Control Vibration & Tyre Wear.
Wheel Balancing ensures that your tyres and wheels don’t have a heavy spot that may cause vibration and premature tyre wear. A tyre is out of balance when one section of the tyre is heavier than the others.
A wheel balance redistributes weight around the tyre to extend the life of your tyres and increase your vehicles safety.
Unbalanced tyres may also cause accelerated wear of your shock absorbers, struts and other steering and suspension components.
Your vehicles wheels should be balanced: When replacing your tyres, When rotating your tyres, If your steering wheel is vibrating, If your tyres are particularly noisy.
Regular rotation of tyres is a proven method for promoting even wear and therefore extending tread life. If uneven wear has occurred, this may be due to worn suspension components, vehicle misalignment or incorrect tyre balance. These concerns cannot be corrected by simply rotating the tyres.
Front to back same side rotation is acceptable when tyres are wearing unevenly. If the spare is included in the rotation it should be exchanged with the tyre allocated to the right hand rear position.
