The ice and snow are starting to melt away, so that means area roads should begin cracking under the summer heat in a few weeks. No matter what season you are driving in, you need to protect the wheels and tires on your vehicle that keep you moving along in Waldorf, MD. As a key part of a regular, preventive maintenance program, professional wheel balancing helps extend the life of your car or truck.

Each Wiygul Automotive wheel balance service provides multiple benefits for area vehicles. They include increased tread life and even wear for each tire, better fuel efficiency, and a gentler ride for everyone in the car or truck. There are two key signs to watch for which can tell you it’s time to bring in your auto for wheel balance.

Rough handling at high speeds. It is normally the first sign drivers detect and indicates that there is not only a wheel out-of-balance, but the tire tread is probably wearing unevenly as well.

Increased vibration at any speed. This sign appears as a shaking steering wheel and is the second sign for most drivers, but can be the first sign for vehicles that drive only at slower speeds. It can also indicate that there is a problem with the suspension system or steering mechanism.

Wheel balancing is equalizing the wheel and tire weight to ensure smooth rotation at high speeds. Every set of wheels and tires on Waldorf, MD vehicles have minor imperfections present at the time of manufacture, so a balancing service is important for new and used tires.

Examples of them would be the joint where the tire cap piles (layers of polyester fabric) join together or the hole drilled into one side of the wheel for the valve stem. While these imperfections have almost no effect at lower speeds, they become apparent very quickly driving on the highway.

Our technicians use a balancing machine to counteract the effects. They center the wheel and then attach small weights along the rim to eliminate damaging vibrations and uneven tread wear. Since tires grip the road differently with any tread wear, we recommend wheel balancing every 6,000 to 8,000 miles at our Waldorf, MD Clinic.

Balancing does not resolve problems like worn tires, bent wheel rims, or other physical issues. If our technicians discover one, we recommend allowing our technicians to perform a free inspection at our Clinics to determine the extent and what needs to be done for repair or replacement.

Each wheel balance service comes with a 2 year/24-month warranty and is only $20 per wheel, regardless of what model car or truck rolls into our facilities. To schedule this or any other service at the Wiygul Clinic closest to you, call us at 866-702-8050 today.
