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.
