To help your vehicle drive in the safest and best condition possible, it is important to make sure that you have the car alignment and the wheel balancing checked on a regular basis. Many drivers ignore the signs of a lost alignment or balancing, and as a result, they will find their vehicles are difficult to keep going straight down the road.

So attention all drivers! Do you know what happens if you don’t balance your tires? Some of the signs to watch for include:

  • Swerving from side to side while driving on a straight road,
  • Feeling every little rock on the road, 
  • Vibrations in the steering wheel,
  • The steering wheel feels loose.

You may be asking, “What causes a tire to go “out of balance” and what does that mean? It doesn’t’ take much. Imperfections, blemishes in the rubber, and damage to a tire or rim can throw a wheel "out of balance,” meaning that one section of the tire or rim is heavier than in other spots. Especially while driving at higher speeds (i.e., the highway speed limit), an unbalanced tire will begin to shake and cause vibration in the steering wheel. This will eventually damage your tires, your suspension system, and steering system.

A wheel balancing service is a simple and relatively inexpensive tire service that will keep you driving safely. Do you know how a tire is balanced? One wheel at a time is removed from the car and placed on a computerized machine. The machine spins the tire around to determine which side is the heaviest. A small lead weight is then attached to the tire at a point to counter-balance any heavy spots. Once the weight is the same on all sides of the wheel, the wheel will spin on the machine with ease.

Many drivers are not sure if their vehicle needs an alignment or a wheel balancing as many of the signs are similar. Your tire service shop can determine what is needed and take care of it quickly and easily. Just remember that you should have your wheels balanced any time your tires are removed from your vehicle for a repair or rotation.
