The best fully automatic tire truer with all the safe guards and carbide cutting blade is GQ Ultra X V2. Comes with a great silver carry case. Very accurate setting for cut size as compared to others. This will cut all size tires down to 1:12th. Here's the best part... price!!! Take a look

It might be good, it might not, but the best part is not the price @.. $450!

The best tire truer is the Hudy Full Auto, period, there is no better one. They are incredibly accurate, they're powerfull, and best of all, they hold thier value for ever. One of the guys that races with us has one from his granpa, I dont even know how old it is, its a purple one, and that thing still works as if he bought yesterday. I use an Ofna one right now, but the moment I have the money, Im getting a Hudy.

It comes down to how much you can spend, but you get what you pay for. The GQ and Hudy do seem to be the best out.

So I'm new at this but what would make one truer worth 4 times more than another? Is there a performance advantage to be had by using the more expensive ones or is just for convenience?

Thanks!
