Kia lists Hunter balancing equipment as "essential"

Hunter’s Road Force Touch balancer with Hunter’s patented StraightTrak feature is now essential equipment for all KIA Dealerships in the US.

By measuring the lateral force, or tire pull, StraightTrak shows the technician optimal wheel placement to cancel vehicle drift and pull issues. After testing, KIA’s analysis showed that many vehicle tracking concerns could be corrected with the StraightTrak feature.

Kia Motors America offers a complete line of vehicles through more than 755 dealers throughout the United States.

Parameters such as tire pull can only be measured accurately under load, making Hunter’s patented load roller the truest way to identify vehicle drifts and pulls. The Road Force Touch also uses the patented load roller to perform a simulated road test, finding hidden vibration problems and offering match-mounting instructions to minimize forces.
