Experts at Tyre Point outlets balance your wheels to ensure that your tyres are spinning around evenly, because it is important for optimal driving performance.

Wheel-balance service includes

  • Tire and wheel removal
  • Mounting each wheel on a state-of-the-art balancing machine
  • Spinning each wheel to make sure the weight of the wheel and tyre are balanced evenly around the axle
  • Detecting and locating any imbalance
  • Attaching a lead weight on the opposite side of the tire to compensate for weight differences
  • Remounting tyres and wheels

Types of imbalance

A tyre or rim which gets Imperfections, blemishes in the rubber can throw a wheel “out of balance.” Which makes the one section of the tyre or rim heavier than the other sections. Due to this heaviness, the tyre can wobble or even jump as it rolls down to the road. Wheel balancers are used to identify where wheel weights should be applied to the rim. Those weights are used to balance any heavy spots.

Below is a picture which will help you to know what this means, there is a heavy spot on your wheel. A heavy spot prevents tyres from rotating in a tightly focused circular motion. Vibrations, poor handling, lower gas mileage, and uneven tyre wear is mainly caused due to Weight differences of less than an ounce. The balancing system directs a technician to put a counterweight on the rim’s outer exterior to offset the unevenness. When the balancing system tests for almost perfect weight distribution, the assembly is in balance and it will not vibrate.

There are three types of imbalances:

Static Imbalance – this Occurs when there is a heavy or light spot in the tyre that prevents the tyre from rolling consistently and this causes the tyre and wheel to experience an up-and-down motion. This creates a hop or vertical vibration. This imbalance is corrected only in one axial plane.

Couple Imbalance – is where the mass axis intersects the running axis. This type of imbalance is usually corrected in two planes.

Dynamic Imbalance – this Occurs when there is unequal weight on one or both sides of the tyre/wheel assembly’s lateral centerline, this creates a side-to-side wobble.  This imbalance is corrected in two planes.

As a conclusion, it is highly recommended to keep track of your vehicle health and have regular/routine checkups of your vehicle. It will save you money, save your car and most important thing this provides safety for you and your family.
