What is tire balancing?

Maintaining an equal tire balance on your car is extremely important to receive the best services from your tires. While balancing your tires provides a smooth ride, it is also a key component in tire wear. Tire balancing is needed when there are heavy spots on a tire. These heavy spots then cause your tire and wheel to wobble a bit. The act of balancing counter acts these heavy spots by adding weights to the wheel in order to balance it out.

While the differences in weight are very small, they still have the ability to cause annoying vibrations. Most of the time, if your front wheels out of balance, then you will feel it in the stirring wheel, while if the back wheel is out of balance, you will feel in through the seat.
