Tire Balancing at Car Salon

How can I know if I need to have my tires balanced?

Tire balancing is a maintenance procedure for your wheel and tire combo. It ensures that the unit’s weight is distributed equally over its whole circumference. Uneven and faster tread wear, poor fuel economy, and vibration in the steering wheel, floorboard, or seat that grows worse at higher speeds are all classic indications of out-of-balance tires.

The tire will roll smoothly when all parts of the wheel-tire unit are as evenly weighted as possible. This ensures that it wears evenly and lasts as long as possible. Balancing also helps with ride comfort: Vibration is caused by unbalanced tires that wobble or jump up and down. You’ll probably experience vibration in the steering wheel if a front tire isn’t balanced properly. The shaking will be noticeable in the seat or the floor if the problem is in the back.

When to Get Tire Balancing Done:

  • You feel a vibration in the steering wheel, the floorboard, or your seat.
  • You get them rotated, generally every 5,000 miles.
  • At the very least every two years, once yearly if you drive rough roads.
  • You get a flat and repair a tire.
  • You buy any new tire(s).
  • A weight that used to be on the rim falls off.
  • You notice uneven tire wear.

Although tire balancing and rotation are frequently performed together, they are not the same service. Tire rotation is the process of switching the front and back wheels of a vehicle to equal out tread wear. It’s easier to accomplish both at the same time because they both need to remove each wheel.

An imbalanced tire and wheel assembly, or something else – a bent wheel, a broken tire (which won’t be rectified by balancing), worn suspension elements, or other aging components — could produce vibration when driving. If you notice a vibration, seek repairs right away. When your tires are balanced, you’ll avoid other issues and have a smoother ride.
