Wheel balancing is often confused with wheel alignment, but both processes are different and equally important to making sure your vehicle drives smoothly. Wheel balancing ensures your tires spin without vibrations. Irregularities in wheel and tire manufacture or tire wear and tear can cause such vibrations. Wheel balancing minimizes these vibrations, so you don’t feel them in the steering wheel, seat or floorboard.
At Greybeard Automotive, we recommend you get your tires and wheels balanced when they are first installed and after every 10,000 to 12,000 miles as a maintenance measure. Unbalanced tires will lead to vibrations, uneven tire wear, and eventually dangerous driving conditions. Regular wheel balancing service helps extend the life of your tires and, overall, improve your vehicle’s handling and performance.
Every car, truck or SUV has different requirements, but most vehicles need wheel alignment inspections every year, and this applies to those throughout Livingston, MT.
