Wheel Balance & Tire Rotation


Out-of-balance tires will cause a car to vibrate at certain speeds, usually between 80 and 110 km/hour. A tire is out of balance when one section of the tire is heavier than the others. One ounce of imbalance on a front tire is enough to cause a noticeable vibration in the steering wheel at about 60 mph.

To balance a wheel, the technician will mount it on a balancing machine which spins the wheel to locate the heavier part. He will then compensate for the heavy part by attaching a lead weight on the opposite side. Many people are pleasantly surprised at how smooth their car drives after balancing all four wheels.

 

 



Tire Rotation


Rotating your tires is the practice of moving wheels and tires from one position on the car, to another, to ensure even tire wear. Tire wear is uneven for any number of reasons from mechanical deficiencies to road and driving patterns, under inflation and vehicle weight. Even tire wear is necessary to maintain consistent performance.

Manufacturers generally recommend tire rotation frequency and pattern in your vehicles manual. The rotation pattern is typically moving the back wheels to the front, and the front to the back, but crossing them when moving to the back. Atwill Service Centre is ready to handle your tire rotation. We can perform this during a regular maintenance visit, or if you feel that your vehicle isn't handling like it used to, drop by and let us have a look to determine if a tire rotation is in order.
