Taylor McNeil: Hey folks I’m Taylor with S&S Tire Richmond Road. Today we’re going to talk about wheel balancing and why it’s necessary.
A perfectly balanced wheel and tire is going to give you a smooth ride and give you even tire wear. When tire’s become unbalanced you will start to develop some symptoms, say, like a vibration, maybe on the highway, above 50 miles an hour. Or, you can also start to get some uneven tire wear that can cause some issues down the road and might force you to buy tires quicker than you mAY necessarily need to.
Typically, we suggest getting your balance checked every 5,000 to 6,000 miles, or with every oil change, if that’s easier, unless symptoms develop sooner. And if they do, bring it to your local mechanic or come see us and would be happy to check the balance for you.
I’m Taylor with S&S Tire Richmond Road. That’s your tip of the day from Under The Hood.
