Wheel Balancing at 804 Auto Repair

Posted November 7, 2021 7:44 AM

So you love your job, and your family life is great. Congratulations! You have achieved balance. But can you say the same for your wheels? North Chesterfield drivers can tell if their tires are out of balance by vibrations at higher speeds on VA roads. If one of the front tires is out, you feel the vibration in the steering wheel. If it's a back tire, you'll feel the vibration in your seat.

Tires and wheels are pretty heavy. When a tire is mounted on a wheel at 804 Auto Repair, it is usually not perfectly balanced. So the technician will spin the tire on a machine to determine where it's too heavy. He will then place weights on the wheels in strategic locations to balance it out. When a tire is out of balance, it actually bounces down the road instead of rolling smoothly. Since the average size tire rotates at about 850 revolutions per minute at 60 mph/97 kph, it is actually slamming into the pavement 14 times a second. That's where you get your vibration.

Most people in North Chesterfield are surprised at how smoothly their car rides after balancing all four wheels.

Most high-quality tires sold in North Chesterfield hold their balance pretty well. They just get out of balance gradually with normal wear and tear. If you suddenly feel a vibration, it is probably because you lost a wheel balancing weight along the way. Definitely get a balance at 804 Auto Repair in North Chesterfield if you feel a vibration, change your rims or have a flat repaired. Putting off a needed balance job leads to excessive and tire wear, wear to your shocks, struts, steering and suspension parts. Wheel balancing not only improves your ride and handling, but also can save you some repair bills and possibly an accident. Additionally, you will get better fuel economy.

Some North Chesterfield area drivers have their tires balanced at every rotation. Others do it every other time. Check your owner's manual for your requirements, or ask your friendly service advisor at 804 Auto Repair. Doing this will put you on the path to mechanical wheel balance.
