As a car owner, you should pay a close attention to your vehicle components. The most neglected services are the balancing of the wheel. Many of the car owners don’t realize the importance of the¬†wheel balancing. In order to run your car smoothly and to extend the life of the tires, you must keep a check on the wheel balancing. Now let us discuss what is wheel balancing?

In simple terms, the wheel balancing prevents the tires and wheels to spin without causing any vibrations. This can be prevented by checking any heavy spots on the wheel-tire combination and compensating for it by placing a measured lead weight on the opposite side of the wheel from where the heavy spot is.

Symptoms that show that wheel is out of balance:

  • Vibration in the steering wheel at certain speeds.
  • Vibration in the seat or floorboard at certain highway speeds.
  • The scalloped or cupped wear pattern on the tires.

A tire is out of balance when one section is out of balance. To balance a wheel, the technician will mount it on a balancing machine which spins the wheel to locate the heavier part. He will then compensate for the heavy part by attaching a lead weight on the opposite side.
