European Car Specialists

Carrsmith Auto Repair only services the European vehicles that are listed below. Thank you.

Carrsmith Auto Repair is one of the few European auto repair shops in the Gainesville area to have a Road Force® Elite Wheel Balancer from Hunter Engineering. The Road Force® Elite is what Carrsmith Auto Repair uses for road force balancing, also referred to as ride matching. When it comes to fixing runout or force variation vibrations, road force balancing provides the most effective results.

Our Road Force® Elite machine employs a load-roller that recreates the forces of the road, gathering information on the uniformity of a tire & wheel package.

The balancer measures runout and force variation of the entire wheel and tire system. Our technicians are provided with a detailed picture of how a client's tire and wheel combination are working together as the balancer is able to measure the radial and lateral runout of the tire and wheel separately.
