The Benefits of Tire Balancing

Minimizing Vibration and Maximizing Tire Durability & Overall Drive Safety

Over time, through day-to-day tire treadwear, your wheels and tires will experience changes in the distribution of their weight. While normal, if gone unaddressed, it could cause uneven tire wear as well as vibration in the steering wheel, seat, and floorboard.

Tire balancing can ensure a smoother, more comfortable ride, reduce tire and treadwear and help preserve your vehicle’s suspension. Most tire manufacturers recommend tires be balanced every 3,000 – 6,000 miles.

MasterClass Automotive provides tire balancing services using the latest digital-enhanced equipment. Beyond traditional balancing, we use Road Force® technology that measures radial and lateral tire forces and helps solve ride and handling problems such as tire pull and wheel vibration that traditional balance and wheel alignment machines cannot fix.

Hunter Road ForceOur Road Force® equipment applies over 1,200 pounds of pressure to simulate the weight of the vehicle on the tire as it rolls down the road. Using multiple electronic sensors, it measures variations of tire stiffness, radial runout of the wheels, and improper bead seat of tire to rim. This allows our technicians to match the tire and wheel position with the utmost accuracy and precision, while eliminating the need for excessive wheel weights.

    I never knew that Most tire manufacturers recommend tires be balanced every 3,000 – 6,000 miles. While driving to my 11-year-old’s summer band camp my wheel started to pull to the right. I am no expert, but I would imagine that it is time to get my tires balanced!

    My wife’s car has been having some troubles lately. Every time I drive it, it seems to vibrate when I get to 40 mph. I didn’t realize that having your tires balanced can help ensure a smoother ride as well as improving the life of the tire. Knowing now that manufacturers recommend getting tires balanced every 3,000-6,000 miles will definitely make me hurry in for a service.

    IN your article, you stated that over time, through day-to-day tire treadwear, your wheels and tires will experience changes in the distribution of their weight. My family and I are going on our annual East Coast road trip and I noticed that one of our tires went flat. I wonder there are certain types of tires that might need more repairs that normal.

    I like how you said that as times goes on tires will wear down and cause vibration to occur when you’re driving. Talking to a representative at a local tire store could be a good way to know when your tires are beyond hope and you should replace them. My husband’s truck is shaking really bad when it is being driven so it would probably be a good idea for us to get them looked at.

    I like how you said that tire balancing will ensure a smoother ride. We have a hatchback that we bought back in 2005 that shakes like none other when we’re going on the highway. It hasn’t been too much of a concern up until now because we would like to give it to our son before he goes off to college. We’ll have to look into getting the tires balanced or maybe just buying some new ones before he leaves.
