Wheel Balancing

Wheel balancing is a must anytime tires are mounted on wheels. The wheel may also require rebalancing if a tire has been dismounted for repair.

Wheel balancing provides a smoother ride by minimizing tire vibration and bounce. This helps improve traction, steering control and extends the life of your tires. But no matter how carefully wheels and tires are balanced, they will eventually lose their balance. As the tread wears, the distribution of weight around the circumference of a tire changes altering the balance of the tire and wheel assembly. Eventually the tire may have to be rebalanced because only 1/4 ounce of imbalance can produce a noticeable vibration.
