DESCRIPTION
If a vehicle has body vibration or steering wheel shimmy while driving, and the root cause is determined to be tire balance, re-balance the tires using a Hunter GSP 9700/9712 balance machine. When using the Hunter GSP 9700/9712, be sure to use the following centering cones and cone/wheel set up listed below.

Using the appropriate centering cone ensures that the wheel will be properly centered to the centering cone.

To find the location of a GSP 9700/9712 near your dealer, visit Hunter's web site at http://www.gsp9700.com and click on "Find a GSP9700 Near You".

REPAIR PROCEDURE
1. Select the appropriate centering cone and use the following setup:
^ 4-stud wheels - use Hunter Cone # )51
^ 5-stud wheels - use Mazda Required Tool SST # )192-148-2


NOTE:
Wheel balance cones have an ID (inside diameter) of 40 mm which will fit most tire balancers.
