If you are driving on ice and snow or roads cracking under summer temperatures, it is your wheel and tires that keep you moving around Clinton, MD. Keeping them in proper balance prevents unneeded costs, so wheel balancing is a key part of a regular, preventive maintenance plan.

A professional wheel balancing service from Wiygul Automotive provides the following for every wheel and tire: Even tread wear, a smoother ride for passengers and driver, increase the life of each tire and increase fuel efficiency. If you experienced any of these signs, it might be time to bring in your automobile.

Rough handling at highway speeds is a warning that not only is at least one wheel out-of-balance, but your tread has also already started wearing unevenly. Increased vibration, which first shows up as a shaking steering wheel, is the next indicator to a driver that there may be a problem with the wheels and tires. It may also be an indication of a problem with your steering or suspension systems.

We define wheel balancing at our Wiygul Clinic in Clinton, MD as equalizing the combined weight of a wheel and tire, so they turn smoothly on the axel at high speed. That is important because every wheel and tire has minor imperfections at the time of manufacture.

Without balancing, these imperfections have little effect at the lower speeds typically used for daily driving. At higher speeds on area highways, these imperfections quickly become apparent. Examples include the valve stem hole drilled into one side of the wheel and point where extra layers of polyester fabric (the cap piles) join together on the tire.

To perform a balance correctly, our technicians placed the wheel and mounted the tire on a balancing machine. The device centers the wheel and provides the information needed to attach small counterweights along the rim. The excess vibrations immediately stop, and tire wear continues evenly. That is important since tires grip the road differently as the tread wears down.

It is why we recommend wheel balancing every 6,000 to 8,000 miles for your Clinton, MD car or truck. Balancing does not fix every issue related to wheels and tires though. It cannot compensate for a bent rim, severely worn tire, or other physical problem with your vehicle. For those, we recommend you have one of our technicians to perform a free inspection to determine the problem and what we can do to fix it.

Our balance service is only $20 per wheel at Wiygul Automotive. Service technicians have access to an inventory with every major brand of tire and work on every foreign and domestic automobile model. All of our wheel and other automotive services come with a 2 year/24-month warranty. To schedule an appointment at a Wiygul Clinic near you, call us at 866-702-8050 today.
