Going far beyond the traditional functions of a wheel balancer...

The Road Force® GSP9700 measures radial and lateral tire forces and provides instructions for solving ride and handling problems such as tire pull and wheel vibration that balancers and wheel aligners cannot fix.

Hunter's Road Force® GSP9700 is endorsed and recommended by vehicle manufacturers and proven by thousands of repair facilities worldwide as the industry standard in...

Benefits of the Road Force® GSP9700's "Three-In-One" Diagnostic Repair Capability

Solves Wheel Vibration Problems Balancers Can't Fix
Detects non-balance, radial-force-related problems associated with:

  Tire uniformity.
  Tire and rim runout.
  Wheel-to-balancer mounting error.
  Improper bead seating of tire to rim.

Faster Troubleshooting & Repair
Quickly calculates the contributions of the rim and tire to radial vibration problems and presents the technician with easy step-by-step repair instructions.

Identifies Potential Vehicle Pull or Drift Problems
The optional StraightTrak® LFM* feature measures lateral tire force, then applies that information to the set of tires, providing multiple placement choices to eliminate or minimize tire pull problems – an otherwise unfixable vehicle complaint during alignment service.

Dramatically Improves Ride Quality & Customer Satisfaction
Duplicates wheel vibration measurement and tire/wheel matching methods previously used only by vehicle manufacturers to provide that “new car ride.”

Increases Wheel Service Income
Establishes your shop as the wheel vibration and handling control experts. Reduces comebacks and enables you to service vehicles that other shops turn away.

Exclusively reduces operating costs with SmartWeight® balancing technology.


Measure Tire/ Wheel Uniformity

The exclusive Road Force Measurement® system applies up to 1,400 pounds (635 kg) against the tire. The loaded roller detects non-balance, radial-force-related vibrations caused by eccentricity and constructional variation of the tire and wheel. Unlike non-contact measurement, the roller samples the entire footprint of the tire including the sidewall’s contribution to ride quality.

As an additional alternative to Road Force® mode, the operator may also choose a QuickMatch® mode to quickly measure loaded runout alone.

Lack of tire uniformity is a common and often hidden source of vibration. As a tire rolls, it flexes as if it were made of springs. Vibration results when tire stiffness is not uniform.

Non-contact runout measurement systems often provide inconsistent results and do not take into consideration the contribution of tire sidewalls to vibration problems.
