When you purchase new tires, each tire is placed on a balancing machine, and weights are put on the rim to balance the tire while it is in a controlled spin. Tire balancing is a process that is specific to help them to operate properly on your vehicle while you drive. You should have your tires balanced every time you have a tire repair or have your tires rotated. Balancing your tires promotes safety in driving, reduces tire wear, and increases your fuel efficiency.
Your tires should be balanced based on your manufacturer’s recommendations. However, if you notice a vibration when driving that gets progressively worse as your speed increases, you should schedule an appointment to have them rebalanced. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual for more information on tire balancing.
