Tire Balancing Service
Reasons to Have Tire Balancing Service
Tire balancing is normally done when you get new tires and involves putting small weights on the wheels to get them absolutely balanced. This requires tools and technology that you can find at Volkswagen of Inver Grove in Inver Grove Heights, MN.
Today tires can last a long time, but you may need to get your wheels balanced at 10,000 miles or less. If you notice vibration at highway speeds, or if the car is pulling to one side, that could be an indication that there is a problem. It is a good idea to check your tires now and then, and if you notice one side wearing faster than the other, or uneven wear of any kind, that is yet another indication you may need the tires balanced. Our professional service department services all brands of cars in Inver Grove Heights, MN, as well as Minneapolis, St. Paul & Burnsville, MN.
There are several reasons to keep up with the balancing of your tires. The simplest reason is that it will prolong the life of your tires. Out of balance tires will wear out much faster than they should, and you will save money by getting them balanced. Rotors give the brake pads a surface to use to stop your car, and the rotors essentially hold your tires on your car. Rotors that are not absolutely smooth can cause steering problems as well as braking problems. There is a minimum thickness car makers require for a car to be considered safe on the road.
Byproducts of Non-balanced Tires
Not keeping up the balancing of your wheels means your tires will wear out faster than they should, and that will cost you extra money over the long run. Excessive tire wear can also affect your brakes as well as your steering, and in some cases could make the control of your vehicle more difficult. A check for balancing could be done when you change your oil or as a part of regular maintenance. It is a small but important part of the maintenance of your car.
