When you have your tires balanced, it ensures that the weight is balanced evenly across the tires. Factory trained specialists put the wheel and tire on a machine that balances tires. The wheel and tire spin while the machine takes measurements. These measurements tell the specialist if the weight is evenly spread and if weight needs to be added and where.
When your tires are completely balanced, your tires will move smoothly on the ground which provides you a better ride. Your tires will wear evenly and last longer. You should have your tires balanced every time you have your tires rotated. You should get your tires balanced once every 24 months. If you have a flat tire and get it repaired, you should also have your tires balanced. Any time you buy new tires, you should have them balanced. There is a weight on the rim, if that falls off, you need to have your tires balanced.
Over time and with normal driving, your tires wear and become out of balance. If your tires are out of balance, they wear unevenly and the tread wears faster than normal. It can cause your vehicle to have below average fuel consumption and cause you to spend more money at the gas pump. When your tires are out of balance, you will feel a vibration in your steering wheel or the floor and it may get worse at higher speeds. You need to schedule an appointment because if you do not address imbalanced tires, you could cost yourself more money in tires and gas.
