You know tires have changed over the years. So have cars. And one of the more common problems that we find with automobiles in general has to do with tires. You see, tires change from being a tall tire, that’s the way they used to be. The distance from the rim up to the curve of the tread used to be quite a distance and it was relatively flexible.
Today, tires are much lower profile. The distance from the rim to the top of the tread is less and the sidewall is much stiffer. This means that minor problems can be amplified and transmitted into the car and you feel things a lot more than you used to.
But everybody says alright, we’ll balance the tires. That’s part of the equation but balancing isn’t always the answer. So you have to go a step further. What we have here is a Hunter Road Force balancer
