A tire's balance describes the distribution of mass within an automobile tire or the entire wheel to which it is attached.
A wheel is out of balance when one area is heavier or lighter than another area. This can cause vibration, steering problems, and excessive wear on your tires. If you experience any of these symptoms, we recommend that you let us check it out as soon as possible. Driving on unbalanced wheels can result in costly tire and wheel replacements and will negatively affect the safety of your vehicle.
At RS Auto Clinic, we use state-of-the-art tire balancing machines to precisely measure the locations of the heavy spots of your wheels. Weights are then attached to the exterior or interior of the wheel to counteract centrifugal forces acting on the heavy areas when the wheel is turning. This will eliminate vertical bouncing (static balance) and side-to-side wobble (dynamic balance). The result will be a smoother ride and will increase the longevity of your wheels and tires.
You should have your wheels balanced whenever a tire is replaced, and whenever you purchase new tires. Of course, at the first sign of vibration or irregular tread wear, your car should be thoroughly checked for wheel balance and alignment, and for worn or broken mechanical parts.

Did you know?
Did you know that tires can be recycled into a multitude of other products? Including: asphalt, roof shingles, ground mulch, slip-resistant playground flooring, car mats, and even shoes and furniture? We take pride in our environment. We participate in a tire recycling program that diverts used tires from the landfill.
Over the past five years, over 60 million tires have been recycled in Ontario alone.
