Solves vibration problems balancing can't fix.
A product built on many years of innovation, the Hunter Road Force® Elite Wheel Balancer extends far beyond the traditional functions of a wheel balancer. It not only solves wheel balance problems, but also "road tests" the tire/wheel assembly to eliminate virtually every variable causing vibration in relation to the tire and rim. The Hunter Road Force® was designed to check road force and Lateral Force Movement (LFM), better known as [radial drift or pull] to assist in giving you that new car ride after replacing your tires.
Benefits of the World's Fastest Diagnostic Wheel Balancer:
The tires you have on your car today are the technology of the future. Tires are the most technologically advanced piece of equipment on your car today! The cars of "yesteryear" were made of heavier metals. This heavier design absorbed many road vibrations. Today's cars are lighter and tighter; the suspension systems must dampen many vibrations from irregular road conditions. Therefore, the tire/wheel combination must be perfectly balanced and matched. This precision requires the Hunter Road Force® and specially trained technicians to understand this and correct the problems before the tires are installed on your car, light truck or SUV.
We use Branich model 450. This product is an on board nitrogen generator. Most companies purchase nitrogen in cylinders at about 2000 p.s.i. We at Pit Crew Tire Service have chosen to invest in a system that will create nitrogen on demand and store it in an on-board 80 gal storage tank at low pressure. (170 p.s.i. for safety concerns) The USA trails European tire technology by about 10 years. Today's bottled water was a luxury 30 years ago, nitrogen for our tires is analogous to this example Pit Crew Tire Service is a forward looking company that sees that nitrogen is the future for tire inflation and is ready now too bring this important service to it's valuable customers.
Please read the dissertation on our Technology page to understand why we have made this important investment. Pit Crew Tire is dedicated to providing the safest and most reliable service in the market.
The AUTO-TOUCH is a unique and patented tool: it operates between rim and tire and then, levering on the rim, progressively pulls up the bead, minimizing the stress on the tire.
The tool is made of plastic material to avoid any damage to the rim.
We have modified this piece of equipment to limit the amount of hydraulic issues. We use this equipment for tire work on all of our trucks, SUVs, trailers, and trucks and golf carts!
