Did you know that every time a wheel is first mounted onto the axle with a new tire, it has to be balanced? The goal is to make sure the weight is even around the axle. Your wheel balance is checked on a wheel balancing machine that can sense as little as 1/4 ounce difference in weight around the wheel. To balance the tires, the technician places tiny offsetting weights at specific points around the wheel. If your tire is not balanced, even a 1/4 ounce difference on a wheel can create enough momentum to cause serious vibration that can be felt in the steering wheel, seat, or floorboards. Unbalanced tires also put uneven pressure on the treads, as tires get too hot and wear unevenly. Tire imbalance can also strain the wheel bearings and suspension system, causing more damage down the road.
Every bump and hole you hit affects balance, and so does tire wear. Over time, your tires get out of balance again. That’s why it’s important to have tires balanced regularly. It’s a good idea to have your tires rotated and balanced every 4,000 to 6,000 miles.
