Why Do I Need to Balance My Tires?

how to inspect

There are a number of routine car service procedures that you might neglect now and then. Sure, most Summit area drivers remember they need oil changes at certain intervals, but some may forget other important routine service like getting their wheels balanced. 

It’s important to have done, though. Tire balancing involves the addition of counterweights to ensure each wheel is carrying the same amount of vehicle weight, which is extra important in an all-wheel drive vehicle like most Subaru models

Poorly-balanced tires can produce annoying vibrations when driving, particularly at high speeds. That can also lead to serious damage, causing your tires to wear out unevenly and excess strain on the vehicle’s axles, mounts, and wheels themselves.

Other Causes of Tire Vibration

If you’re feeling your car vibrate, it could be a result of unbalanced wheels, or it could be caused by any number of other situations, such as:

  • A bent wheel
  • Worn out tires
  • Poor wheel alignment
  • Brake wear
  • Suspension problems
  • Wheel-to-axle mounting issues

Get Your Wheels Balanced near Summit 

If your car is producing some uncomfortable vibrations, don’t hesitate to get it checked out here at our Subaru service center near Summit. We can diagnose the issue and easily balance your wheels for optimal driving.

Even if you’re not noticing major vibrations, it’s still worth having your wheels checked out and balanced when you come in for other service. Because your wheels (and whole vehicle) can shift over time as you cruise around at high speeds, balancing needs to be done somewhat frequently. Next time you come in for an oil change or tune up, ask to have your wheels balanced as well for a smoother driving experience.
