Wheel Balancing & Alignment In Perth
A wheel balance or wheel alignment is done when one section of your tyres is heavier than the others. This service will redistribute the weight evenly throughout all 4 tyres, extending the life of your tyres, increasing your vehicles performance on the road and making your vehicle safer.
If your wheels are out of balance you may notice some of the following symptoms:
- Vibration in the steering column
- Car pulling to one side
- Vibration in the seat or floorboard
- ‘Cupped’ wear patterns on your tyres
A wheel balance involves suspending your wheel on special balancing machine that spins the wheel and tyre to locate the heavier part of the tyre. Our experts will then be able to rectify any balancing issues by attaching weights on the opposing side to redistribute the weight.
Wheel balancing is an important part of your cars maintenance. Staying on top of this will give you more fuel economy as it lowers your tyres resistance on the road, will reduce the wear of your tyres, keep your shock absorbers in good condition and ensure your steering is functioning as it should be.
