Floor-to-floor diagnostic wheel balance process
Per year on average with SmartWeight® technology
Approve or require it in their facilities
Hunter's Road Force® Elite is the fastest diagnostic wheel balancer on the market and performs both a traditional balance and Road Force Measurement® in less time than it takes to complete a conventional balance.
The proliferation of much larger, wider tape-weight only style wheels poses problems for traditional dynamic balancing. Traditional balancers place equal emphasis on single plane/static (hop) and dual plane/dynamic (wobble) forces.
We balance wheels to cancel out the uncomfortable vibration that can be felt when an unbalanced wheel is traveling at speed. However, imbalance is not the only cause of wheel and tire induced vibration. A vehicle may have four perfectly balanced wheels and still experience vibration due to Road Force, or the change in force acting on a wheel assembly as it rolls.
Automatic features reduce effort and errors
Eliminates manual dimension entry and runout measurement to save time
Patented algorithms enhance precision and provide better appearance by hiding wheel weights
Automatically measures wheel dimensions, selects weight mode and measures rim runout
Automatically determines weight plane locations
Selects clip or tape weight usage
Calculates ForceMatch® solution
Creates a three-dimensional model of the rim
Allows more single-weight solutions
Prioritizes hiding tape weights behind spokes
Hunter continuously improves products
Diagnostic load roller quickly identifies vibration
Provide a "new car ride" to customers in less time than a traditional balance
Modern vehicles are four times more sensitive to static vibration forces than couple or dynamic forces.
Avoid an average of 66 comebacks per year by using SmartWeight® technology.
An average shop saves 7,130 ounces of weight per year with Smartweight® Technology.
Hunter's patented vision system identifies expanded areas suitable for weight placement
Eliminate static forces that impact modern vehicles up to 4X more than couple or dynamic forces
9 states ban lead weights (red)
7 states have previously introduced legislation to ban lead wheel weights (gray)
Tools that ensure every balance is correctly performed
Miscentering during wheel balancing procedures is the number one cause of improper balancing and customer comebacks. Automatic CenteringCheck® always monitors wheel centering to reduce setup errors.
Road Force® panel displays assembly value and limits, live rim and tire conditions
shown on-screen and color-coding allows operator to visualize Road Force® variations
Simple graphics illustrate how to optimize the assembly. Live rim and tire conditions with color-coding allow the operator to visualize Road Force® variations.
Easy-to-understand graphics of suggested wheel placement help the technician correct tire pull conditions.
Easily view and set tire inflation pressure.
View operations videos to help train technicians.
100% satisfaction with diagnostic balancing
Identify and reposition tricky tires at installation before customer complaints
Technicians can quickly check every assembly for vibration and pull issues ensuring a smooth ride
Solve persistent ride quality problems other shops can’t fix
Tire is balanced with standard non-diagnostic balancer or older generation Road Force® with the roller turned off.
Since customers are performing quality control for the shop, no additional time is required.
Majority of customers leave happy, but a small portion leave unhappy. Some return unhappy, others never return.
Customers that return unhappy will require over 45 minutes of additional work that technicians are often unequipped to handle.
Tire is balanced and a diagnostic test is performed in less time with Hunter's Road Force® Elite premium balancer.
A few tires need to be re-positioned on the rim to guarantee a round assembly and a smooth ride. This only adds a few minutes when handled at installation.
Because the technician tested every assembly, all customers leave happy.
Superior service differentiates Road Force® Elite shops from all other shops.
