[DML] Re: Wheel Balancing Damage



You should continue to check around - maybe a BMW dealer. There are 
many cars these days that require special wheel equipment balance a 
wheel and tire and especially mount tires on wheels. You have to 
find the folks that are doing the newer cars though or specialty 
wheels.

The new equipment can balance perfectly, with weights hidden, and 
the newer changers can mount tires on a wheel without touching the 
rim.

I have the smoothest riding D I have owned in twenty five years - 
all done on Hunter equipment GPS 9700 and TC 3500. There are 
no "plates" - they used a special mount and shim that clamped in the 
lug nut holes - never touched the rim. I have had all my cars done 
with that equipment and I could not be happier with the results.

Check out the equipment:      http://www.hunter.com/

Be sure to watch the flash demo.

BTW - IMHO, on the car balancing is a waste of time and $. Been 
there, done that.

this spin on plate that when tightened down on a rim leaves a gouge 
or scratch mark on the face of the rim.
