Gaither Takes Balancing to the Next Level: GT12-1US Manual Computer Tire Balancer…
The Gaither GT12-1US is a heavy duty, manually operated computer tire and wheel balancer. Portable and easy to operate, the machine is ideal for commercial truck and bus shops, fleet operators and independent 4×4 light truck shops. We test 4×4 aftermarket wheels and oversized tires. For our shop, this is an optimal piece of equipment.
We test tires as accurately as possible. Performing our own tire service is one way to assure consistency and predictable results. The portable, easy to operate Gaither GT12-1US manual tire and wheel balancer provides precise, quick balancing and optimal data.
Many tire shops have changed and serviced our tires over the years. The use of oversized, heavy duty (often Load Range E) tires on lightweight 4x4s has been particularly challenging. Tire shops have limited time to change tires, relying on expensive, high end equipment for troubleshooting and problem solving. Often, the combination of aftermarket wheels and oversized tires leads to questionable results.
The Gaither GT12-1US manual computer tire and wheel balancer can demystify the quirks of these oversized aftermarket wheel and tire packages. Considering the high un-sprung weight mass of these tire/wheel assemblies, balancing is even more critical. These wheel/tires for the XJ Cherokee weigh 88 pounds per assembly. Our Ram 3500’s 37″x12.5″x17″ Cooper AT3 XLT tires and Raceline rims weigh 102 pounds per assembly!
We brought the Gaither GT12-1US Manual Computer Tire/Wheel Balancer into our shop for better results and quality control. The machine features a highly accurate, World Class computer balancing mechanism. With this high standard, we can consistently achieve our tire and wheel balancing goals.
Establishing our in-house tire shop has eliminated 80 mile round trips to the tire store for sublet tire mounting and balancing. Whether we mount new test tires or perform periodic tire rotations and balance checks, the Gaither GT12-1US balancer easily rolls out of its stowage space to get the job done!
