What it does:
Out of balance tires can lead to uneven wear, vibration and potentially unsafe driving performance. It is very important to balance tires frequently based on your car’s requirements.
When do wheels need to be balanced:
Tires are balanced when you replace 2 or 4 tires on your automobile. Because tires wear depending on driving routines and road conditions, unequal wear will start to become recognizable after the first 1,000-2,000 miles of usage. Tires must be checked for balance every 4,000-6,000 miles. Our technicians can easily help identify whether your tires should be rotated and balanced based on wear or mileage.
How to tell if your tires require balancing:
- Vibrations when driving
- Uneven tread wear
- Steering that becomes less smooth over the life of the tires
- Pulling to one side
The benefits of balanced tires are:
- Smoother ride
- Better miles per gallon
- More even tire wear
- Prolonged life of tires and drive train parts
IMPORTANT: It is not advised to replace just one tire as this might create major problems to the alignment, balance and handling of the vehicle.
