Tire Balance - The Basics

If your tires are unbalanced, it affects more than just your wheels. Your steering wheel or even your entire vehicle may shake or wobble while driving, which can distract and annoy.


Why does this happen?

Hitting potholes and other bumps in the road promotes wear and tear that over time will cause tires to become unblanced. The more unbalanced your tires become, the worse rough terrain will affect them, meaning greater, more expensive damages.  

How do I fix this?

A certified auto mechanic like the ones at the J. Bertolet Service Center can solve your problem! Special equipment is needed to determine the correct weights are added to your tires to balance them. We'll be sure to use your manufactuer's exact specifications to restore a smooth ride.

When should I schedule?

Do you feel vibration in your wheels, steering wheel, or throughout the entire vehicle? Unlbalanced tires aren't always the root of this issue, but they are a common cause. Whatever your problem, our technicians will diagnose the issue and provide you with a solution that will have you back on the road as soon as possible.
