Symptoms of Unbalanced Tires
Unbalanced tires lead to poor fuel performance and a choppy drive. One of the tell-tale signs is uneven wear and tear on your tires. If you notice them wearing out in some spots but not in others, the most likely culprit is bad balance.
Symptoms of unbalanced tires include:
- Poor fuel economy
- Vibration in the steering wheel, floor, or seat
- Wobbly or jumping sensation when driving
A number of factors can cause tire imbalance, including:
- Tire wearing in
- Tire weights falling off
- Tires moving from the rim
- A dent in the tire rim
- Mud and other debris deposited on the wheels
- Uneven tire wear
- Bent wheels
Many of the above factors can be caused by everyday wear and tear. For smooth and safe drivability, it is important to have your tires balanced every two years. If you are purchasing new tires, they should be evenly balanced before they are installed. At RedLine TireShop, we work with each client to determine their needs for tire balancing. We’ll be happy to take a look at your vehicle, so if you think you may need your tires balanced, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Wheel Balancing: Inspection and Balancing
Although tire balancing is quite a simple process, it is also quite precise. The service requires experienced professionals and proper equipment.
To fix unbalanced tires, each wheel is removed from the vehicle and is mounted on a balancing machine. The machine will spin and measure the vibrations in the tires. From there,
we will be able to tell if the weight in the tire is spread out evenly.
If the weight is unbalanced, small weights will be added to the tire. We work with diligence and precision, carefully adding weight until the wheel is even, balanced, and 100% true. Once the weight is distributed evenly, the tires will roll smoothly once again.
Enjoy a Smoother Drive
Tire balancing is one of those things you don’t think you need until you feel the difference. But once you feel the difference, you’ll know there’s no going back.
