Tire Balancing

Tire Balancing is important to prolong the life of your tires, as well as increase the essential safety of your vehicle. 

What it does: Out of balance tires may lead to unequal wear, vibration and possibly risky driving performance. It is essential to balance tires often according to your automobile's requirements.

When do wheels need to be balanced: Tires are balanced when you switch out 2 or 4 tires on your automobile. Due to the fact that tires wear depending on driving habits and road conditions, uneven wear will certainly start to become obvious after the first 1,000-2,000 miles of usage. Tires should be inspected for balance every 4,000-6,000 miles. Our mechanics can help identify whether your tires have to be rotated and balanced based upon wear or mileage.

IMPORTANT: It is not advised to replace just one tire as this might cause major problems to the alignment, balance and handling of the vehicle.

Ways to recognize if your tires require balancing:

  • Vibrations when steering
  • Uneven tread wear
  • Driving that becomes much less smooth over the life of the tires
  • Pulling to one side

The benefits of balanced tires are:

  • Smoother driving experience
  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • A lot more even tire wear
  • Extended life of tires and drive train parts
