HUNTER TIRE CHANGER
This tire changer is designed to work with all of today’s modern wheel and tire assemblies from sizes 12” to 24” rim size and up to 38” tire radius size. Low profile tires, not a problem. This machine has the ability to install low profile tire as small as 30 series tires. This machine handles all types of wheels with ease and eliminates the possibility of rim damage to steel and aluminum rims.
Service price: $6 for removal and installation of each wheel
HUNTER TIRE BALANCER
This tire balancer is a “State of the Art” fully electronic spin Balancer. This unit is named “Smart Weight” which means it is designed to apply the least amount of weight needed to balance a complete rim and tire assembly. For wheels with wide spoke configurations, this unit can allow for internal stick weights to be applied behind the spoke to eliminate the view of weights applied and yet provide a perfect wheel and tire balance for your ride.
Service price: $6 per wheel for electronic weight saving wheel balance.

We now offer Vehicle Air Conditioning service. Our new complete automatic A/C machine gives us the ability to assist you in your automotive air conditioning needs. Our new A/C recycler for R134a systems (found on all 1996 and newer vehicles) has the ability to evacuate and recharge your Auto A/C system.
Can’t find the Freon leak within the system?
We also now have a Refrigerant Leak Detector that can assist with finding those hard to find leaks so you can identify the cause of the leak and repair it right the first time.
Service price: $40 plus Freon per pound.
If your a/c system is not as cold as it used to be, it may be time to perform service to your air conditioning system.
