A wheel balance ensures that the weight of your wheels is evenly distributed around the tyre. When combined with a wheel alignment, balanced wheels prolong the life of your tyres, increase performance and improve your vehicle’s safety.
Indicators that your vehicle may require a wheel balance include:
- Shuddering in the steering wheel, particularly when travelling at higher speeds
- Uneven treadwear
- Rapid treadwear
- A combination of the above symptoms
Ignoring these warning signs can seriously impact on your vehicle’s overall performance and safety.
Your vehicle will also require a wheel balance whenever new tyres are fitted or when existing tyres are dismounted for repair.
