Extend the Life of Your Tires
Chances are you’ve invested good money in your tires, if you’re interested in making sure you get the best life out of them you are in the right place. A wheel balance and rotation go hand-in-hand together in efforts to help you keep your tires lasting as long as they can. Making sure your tires wear down evenly is about more than protecting your investment, it is also paramount to the safe operation of your vehicle as uneven tire wear can lead to unpredictable incidents out on the road that can be avoided by taking care of some basic tire and wheel maintenance.
In regular every day driving, your front tires are responsible for absorbing more energy from turns and wear out on their shoulders accordingly. If your vehicle uses a font-wheel-drive drivetrain, count on that force to increase this wear. In order to spread the wear evenly across all tires, we rotate their positions in a way that allows them to wear down in a somewhat uniform manner. Your service manual should have your vehicles recommendation for tire rotation, it is often between every 8,000 – 13,000 km.
Wheel balancing involves identifying uneven or ‘heavy’ spots on a tire than can cause it to wobble as it propagates. You may experience this as vibrations coming through your steering wheel when your front wheels need balancing, or through your seat when the rear wheels are suspect. By adding subtle weight changes to the tire, our Technicians are able to balance out the wheels to ensure they are operating properly and providing you with a smooth and more importantly, safe ride.
