Incorrect balancing not only causes vibration in the steering wheel and dashboard but can also cost you money! Incorrect balancing causes premature wear of tyres and rapid wear of suspension parts.
If you find that your steering ‘wobbles’ above a certain speed, this may be a sign that your wheels are not balanced properly. If left, this can not only be uncomfortable to drive, but may affect the performance of your vehicle’s:
- Fuel economy
- Tyres against uneven and increased wear
- Suspension and steering components
- Road holding and handling characteristics
When you purchase any new tyres we will always balance your wheels (this is always included in the tyre price). The reason for this is that new tyres will often have inconsistencies in the rubber compound – wheel balancing will take account of this and encourage even wear on your new tyres.
You should also have your wheels checked or balanced after an impact such as a kerb, pothole or stone, when a tyre looks abnormal or every 10,000 miles.
TyreFinders have the latest balancing equipment which allows wheels to be balanced with great accuracy, to the nearest gram.
