When your vehicle first comes off the production line all four wheels should be perfectly balanced. However over time they can lose their balance causing the distribution of the weight to be uneven.
Balancing your wheels allows for the weight distribution to be reset, this ensures that the tyre rotates evenly.
You should consider getting your wheels balanced if:
- Steering wheel vibrates at certain speeds (this is usually at high speed)
- You notice accelerated wear and tear to your tyres
Damage can also be caused to steering components and suspensiion which could land you with a hefty bill later down the line.
