Hunter Road Force Balancing
Automotive Import Market has several Hunter Road Force Tire Balancers that allow our technicians to eliminate nearly all possible wheel- and tire-related vibrations.
Our Hunter balancers "road tests" the mounted wheel and tire assembly to investigate every aspect of a tire and wheel combination that might cause a vibration.
The "road roller" applies up to 1,400 pounds (635 kg) of force against the wheel and tire assembly to measure their combined uniformity and run out. By using these industry leading machines, we provide our customers with precision wheel balances that provide a smooth and comfortable ride.
The front tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle accelerate, steer, and help brake your vehicle. Front tires tend to wear down faster than rear tires. Typically rear wheel tires last twice as long as front wheel tires.
Ideally, we recommend you replace all four tires at the same time. Rotating your tires helps ensure even wearing for all your tires.
How do I know when to rotate my tires?
- Follow your vehicle's owner's manual suggestions,
- Rotate them with every other oil change, or
- Rotate them every 3,000 to 7,000 miles.
Tire & Flat Repairs
At Automotive Import Market we only write my essay for me use patch plug combos when repairing a tire. Instead of opting for the easy fix and shoving in a plug from outside the tire, we dismount the tire and install a patch plug from inside the tire to ensure a safe and long-lasting seal.
A plug pushed into the tread from outside the tire is constantly fighting centrifugal force as the tire rotates. The patch plugs used at Automotive Import Market seals the inter liner and fills the path of the puncture.
Any repair attempted without removing the tire from the wheel is improper. By dismounting the tire, our technicians are able to inspect the interior of the tire to ensure that the steel belts and interior tire carcass have not been damaged.
When installing a plug patch our technician’s homework portal clean, buff and cement the plug patch into place. This process makes certain that the tire’s ability to retain air has been restored.
