4 Questions to Ask When Buying a Wheel Balancer

Posted

Thinking about purchasing a Ranger wheel balancer? Here are four questions you’ll need to ask to ensure you are getting the right machine for your garage:

  1. What size of wheel are you balancing? Bigger wheels need more accurate balancing, so you may want to spend a little more money to get a more advanced machine. This will help you ensure you are getting the accuracy your customers need for their wheels.
  2. Will you be using stick-on weights to balance your wheels?While Ranger’s entry-level machines will help you do this, a more advanced machine will help you do it faster will fewer spins. That can help speed up wheel balancing in your shop.
  3. Are you placing stick on weights behind the spokes?If so, you’ll want to purchase a machine that can help you do this accurately. Ranger offers several models that will tell you precisely where to stick the weights to ensure proper balance.
  4. Will you be balancing smaller vehicle wheels with larger holes? Purchase a Ranger wheel balancer light truck adapter set so you can service these wheels on your machine.
