Benefits of the Road Force GSP9700's "Three-In-One" Diagnostic Repair Capability
Solves Wheel Vibration Problems Balancers Can't Fix
Detects non-balance, radial-force-related problems associated with:
- Tire uniformity.
- Tire and rim runout.
- Wheel-to-balancer mounting error
- Improper bead seating of tire to rim
Troubleshooting & Repair
Calculates the contributions of the rim and tire to radial vibration problems and presents the technician with step-by-step repair instructions.
Identifies Potential Vehicle Pull or Drift Problems
The StraightTrak® LFM feature that is installed on our GSP9700 measures lateral tire force, then applies that information to the set of tires, providing multiple placement choices to eliminate or minimize tire pull problems – an otherwise unfixable condition during alignment service.
Dramatically Improves Ride Quality & Customer Satisfaction
Duplicates wheel vibration measurement and tire/wheel matching methods previously used only by vehicle manufacturers at the factories to provide that “new car ride.”
Description of the problem that is not possible to detect with conventional balancers
Lack of tire uniformity is a common and often hidden source of vibration. As a tire rolls, it flexes as if it were made of springs. Vibration results when tire stiffness is not uniform.
Diagnostic solution available with the use of the Road Force GSP9700
The exclusive Road Force Measurement® simulates true tire and wheel performance under vehicle on the road. Using this roller (see photo) system applies up to 1,400 pounds (635 kg) against the tire. The loaded roller detects non-balance, radial-force-related vibrations caused by eccentricity and constructional variation of the tire and wheel. Unlike non-contact measurement that are used by shops that have even best wheel balancers in the industry, the roller samples the entire footprint of the tire including the sidewall’s contribution to ride quality.
