Why Get Your Wheels Balanced?
If a wheel is unbalanced on the road, it can really impact the way a car drives. The car might bounce or vibrate while driving. It can also make a noise. It’s really distracting while you’re driving and it is an easy fix. Balancing is necessary because almost every tire or weight assembly has some kind of imbalance. As the tires wear, the balance will also change over time. When you’re swapping seasonal tires or rotating tires, it is also the ideal time to get them balanced.
What Happens If You Don’t Get Your Wheels and Tires Balanced?
Getting your wheels balanced helps the tires to wear more evenly. This can save you money in the long run by helping the tires to last longer. It is also easier on your suspension system without unnecessary vibration and bouncing. Even a small amount of imbalance, like a quarter of an ounce, can have a big impact on the car. Tiny shifts in weight can eventually add up to a pretty meaningful imbalance. An imbalanced set of tires can also strain the suspension system and wheel bearings. If you’re noticing uneven tread wear, then that is an indication of an imbalance. Many drivers also begin to notice a vibration at speeds over 40 mph if the tires are imbalanced. This can be easily fixed.
