Vibration when underway could be caused by an imbalanced tire and wheel assembly or something else — a bent wheel, a damaged tire (which won’t be fixed by balancing), worn suspension parts or other aging components. If you feel a vibration, don’t wait to get it diagnosed. You’ll head off other problems — and enjoy a smoother ride — when your tires are well balanced. In addition to balancing, it’s important to keep your tires properly maintained through regular auto repair tire services such as rotations, alignments, and checking for wear and tear.
If you are experiencing any of these issues or have any concerns, give us a call or come by and we’ll give you a prompt diagnosis of your tire balance.
