Do to my budget I like the integy tire truer If and when my budget increases I will get a hudy because I like the fact you can true your tire down all at one time and not little bit at a time.

The Hudy fully automatic tyre truer, its powerful and its got a good cutting blade and you only have to set size and press 1 button and it does it properly

Meh....well the integy came in. Guess it's time to go give it a try. It was that one or the Ofna and the Integy came in sooner, but it's ok.

Let us know what u think. Did you order both or did your lhs get those in?

If so try em both see what works best. Id like to hear a comparison. BTW watch out for the screws on the integy , all 3 units I checked out had major problems with the screws being loose. I had to take 2 apart to align and screw things on correct.

Is this the correct way to cut tires ?

I take the tire #1 and start cutting it .... lets say 2mm cut. So I start cutting it by adjusting the knob each time the cutter move back and forth until 2mm cut is met. This is similar like cutting the comm in electric cars.

Here is my question : For tires #2, #3, and so on. Should I just cut it right away OR re-adjust the knob back to zero position and start cutting like like tire #1 ?? Is it okay to right away cut 2mm ?

Second Question : The angle of blade / cutter ? 180 degree ? 45 degree ?

AI- I put aside the Hudy one...just too expensive and got the integy truer. The ofna he told me he'd order if he had a prob getting the integy. I'm going to get it with a few clutch shoes for my centax.

ASW, that is the way I do it. There times when I take as much as 7-8 mm off of a 45 shore front tire and dont have a problem. JUst make sure to slow the tool speed down to as slow as it will go and you shouldn't have a problem. Make sur eyou are standing there when making big cuts though unless you have to reverse it real quick because it bogged down.

What truer are you using? I wouldn't even think about trying to cut more than 2mm with my Integy.

I just got myself a Full Automatic from OFNA 2 days ago. Seems to be good quality and HD motor.

Have not started testing it as yet as my HS made an error and sent me the wrong hub.

Well let you all know if I run into any problems.

Cost $255

Hudy makes the best truers in my opinion.

Hudy does cost a little more, but I can cut down purples/plaids to about 56-58mm with one pass without any bogging. My buddy has the smaller 110v version and it boggs a little with the bigger cuts, about the same as the Corrally/Ofna ones. I've had it for about three years now, and I got it used, still no problems. I would definately recommend getting the DC version though.

Has anyone tried the RD logics tire truer ? I have an old cobra track side and i'm thinking of upgrading. ( hudy, 3r or rd logics ).
