If you feel vibrations on the steering wheel, that means your wheels needs to be balanced.
All vibrations on the wheels will damage your suspension and steering components.
On top of that all rotating parts and tyres will result in premature wearing.
Correctly balanced wheels help to eliminate vibration and avoid premature wear caused by an imbalance in the rotating wheel and tyre assembly.
The first sign that your wheels may be out of balance is when your steering wheel starts to wobble above a certain speed.
Balancing is equally important for both front and rear wheels.
Wheels are balanced on a machine that rotates the tyre and wheel assembly and automatically calculates the location of the balance counter weight.
Well balanced wheels will result in smoother and more comfortable ride and better wear from your tyres, again saving you time and money.
First symptoms of wheel balance problems
- Steering wobble
- Excessive wheel noise
- Uneven tyre wear
These days alloy wheels are fitted to most vehicles as standard. They make your car look much more attractive and increase quality of driving.
