The Basics Behind Computerized Wheel Balancing Services at Tire Shak

Professionals use computerized wheel balancers to pinpoint weight differentiation within a tire and wheel assembly. Computerized wheel balancers are highly accurate machines that identify the weight distribution problem areas within an assembly. Ideally, a tire and its wheel should complement one-another, with both maintaining an equal amount of weight throughout the assembly. In a perfect assembly, air will be even throughout the tire, and the wheel will be perfectly round in shape. However, tires and wheels are nearly never perfect. In fact, some tire manufacturers mark the lightest part of a tire so that drivers can easily match it to the heaviest part of the wheel. Both time and normal tire and wheel usage will also gradually add imbalance to a tire and wheel assembly’s weight distribution. The smallest difference in weight within an assembly can cause a great amount of damage and annoyance. A computerized wheel balancing service will return the balance of your car or truck’s wheels to factory specifications.



Why Should You Have Computerized Wheel Balancing Services Performed at Tire Shak?

Tire and wheel assemblies are prone to various weight discrepancies that can cause a multitude of problems for motorists. If you experience vibrations in your vehicle, hear squeals from your tires, or feel your vehicle pulling in one direction, then one or more of your tire and wheel assemblies may be in need of rebalancing. Fortunately, our staff is here to help with all your balancing needs. During this process, our experts will mount your wheel on the computerized wheel balancing machine and spin it. Acting upon the information we receive from our computerized wheel balancing equipment, our service staff will apply additional weight to the indicated areas in order to alleviate vibrations and help the assembly roll more smoothly. With your tires and wheels properly balanced, you can enjoy an overall smoother ride, greater control, and longer lasting tires.

We proudly service the Computerized Wheel Balancing needs of customers in Ansonia, CT, Seymour, CT, Oxford, CT, and surrounding areas.
