Balancing Act: Getting the right wheel balance.

 

 

Unbalanced wheels give a very uncomfortable driving experience and can ultimately damage your vehicle.

People usually just check the air pressure of their wheels and think that they’re good to go.  But having the right air pressure isn’t enough and lack of maintenance may cost you more in the future. Other than your tyres, unbalanced wheels can cause damage to your vehicle’s suspension, steering and rotating components.


So how do you know if your wheels are unbalanced?

If your steering wheel is unsteady and tends to wobble, then your front wheels may not be balanced. If you feel vibrations on your seat or on the floorboard, then it might be your rear wheels.

 

Wheel imbalance causes uneven rotation and uneven load distribution to your vehicle. This can be very damaging and dangerous to you and your vehicle at the same time. Properly balanced wheels means your tyres are getting correct contact with the road ensuring you a smooth drive. It’s all about maintaining the control and road safety of your vehicle.

How often should you get your wheels checked?
In general, you should get your wheel balance checked every year. If you usually drive on bumpy roads and uneven terrain, you may want to have those wheels checked more often specially if you start to feel the imbalance on your vehicle. It is also advisable to have them checked when you get new tyres or rims.

 

So if you start feeling those (not so good) vibrations in your car, feel free to contact us and have it checked. We have the right equipment and super skilled staff that can get those wheels right back on track.
