Wheel balancing basics

Rubber is the primary ingredient of a tyre. Sometimes, silicon or other additives are also incorporated into it for enhancing specific attributes, but a tyre is fundamentally a piece of rubber. Rubber, as we all know, is somewhat malleable. In a tyre, this malleability results in the concentration of weight at certain spots which is detrimental to the balance of a tyre.

When the balance is disrupted, your tyres cannot perform at their optimum. Many issues start cropping up, some of which are discussed below.

Signs of wheel imbalance

Detecting wheel imbalance is not the easiest of tasks. Its symptoms are quite generic and can quite easily be confused with problems in other parts of a car. As such, we advise our clients to get their car’s wheel balance checked every time they rotate their tyres or install a new pair.

Nevertheless, if you are attentive enough, you may be able to detect wheel imbalance and take appropriate measures for correcting it. Look out for the following signs.

  • Constant vibrations which increase with speed
  • Noticeable drop in the fuel economy
  • Patchy tread wear
  • Bulges at various spots on the tyre’s body

Drivers are often confounded with the fluctuations or the sudden drop in fuel performance without any apparent reason. 9 times out of 10, it has got something to do with their wheel balance.
