i havent used either one (but i do use an integy auto tire truer), and from looking at both truers you posted, i suggest getting the one with the replaceable arbor (the first link) so you can true foams for different types of cars. also, the motor in this truer looks to be a larger, heavier duty type compared to the other one (2nd link). you do have to buy a separate arbor for each type of rim that you will be truing (eg. touring, pan, 1/8, etc.) and that will cost you at least $15-$20 each arbor.

i think one of the truers you posted has a built in hex adapter (the 2nd link) that can be used for touring cars only

why not buy the integy automated truer? if you buy online (tower has discount codes), the discounted price may be pretty close to the manual truers

also, you may find additional tire truer info in this thread (from nitro onroad forum) ...

I own the Integy true cut lathe and all I can say is it is awsome. I was even able to bend a piece of heavy duty lexan into a guard so the foam doesnt fly around.

I also have the tru-cut, and it works great. I only have only one motor to worry about, and the slides are sufficently protected from the dust. It uses standard arbors from the likes of Hudy, Ofna and ofcourse Integy. The integy arbors run pretty true, too. I found with a weaker power supply the motor does bog a little, but since our shop acquired a 35 - 40 amp 12v power supply, I have just as much power as the Hudy or Ofna.

I did use an Ofna auto truer the other night and love the auto feature. But if it were that or the extra $100 to buy wheels with, I'd take the wheels and deal with turning the tires manually.
