Wheel Products by McCourt has introduced the WP8300 wheel balancer with an LCD display to make tire calibration quick and easy.

The tire optimization feature and the space-saving hood increase the operator’s safety, as well, the company says. Standard accessories include three passenger cones, a light truck cone and spacer, a quick release wing nut, caliper and wheel weight hammers. 

The WP8300 comes with a hidden weight program and is accurate to one gram. It can be programmed for use by multiple operators and also includes an easy-to-use automatic data entry system and a weight saver program.

The balancer works on tires with diameters up to 42 inches, rim widths of 1.5 inches to 20 inches and rim diameters of 10 inches to 30 inches. It will hold tires that weigh up to 165 pounds and spin them in less than five seconds.

Rugged construction assures a long life of everyday use, the company reports. Optional accessories include motorcycle adapters and a pin plate kit to provide additional versatility.

“In these times when every shop owner questions the value of every shop purchase, you’ll want to take a look at this wheel balancer,” says Senior Vice President Vince Murdocco. “We’ve built a lot of features into it to improve the efficiency of any tire service shop that uses it.”
