Wheel & Tyre Balancing
A wheel balance, also referred to as a tyre balance, ensures that the weight of your wheels is evenly distributed around the tyre.
When combined with a wheel alignment, balanced wheels prolong the life of your tyres, increase performance and improve your vehicle’s safety.
FAQ about wheel balancing
Indicators that your vehicle may require a wheel balance include:
- Shuddering in the steering wheel, particularly when traveling at higher speeds
- Uneven treadwear
- Rapid treadwear
- A combination of the above symptoms
Ignoring these warning signs can seriously impact on your vehicle’s overall performance and safety.
It is best practice to perform a wheel balance whenever new tyres are fitted or when existing tyres are dismounted for repair.
If your wheels are imbalanced this can lead to vibrations experienced through the steering wheel and driver’s seat (particularly when traveling at higher speeds), excessive tyre wear, and potentially more serious issues, including damage to the suspension.
