Unprecedented quality control

Differentiate your shop

Solve persistent ride quality problems other shops can’t fix

Other shops

Standard balance

Tire is balanced with standard non-diagnostic balancer or older generation Road Force® with the roller turned off.

Customer performs quality check

Since customers are performing quality control for the shop, no additional time is required.

Customer may return unhappy

Majority of customers leave happy, but a small portion leave unhappy. Some return unhappy, others never return.

Additional work is required

Customers that return unhappy will require over 45 minutes of additional work that technicians are often unequipped to handle.

Road Force® Elite shops

Diagnostic balance

Tire is balanced and a diagnostic test is performed in less time with Hunter’s Road Force® Elite premium balancer.

Match-mounting

A few tires need to be re-positioned on the rim to guarantee a round assembly and a smooth ride. This only adds a few minutes when handled at installation.

Technician-approved

Because the technician tested every assembly, all customers leave happy.

Eliminate comebacks

Superior service differentiates Road Force® Elite shops from all other shops.
