Not looking for cheapest price so much as I'm wondering if there are other scale solutions out there? Or are these it for $1000 scales?

I purchased a REBCO set about 5 years ago at a trade show fpr $1050.

You want to buy the digital and they are all going to be above a grand--probably even used.

Bill, don't forget the Ruggles type scales.

Are the ruggles' scales, measurements repeatable?

Thanks very much for the ebay link. First time I'd seen what these things are like. I like the built-in bearings to settle the suspension, and some even have turn plates.

It looks to me like they would be very sensitive to the lateral placement of the tire on the pad - or do I have my physics mixed up? I'm thinking you'd have to carefully mark the center of the tire and carefully position that at the center of the pad. Miss by an 8th and you're off by x%.
