Wheel balance is commonly mistaken for wheel alignment, which relates to the angle of your wheels 
and their relation to the ground. Wheel balance is about the distribution of weight around a revolving
tire and wheel assembly. Uneven wheel balance can have a noticeable effect on both your vehicle and 
your safety. Wheel balancing delivers a smooth ride and assures even tire wear by properly adjusting 
the wheel weight distribution around the vehicle.

Why is wheel balancing essential? 


Wheel balancing is for the most part vital in today’s vehicles, which are being created to be lighter 
weight. The heavier weight of older models essentially helped smooth out the ride by suppressing 
vibrations before they were felt. Modern tire design is another aspect that may lead to balance issues. 
Normally, more responsive tires with lower profiles are being used to respond to the demand for style 
and performance. The smallest imbalance can be felt in most modern vehicles.
