What is Wheel Balancing, Quick Details!
Imperfections, blemishes in the rubber, and damage to a tire or rim can throw a wheel “out of balance.” That means that one section of the tire or rim is heavier. When that’s the case, the tire can wobble or even hop as it rolls down the road. That effect often can be heard, as well as felt in the steering wheel.
To balance a tire, we use computerized equipment that identifies where wheel weights should be applied to the rim. Those weights are used to counter-balance any heavy spots. See diagram below.
You should have your wheels balanced any time your tires are repaired or rotated.
Wheel Balancing, on the other hand allows the tires and wheels to spin without causing any vibrations. This is accomplished by checking for any heavy spots on the wheel-tire combination and compensating for it by placing a measured lead weight on the opposite site of the wheel from where the heavy spot is.
The symptoms of a wheel that is out of balance are:
Vibration in the steering wheel at certain highway speeds.
Vibration in the seat or floorboard at certain highway speeds.
Scalloped or cupped wear pattern on the tires
