    I have a 2010 HHR, had the factory rims and tires switched out for different ones, and had the TPMS sensors moved over to the new rims by Sears. I then noticed a ton of vibration in the steering wheel at 65mph, you could feel the whole car shaking. I took it back to sears and they rebalanced the rims, and now it shook even worse. Then I read this forum, went to the road force website and found a local tire shop that had a road force balancer, and got them balanced again. This time, all the vibration is gone! Very smooth! Thanks again!
    Hello alenart1,

    Welcome to the forum and I am glad to hear that you were able to address the issue with your HHR! This forum has a great wealth of information and I am glad to hear that it has helped you out.

    My guy, Auto Check #9 in North Houston uses the Hunter GSP9700 and does all four corners for $45.00.

    I don't understand this. During all my tire swapping over past couple of months I have watched mine being done many times. After lifting the car it takes less then 5 minutes per wheel, 2-3 minutes on the GSP9700. $45+ tax.

    Re: Road Force Balancing Hunter GSP9700

    Actually, if my memory serves me well, the Cadillac dealer charged around $90 to road force balance all for wheels. The original quote ($149) I mentioned was over the phone, most likely from a body that wasn't aware of the prices... But if you can get it for $45, that's pretty amazing - cheaper than "regular" balancing over here...
