Wheel Balancing and Tyre Services

Wheel balancing also know as tyre balancing is the process of equalizing the weight of the combined tyre and wheel assembly to ensure it spins smoothly at high speeds. Balancing therefore involves putting the wheel/tyre assembly on a balancer which then centers the wheel and spins it to locate accurately locate where the weights should be placed. In essence, wheels and tyres are never exactly the same weight all around. The wheel’s valve stem home will usually subtract a small amount of weight from one side of the wheel. Tyres will have a slight weight imbalance, whether from the joining point of the cap plies or simply from a slight deviation in the shape of the wheel. At high speeds, a tiny imbalance in weight can easily become a large imbalance in centrifugal force, causing the wheel/tyre assembly to spin with a kind of “galumphing” motion. This usually translates into vibration in the car as well as some very irregular and damaging wear on the tyres. It is therefore important to ensure that wheel balancing is routinely done. We carry out this procedure using a computerized wheel balancing machine and digital tyre replacement.
