At Rick's Tire & Wheel, we’ve got some new equipment to make life easier. Our techs have changing tires down to a science. Times have changed, and today’s tires and wheels are tougher, high-performance animals. We change tires with the most advanced tire changer the world has to offer—The Hunter Revolution™.

Call us now if you live in Shelby Township, MI, Sterling Heights, MI, or Rochester Hills, MI. We’ll change your tires so you can get back on the road.

Our Hunter equipment allows us to change tires quickly, and easily, without touching them. This prevents rim and bead damage from technicians who strain to remove the tires. Both use simple controls to automatically change the tire.

Touch screens reduce error and make tire changes more precise. By eliminating operator error, you can rest assured that your tire installation will be as accurate as possible.

Hunter Road Force Touch®

What is Road Force Balancing?

Road force balancing refers to the even distribution of mass in a tire and wheel assembly. While tire balancing measures the imbalances, road force balancing detects the up and down motion of the tire. Road force balancing machines help to detect bulges and hard spots normally missed by regular tire balancing machines.

If there is an imbalance in the tire and wheel assembly, the tire will start to wobble as it rotates. This wobbling causes vibrations that will increase with speed. Ignoring the vibrations that come with tire imbalance can cause abnormal tire wear and put strain on suspension system components. XSERVICEX in

Our experienced professionals use intuitive Hunter equipment to identify the position and amount of imbalance in your passenger or light truck tire and wheel assemblies. The Hunter Road Force Touch® uses a type of road test, applying up to 1,250 pounds of force against the rotating assembly. The Smart Weight® Balancing technology helps to improve tire balance by minimizing weight usage and maximizing productivity.

Within mere minutes, Hunter Road Force Touch® pinpoints the root of the problem:

  • Wheel imbalance
  • Wheel run-out
  • Force variation of the tire
  • Mounting errors
  • And other issues
