Help with Hunter numbers...

Can someone help interpret the road-force numbers you get from a Hunter GPS9700? Like what do the upward pointing values, 8 lb., 22 lb.,etc., mean? Are higher numbers better, or worse? And is a net right pull of 3 lb. significant, or not. Appreciate the education. Thanks,

This will help with the explanation...also a reason why some swear their tires/wheels are ok based on their shop using this equipment. However, not realizing there is much more to matching tires and wheels.
