when i purchased 2 sets of winters from simply tire a few yrs ago. they hunter balanced my tires but they were way off on both sets and both cars shook at highway speeds. i had them redo it again.

have you tried your car at highway speeds to see if they balanced it correctly? That's a good price if done correctly.

Was that just to balance or to install a tire then balance as well?

And, darn, I thought that I found a Hot Deal on my own $20,000 Hunter Force Rim balancing machine. Got excited for a minute. ;)

It's only $10/wheel if 18" or less and if you don't need to dismount and remount due excessive vibration, just down the street at CEOTire, http://www.ceotire.com/service.html

What's the actual name of the auto shop or person to contact? Is it "advertised" deal or kinda YMMV when you walk-in?
I need this done too... got new tires recently from CanTire. Definitely some shaking on highways. The 2 back wheels each has like 15 pieces of lead (1/4 oz?) from CanTire.. :confused:

I'd get them to try rotating the tire 1/4 to 1/2 rotation on the rim if it takes that much weight to balance it. Or stop hitting curbs...

Just cause they have a rf balancer doesnt mean theyre measuing the run out and unmounting/resetting the bead 3 times like a proper rf balance should have done. You'll know if there are chalk marks on your tires and rims.

Yeah, that's my main concern, given that many lead pieces I have on my wheels I'll likely benefit from re-mounting. So need a properly done RF balance.


As for hitting the curbs.... well my wife drove the car out, hit a pothole and blew up TWO tires in 1 shot..

I just went to Nas-car to get my tires balanced based on OP's post and I have to say it's TOTALLY INACCURATE. First from what I can tell Nas-Car does NOT have a Hunter Road Force machine. Here's a pic of their machine which I took today, maybe someone with more experience can tell what it is.http://imgur.com/VxAlfbX. I also watched him balance the tires and at no point does anything come in contact with the tire to simulate road force like is shown on the Hunter video here. He just scraped off the old weight, spun the wheel for about 20 seconds, slapped on a weight, and then done. He didn't respin any of the wheels after applying the weight to check if it was ok. Each tire was done in less than 60 seconds. Ugh. The good news, it was only 10 dollars including tax per wheel. The bad news is you get what you pay for.

If you check on the Hunter website here to locate shops with their equipment and search their postal code M1P 4Z1 you can see Nas-Car is not listed. (Something I probably should have done before I trusted this post). If you want a quick, dirty, and cheap wheel balancing feel free to this place but it ain't what OP advertised it to be.

10 a tire is not a deal especially for incompetent process. This was a basic balance that I have paid 25 for the car in the past. Check kijiji for deals.

Op either is working there spreading lies or has no idea what they are talking about.

a true road force balance requires mounting and unmounting the tire from the rim multiple times. If this is a true road force balance it is a good deal.
