Common Wheel Balancing questions
What is a wheel balance?
A wheel balance is performed to balance the weight of your tyre and wheel assembly so that it rotates smoothly at velocity. This is done by taking the wheel off the vehicle and placing it on a wheel balancing machine and spinning it for approximately 10 seconds. This produces a read out of how many and where any weights need to be placed to ensure the wheel spins evenly and without vibration.
What is the difference between a wheel alignment and a wheel balance?
When should I get my wheels balanced?
If you’re experiencing any kind of wheel vibration, shaking or any kind of steering ‘wobble,’ there’s a very good chance you need a wheel balance. Uneven tyre wear can also be a sign that it's time for a balancing. You may also want to have your tyres balanced during your next tyre rotation, after a tyre repair, or as part of your next scheduled Tony's maintenance.
