Tire Balancing

Feb 6, 2013

Often confused with wheel alignment, a properly balanced wheel is a perfectly tuned
wheel-tire combination. This is accomplished by placing measured lead weights
on the opposite side of the heavy spot.

How do I know if I need my wheels balanced?

Is your vehicle vibrating at certain speeds? If so, chances are your wheel is out of
balance. One section of the tire is heavier than the other because it's endured
more exposure to the friction and heat of the road. Come in for prompt,
professional service—most people are very satisfied with the difference such a
simple and inexpensive procedure makes. Look for these signs, and if you find
either one, come see us:

-Cupping, scalloped, erratic wear pattern on tires.

-Vibration in steering wheel, seat, or floorboard at certain speeds.
