With traditional wheel balancing, a wheel is considered balanced when the residual imbalance is less than 5 grams per plane, independent of the wheel’s dimensions and weight.
The vibration a driver perceives when driving, considering whatever imbalance, also sources from the wheel’s weight and shape. The heavier the wheel is the less a residual imbalance will be perceived by the driver. On the other hand, with a light wheel, even with a minimal residual imbalance, the driver will sense noticeable vibrations on the steering wheel.
The innovative tolerance calculation system AutoAdaptive Mode is based on the evaluation of the residual imbalance limit value corresponding to an acceptable perceived vibration. For each wheel that is balanced, the software AutoAdaptive Mode detects weight and dimensions and calculates the tolerance value that will cancel any vibration perceived on the steering wheel. AutoAdaptive Mode grants the highest comfort when driving, and together with OPB Program, saves balancing time.
