What is a Wheel Balancing?
Distinct from tire alignment, tire or wheel balancing refers to compensation for any weight imbalances in the tire/wheel combination and is often performed in conjunction with wheel alignment.
There are two basic types of tire/wheel imbalance that need correction:
- static (single plane)
- dynamic (dual plane)
When should I get a Wheel Alignment?
Having tires aligned and balanced every 8,000 to 10,000 kilometers can help maximize their lifespan and overall performance.
