Wheel Balance

VEHICLE ALIGNMENT IN BROOK PARK, OH

Does your car pull or drift away from a straight line when you let go of the wheel? Do your tires wear rapidly? If so, you may need a wheel alignment. At Auto Repair Technology Inc, we offer affordable wheel alignments for a wide range of cars and trucks.

A WISE INVESTMENT

A wheel alignment offers many far-reaching benefits for your car, including:

  • Improved handling
  • Better gas mileage
  • Protection for your tires

But the most important benefit is the one to your safety, as a wheel alignment can make your car significantly safer to drive. At Auto Repair Technology Inc, we make wheel alignments a snap. We can align your car quickly and efficiently so that you can get back on the road as quickly as possible. And we keep our rates reasonable without skimping on quality or service. Call us today for more information or to schedule an appointment for your vehicle.

Tire Balance

Every time a wheel is first mounted onto the rim with a new tire, it has to be balanced. The goal is to make sure the weight is even around the wheel.

Wheel balance is checked on a wheel balancing machine that can sense as little as 1/4 ounce difference in weight around the wheel. Why worry about 1/4 ounce on a wheel that weighs many pounds? That tiny amount of weight is traveling very fast around the axle: hundreds of times a minute. It creates enough momentum to cause serious vibration. And when you multiply by 4 wheels, the wobble really adds up. Unbalanced tires put uneven pressure on the treads. Tires get too hot and wear unevenly. Tire imbalance can also strain the wheel bearings and suspension system.

Not "once and done"

The minute you pull away from the service station with your newly balanced tires, they begin getting out of balance again. Every bump and corner affects balance; so does tire wear. Over time, your tires get out of balance again. That's why it's important to have tires balanced regularly.
 

 

 

Often confused with wheel alignment, a properly balanced wheel is a beautiful, perfectly tuned wheel-tire combination. This is accomplished by placing measured lead weights on the opposite side of the "heavy spot"—the noticeable tread wear on your unbalanced tire.
