Tire Balancing Service

Balancing Your Tires

Tire balancing is the name of the game and it is pretty different from wheel alignment. Luckily, the team at Surprise Honda provides expert services for both! For the purposes of this, tire balancing is when our team essentially ensures that the weight around your tires is evenly distributed for a smooth ride every time you get in your car to drive. Wheel alignment is when your wheels are as the name suggests – unaligned and you can feel your vehicle pull to one side or another.

Why do Tires need to be Balanced?

Your tires are not a cheap replacement like say, your windshield wipers or filters. Tires can typically cost upward of $400. Because of this, it is no surprise we work hard to get our customers every safe mile out of their tires as possible. Tire balancing, in essence, is a tune-up. When they are out of whack, your ride will not only be bumpy on smooth roads, but it will cause our tire health to diminish drastically. Signs they need to be balanced:

  • Uneven and faster tire tread wear
  • Fuel economy becomes noticeably poor
  • Floorboards and seats begin to vibrate when reaching higher speeds
  • Most of your vehicle weight is targeted on one side more than the other

How Tires Become Unbalanced

There is not something you can entirely do to avoid this. Your car will always have more weight consistently on one side than the other. Nothing is perfect, which means your car manufacturing has a chance at having minor flaws that makes some tires have heavier spots than others, too. How we balance them: We place your tire on a mount that then spins the wheel for us to get accurate measurements to let our tech know if the weight is equally distributed or not. If our team is able to find an imbalance:

  • Our team adjusts the weights
  • Otherwise, we will move the entire tire on the wheel to rebalance it

When to Get Your Tires Balanced

We recommend getting your tires checked for balance every 5,000 miles or whenever you get new tires – whether that be a new set or just one replaced. Sometimes, you may even notice that a weight has fallen off. If any of these occur, you should bring in your car as soon as possible. By doing so, you are helping to ensure the health of your tires.
