Default Re: Road Forced Balanced Tires

Years ago Hunter made an on car balancer where you jacked up a wheel and placed two powered rollers under the tire. You attached a bracket to the wheel then spun up the tire and I believe used a strobe to figure out the imbalance. This old type of balancer is supposed to be very good because like the road force machine you have the vehicle weight on the tire plus you are essentially balancing the entire rotating assembly including the drum. Some guys have found shops around that still have them and have had good results resolving tire/wheel/drum imbalance issues.
