Wheel balancing is different from a wheel alignment. Unbalanced tires can cause uneven tire wear and vibration. Having your tires balanced corrects the balance of the tire and wheel assembly.
Some signs that you need to have your vehicle's wheels balanced are:
- Vehicle shakes while driving
- Uneven tire wear
- Tire cupping
- Speed related issues (a problem happens at a certain speed but disappears at a different speed)
By making sure that the optimal surface of the tire is in contact with the road, you will extend the life of your tire and protect critical suspension pieces. At Boyd's, we have a state of the art Road Force machine that simulates a variety of terrain conditions to test your tires for all road and surface types.
