General Motors Co. (GM) is calling a wheel balancer manufactured by Hunter Engineering Co. an essential tool for use in its service facilities in the United States.
Hunter’s Road Force Elite wheel balancer has earned GM's approval. Hunter says the Road Force Elite is the fastest diagnostic wheel balancer on the market and performs both a traditional balance and proprietary “Road Force” measurement in less time than it takes to complete a conventional balance.
Hunter says its patented vision system determines wheel dimensions and wheel runout measurements on the Road Force Elite to save time, eliminate data entry errors, ensure accuracy and enhance ease-of-use. The company’s “Force Matching” technology guides the technician to index and match the lowest spot on the rim with the stiffest spot on the tire to capture the best possible ride and prevent comebacks.
Hunter has developed customized equipment tailored to meet General Motors’ dealer service needs for many years.
