WHEEL BALANCERS

When automobiles were first mass-produced and hit the road, there was no need for wheel balancers, as vehicles such as the Model T Ford only had a top speed of 40-45 mph. The average driver wouldn’t feel any imbalance as they traveled around town. However, as vehicles evolved and speed increased, wheel balancing became a necessity for the safety of the vehicles and passengers inside.

Today, wheel balancing is a crucial piece of the automotive service industry. Just about every car has some type of imbalance which causes uneven wheel rotation, resulting in hop and wobble. Traveling on the highway, even the smallest imbalance in vehicles creates an outward centrifugal force equal to that of a sledgehammer. When customers choose to have their wheels balanced, they’re minimizing the shaking and vibration within their vehicles and providing themselves with maximum control on the road.

Viking Equipment is proud to offer Hunter Wheel Balancers to diagnose and optimally solve your customers’ wheel vibration issues. With a readout in hand, technicians save time and minimize wheel-weight usage. These advanced wheel balancers also detect wheel runout and force variation. With these metrics, technicians can correct other conditions that cause wheel vibration. In short, technicians will have more success with Hunter Wheel Balancers in their shop and happy customers will leave with a perfectly smooth ride.

Wheel balances and tire rotations must be performed at regular intervals to prevent suspension wear, vibration, and irregular tire wear. OEM Dealerships and Tire & Wheel Service Shops can rely on the quality of Hunter Engineering and the low prices provided by Viking Equipment.
