abnormal tire wear and put strain on suspension system components.Hunter Road Force Touch in Houston, TX

Our experienced professionals use intuitive Hunter equipment to identify the position and amount of imbalance in your passenger or light truck tire and wheel assemblies. The Hunter Road Force Touch® uses a type of road test, applying up to 1,250 pounds of force against the rotating assembly. The Smart Weight® Balancing technology helps to improve tire balance by minimizing weight usage and maximizing productivity.

Within mere minutes, Hunter Road Force Touch® pinpoints the root of the problem:

  • Wheel Imbalance
  • Wheel Run-Out
  • Force Variation of the Tire
  • Mounting Errors
  • And Other Issues

The machine then transmits the necessary corrections to a diagnostic screen so our staff can make precise corrections to ensure your wheels are properly balanced.

Our Hunter Road Force balancing equipment will provide an accurate diagnosis of your vehicle. The Hunter Road Force Touch® is guaranteed to perform a tire balance test faster than a traditional balancing equipment. It solves vibration problems, identifies vehicle pulls, ensures proper centering, and eliminates setup errors in order to provide a new car ride to your vehicle.

Don’t risk the wear and performance of your tires on any other auto balancing technology.
