Computer Controlled Vs Manual Wheel Balancer

Wheel and tyre imbalance can cause vibrations in the car, which lead to potential damage to the wheel components and also cause wear and tear of the tyres.  For this reason, a good wheel balancer is an essential part of any automotive repair shop, in order to help assess and rectify any problems associated with imbalance easily and quickly.  Decided to purchase a wheel balancer, but confused about choosing between a computer-controlled or manual one?  If so, these points below can help you decide what’s best.

  • Computerised wheel balancers enter the parameters such as rim width, rim diameter and distance of the mounted wheel assembly automatically, and usually just require one these parameters to be entered manually.  With manual balancers the operator must enter all values.
  • Computer controlled wheel balancers feature self calibration and self diagnosis, which allows for quick and easy balance of almost any type of rim.  This feature is absent in manual balancers.
  • Computer controlled balancers come with a safety protection cover.  Manual balancers lack this feature.
  • When it comes to cost, manual balancers are a much more cost effective option when compared to computerised balancers.
