One of our first uses of the Haweka QuickPlate was on this Porsche 911 Carrera S 992 back in November which came in for a full set of Michelin Pilot Alpin 5 NA5 Porsche fitment winter tyres in 245/35R20 and 305/30R21. Using the QuickPlate system the team at our Horncastle branch were able to make sure the tyre and wheel combination were balanced perfectly.
The Haweka QuickPlate enables us to mount the wheel on the wheel balancer just like the wheel would be mounted on the vehicle hub. This simulates the hub of the vehicle, X-axis alignment (centre of wheel) and the QuickPlate simulates the wheel nuts. Mounting the wheel in this way applies equal pressure to the stud holes as well as locating the wheel on the spigot correctly, therefor optimising the centring of the wheel on the balancer.
You can find out more about the benefits of the Haweka QuickPlate in our blog about precision wheel balancing at Bush Tyres centres.
