Hunter SmartWeight® Technology Establishes a New Era of Wheel Balancing
Hunter Engineering’s patented SmartWeight balancing technology is a revolutionary wheel balancing method that minimizes correction weight usage and maximizes productivity, saving money on both material and labor costs. This new method computes correction weights by measuring and evaluating the “absolute” or pure static (shake) and couple (shimmy) forces that cause vibration. Unlike traditional balancing, which judges balance conditions based on correction weight values, SmartWeight balancing uses the actual static and couple forces to directly address the source of vibration problems, resulting in the best possible balance.
Reduce Your Wheel Weight Costs and Improve Profitability
A tire shop can use thousands of dollars of wheel weights per balancer every year and many shops have several balancers. SmartWeight balancing technology can reduce these wheel weight costs 30-40% and reduces the time it takes to balance most wheels - all without sacrificing balance or ride quality!
Dramatic increases in lead prices have raised the cost of lead wheel weights and the cost of providing balancing service. Using SmartWeight Technology the average shop can save 30-40% in wheel weight costs per year!†
