Modern cars need state-of-the art equipment, and that’s definitely what you’ll get at CSE. An example of this is our new Hunter TC3500 Tire Changer, which is nothing less than the best tire changing apparatus on the market. Manufactured by Hunter Engineering, this tire changer has some unique, highly advanced features. The 3-point articulating arm automatically adjusts outward away from the wheel, following the rims without any hint of damage. The head of the arm is composed of a highly advanced polymer that totally removes any potential of steel head contact damage with your valuable rims. This head also rides closer to the rim than conventional steel head designs, placing less stress on the beads of low-profiles tires. The wheel clamping system (“Tulip” clamp) is nothing less than outstanding, for this type of design allows the wheel to move in unison with the hydraulic roller forces, eliminating the risk of damage to the rim. Also, this design eliminates steel-jaw clamping that can damage the powder-coating of exotic wheels. In addition, the clamping design allows this changer to hold ANY type of wheel up to 22″. Now that’s advanced!
Are we advanced at CSE? You bet! Another example is our Hunter GSP9700 “Road Force Measurement” Vibration Control System.As everyone knows, proper wheel balancing makes all the difference in steering, handling and a comfortable ride in a car. With this system, we take ordinary wheel balancing one step further…with an actual SIMULATION of a road force test to verify if the assembly is “round when rolling” under load. If a problem is found, the unit will then automatically diagnose wheel/tire related vibration problems and provides solutions directly to the technician. With this advanced setup, we can locate and eliminate virtually ANY type of vibration relating to tire and rim. So, why not bring your car in today and get your tires checked over? Aftewards we think you’ll agree that this has got to be the BEST tire-balancing equipment on the planet!
