Road Force Balance

A road force balance is the most accurate test you can use for wheel alignment, wheel mounting, and tire rotation. The road force machine detects side to side wobbling in addition to vertical vibrations, and allows the elimination of the directional pull of the tire in addition to vibration.

The road force balance machine puts a roller on the tire assembly with 1400 pounds of force, which is close to the weight that would actually be on the tire, seating the rim and detecting vibration and pulling problems that aren't related to alignment or balance. This is a highly recommended procedure for accurate wheel alignment, wheel mounting, and tire rotation and beyond, that will ensure you don't have to go back to get it redone again because it wasn't accurate.
