Tires and wheels are one of the most important components of your vehicle. Particularly with commercial vehicles, you’re dealing with a significant amount of time on the road – and you’re likely hauling heavy loads.

Caring for your vehicle should be a top priority, and that includes a tire and wheel balancing service.

At S&S Tire and Best-One Tire & Service, we provide a reliable service that you can count on.

The Importance of Tire & Wheel Balancing

Tires are quite an investment, so you must do everything you can to keep them in good working order. If they wear too quickly, it can lead to more frequent replacements – and that will start to add up quickly.

Balancing your tires can offer a wide array of benefits:

  • You will enjoy a smoother ride
  • You’ll get better gas mileage
  • You’ll extend the life of your tires
  • You’ll protect the suspension of your vehicle
  • You’ll have a safer ride

Particularly as you drive at higher speeds, tire and wheel balancing becomes more important. You don’t want to lose control of the vehicle – and if your tires aren’t properly balanced, it can lead to a lot of vibrations. You’ll even feel them in the steering wheel.

The tires can start to wear at uneven rates, making it harder to maintain control of the vehicle. It can take its toll on fuel efficiency as well as overall suspension. Soon, you’ll not only have a safety issue but also expensive repairs that impact other systems on your vehicle.

You’ll know when it’s time to schedule the service based on what’s happening when you’re behind the wheel. If you feel too much vibration or your fuel efficiency has dropped, it’s likely because the tires’ weight distribution is off.

By taking the time to schedule tire and wheel balancing as needed, you can do more to protect your vehicle – and be safer when you’re on the road.

What is Involved

Tire and wheel balancing is a service that should be performed every 5,000 miles or six months, depending on the frequency in which you drive.

Many commercial vehicles get the service performed more regularly – and that’s because of the number of miles being driven every month.

Tire balancing is about ensuring that the tires are balanced. There are small weights on the tires – they’re attached near the edges of the wheel. The weights are there to help distribute the weight evenly.

It’s important to know this: tire balancing and wheel alignment are not the same services.

While both are important, they do very different things. Tire balancing is to ensure that the weight of the tires is evenly distributed while a wheel alignment focuses on suspension to ensure that the tire meets the road at the correct angles.

In some instances, you may even want to schedule both – and we can certainly help you with all of the tire and wheel services you need at S&S Tire.
