Wheel Balancing

Seamless Operations, Every Step of the Way

Are you experiencing vibrations while driving? Did you know that unbalanced wheels can lead to uneven tyre wear, a 50% decrease in fuel efficiency, and compromise your vehicle’s safety? 

At Mobile Tyre Surgeon, we understand the significance of a well-balanced ride. Our expert technicians bring precision and efficiency to every wheel balancing service, ensuring a smoother and safer journey for you. 

Trust us to keep your wheels in perfect condition.

Why wheel balancing is necessary?

Tyre balance plays a vital role in a  smooth ride. Imbalanced wheels can lead to vibrations, compromising traction, steering control, and overall tyre wear. Even with a brand-new set of tyres, the balance gradually shifts with wear, affecting performance. 

Mobile Tyre Surgeon understands this critical aspect of vehicle maintenance, offering precision wheel balancing to keep your journey smooth and safe.

Checking Wheel Balance

Wheel balancing ensures an even distribution of weight around the tyre’s circumference, minimizing vibrations and bounces. Over time, tread wear alters weight distribution, leading to imbalances. 

This is where wheel balancing comes into play. Modern wheel balancing machines pinpoint the counterweight placement, smoothing out vibrations and providing a more enjoyable driving experience.

Spotting Imbalances and Vibration Solutions

Unaddressed imbalances can cause vibrations that intensify with speed. Vibrations typically start around 40 to 50 mph and can worsen over time. Mobile Tyre Surgeon recommends regular checks for wheel balance, especially if you experience increased vibration. 

Our expert technicians utilize advanced wheel balancers, capable of detecting even subtle imbalances, ensuring a smoother and safer ride.

Types of Imbalances and Their Impact

Static Imbalance

  • It is due to an Uneven weight distribution preventing consistent tyre rolling, causing up-and-down motion.
  • We can correct it by  Addressing it in one axial plane by placing counterweights.

Couple Imbalance

  • It occurs when The mass axis intersects the running axis, requiring correction in two planes.
  • We can correct it by Balancing in two planes to eliminate wobbling.

Dynamic Imbalance

  • It is due to an Unequal weight on one or both sides causing a side-to-side wobble.
  • We can correct it by Balancing it in two planes to eliminate lateral imbalance.

How do I know if I need wheel balancing?

Here’s how you can recognize if your wheels are out of balance and why addressing it immediately is crucial. 

Vibrations While Driving

If you feel vibrations in your steering wheel or through the seat, especially at certain speeds, it’s a strong indicator of imbalanced wheels. Its important to solve this problem as Vibrations can lead to discomfort, affect vehicle handling, and indicate uneven weight distribution.

Uneven Tyre Wear

Steering Pulls to One Side

If your vehicle tends to pull to one side even when you’re driving straight, it could be a sign of uneven tyre balance. It’s crucial to address this issue as Steering pull affects handling, leading to an imbalanced driving experience and potentially compromising safety.

Increased Fuel Consumption

What does wheel balancing do?

Wheel balancing optimizes tyre and wheel performance by ensuring even weight distribution. At Mobile Tyre Surgeon, our precise balancing techniques enhance vehicle stability, reduce vibrations, and extend tyre life. 

What’s the difference between alignment and balancing?

Wheel alignment and balancing serve distinct purposes. Alignment corrects the angles of wheels, ensuring they point straight and parallel for optimal vehicle control. Balancing, on the other hand, distributes weight evenly across tyres, minimizing vibrations and enhancing performance. At Mobile Tyre Surgeon, rely on our expertise for precision alignment and balancing tailored to your vehicle’s needs.

Do I need to balance all 4 tyres?

Balancing all four tyres is recommended for uniform wear and optimal performance. Imbalances in any tyre can lead to vibrations, uneven wear, and compromised vehicle control. At Mobile Tyre Surgeon, our comprehensive service ensures each tyre is accurately balanced, promoting a smoother ride and extending the lifespan of your tyres.
