Wheel and Tire Balancing
Frequently Asked Questions
Every tire and wheel manufactured has a ‘high’ and ‘low’ point of weight. Balancing helps to redistribute that weight – a tire that is unbalanced will cause a vibration, particularly at highway speeds.
Tires, particularly ones with good grip, can experience rim slippage – meaning the torque of the vehicle can cause the wheels to slip just a bit on the stationary tire – causing the wheel balancing to change. Occasionally, wheel weights can also fall off and worn tires may also require different weight distribution.
