Truck Wheel Balancing

truck wheel balancing

    wheel balancing
  • A procedure that ensures that the weight of the wheel is distributed evenly to improve performance and cut tire wear. Static balancing distributes the weight of the wheel evenly around the axle or Spindle and is done with the wheels off the vehicle.

  • The method of reducing the hammer blow caused by the action of the pistons driving the cranks as the crank approaches bottom dead centre. Driving wheels had weights fitted into their rims to act as a counter balance. (PRC)

  • hand truck: a handcart that has a frame with two low wheels and a ledge at the bottom and handles at the top; used to move crates or other heavy objects

  • Barter or exchange

  • convey (goods etc.) by truck; "truck fresh vegetables across the mountains"

This image was taken with an extreme 15 mm wide angle, so the truck drove by just a meter away. The speed of the truck was quite slow (appr. 30 km/h), so I could get the chance to try different angles.

Shutter speed was only 1/25, but enough to force the motion into the image. I used the 12-24 DX lens from Nikon, but forced the D700 to FX, so I could use the full wide angle of the lens. I did have to stamp away a bit of the dark corners.
Motion blur 100% out of the camera.

White balance was set to cloudy, to get a bit of a warm feeling/sun fall. The image was taken in the early afternoon.

I like the composition of these two red rim wheels. Each at the opposite cross direction of the picture and gives a good balance view. If you look carefully in the center of the rim, my reflaction was captured in both rims. Need to make myself invisible attending to such event in future.
