IMO, this one seems to do a good job: Hunter Road Force. You can click on the Locate A GSP9700 tab at the top left of the web page to locate shops in your area with this equipment.

Great equipment. It is a shame that not all tire service companies have this equipment. Always call ahead first, and, inquire.

Thanks. Have located several convenient dealers. Will heed the advice, and call ahead to make sure that it is available.

As others have said the Hunter Road Force Balance is the way to go. There is a shop in East Wareham on Rt. 28 that uses one, I've had my car in there for a balance. They are pretty Corvette friendly as well.

Yes, the Hunter seems to be the best. I ask the shop what they use before I let them do any work.
