Securing the Wheel to the balancer

Part of Lesson Plan: Balancing the Tire (updated) by Steve Nagle

Activity Overview / Details

Secure the tire onto the balancing machine mandrel by making sure the spring is placed on the mandrel before the cone. After the proper cone is placed on the mandrel, place the rim face out, on the cone and secure by tightening the large nut. This will force the wheel, centered on the cone, against the balancer. The hand tightened nut will ensure a tight fit.
