Hunter Road Force Balancing
Diagnoses issues that traditional balancers can't identify.
When it comes to road force balance services, we pride ourselves on using the best balancing machine on the market: the Hunter Road Force HD with Smart Weight® Balancing technology. The Road Force HD Balancer simulates being on the road and it insures proper balance for your RV's wheels and tires. It also helps eliminate unwanted vibrations when driving and It gives your RV a very smooth ride.
What is Road Force Balancing?
Road Force Balancing refers to the even distribution of mass in a tire and wheel assembly. While regular tire balancing only measures the imbalances, Road Force Balancing detects the up and down motion of the tire and detects bulges and hard spots normally missed by regular machines. If there is an imbalance in the tire or wheel assembly, the tire will start to wobble as it rotates, this causes vibrations that will increase with speed. Ignoring the vibrations can cause abnormal tire wear and put strain on your suspension system.
Our experienced professionals identify the position and amount of imbalance in your RV tire and wheel assemblies. The Smart Weight® Balancing technology helps to minimize weight usage and maximize productivity. Within mere minutes, Hunter Road Force pinpoints the root of the problem:
Force Variation of the Tire
And Other Issues
The balancing machine then transmits the necessary corrections to a diagnostic screen so our staff can make precise corrections. The Hunter Road Force HD is guaranteed to perform a balance test faster and more precise than any traditional balancing equipment. It solves vibration issues, identifies pulls, ensures proper centering and eliminates setup errors in order to provide a smooth ride to your RV.
Don’t risk the wear and performance of your tires on any other auto balancing technology.

When Should I Change My RV Tires?
It's recommended you replace your RV tires once they reach five years old. It is not advised using remaining tread to determine when it's time to get replacements. You need to consider the tire's age, use and outdoor exposure. Extreme temperatures, sun rays and road chemicals all take a toll on RV tires. While old RV tires may look brand new if not used frequently, they may need replacement due to age and wear. If you see signs of damage like cracks or bugles, replace your tires sooner. If you're not sure if you have one of these issues or it's been five years or more since you swapped tires, ask one of our service technicians to check the condition of your tires.
The best way to extend your RV tire life is to shield your tires from the sun and extreme temps, keep your tires clean and make sure your tires are inflated properly. Never head out on a trip without checking your RV or camper tires beforehand, especially after an extended storage period. This will reduce the risk of tire issues and keep your focus on enjoying your recreational time instead. When you need new tires or an RV wheel alignment, call
How to Choose the Right RV Tire
New tires are one of the most important purchases you make for your RV, with so much riding on them in a literal sense. All RV tires are manufactured to provide a smooth, safe and quiet ride. The best tire depends on your application, the environment and the weather. Certain tires are built to perform better in rain while others advertise better fuel economy. You'll also need to make sure you purchase tires with a load capacity to support the weight of your RV or camper and everything inside.
Matching weight and performance needs with the right set of tires is our specialty. If you're not sure what size RV tire you need or which type of tire is best for your purpose, talk with a member of our team. We're here to assist with any questions about tires and tire maintenance.

TIRE CARE & MAINTENANCE
You should inspect your RV tires at least monthly and before each trip for proper inflation pressure and treadwear and you should supplement this with recurring rotation, balancing and alignment services. It's also a good idea to have your tires inspected after you drive on rugged, rocky terrain or when you bring your RV in for service.
RVs are fun, but they're also highly engineered vehicles, and so are the tires they roll on. Knowing how to properly care for and maintain your tires can improve the performance of your tires and your RV--and increase the likelihood you'll have a satisfactory RV experience.
RUN FLAT PROTECTION
Protect yourself, your family and your RV with proven technology.
Anyone who has driven an RV knows how dangerous a steering axle tire blowout can be. Not to mention how much damage a blown tire can cause to your RV. Tyron is proven to help prevent rollovers caused by tire blowouts and greatly reduces the risks of a serious accident, injury or fatality and major damage following rapid tire deflation.
Brought to you by Spartan® RV Chassis new aftermarket parts and service brand, Red Diamond RunFlat technology allows coach owners to safely drive, steer, and brake in the event of a tire blowout or pressure loss incident. Rated to run at up to 30 mph for 15 miles, the device protects the coach, those inside of it, and others on the road.
When a tire deflates, air pressure can no longer hold it in its correct place on the wheel. It becomes free to move about and the tire’s beads can slip into the “well” of the wheel allowing the tire to flail. Steering, braking and traction control is lost and the flapping tire can cause serious damage to the vehicle’s brakes, suspension and bodywork. Don’t jeopardize your life, your RV or your precious cargo, ask us about these amazing RV safety products and let us install one for you today.
