The Importance of Tyre Balancing
When you notice this happening, you should contact a mechanic to fix the problem straight away as it can be very dangerous to drive with imbalanced tyres.You will be able to tell that your
tyres are not balanced when certain tyres are wearing at a faster rate than
This means that your tyres are imbalanced and you will need to correct
this as soon as possible. It is importance that all of your tyres are balanced
as when they are not, you will start to feel vibrations when travelling at
certain speeds and this is very dangerous for the driver and its passengers.
These vibrations also result in stress being created in the lower ball joints,
axles and other essential parts of the vehicle. This increased stress on these
parts will lead to them wearing at a faster rate and will mean you will have to
replace these parts a lot sooner than you would have had
to with balanced tyres.
Unbalanced tyres will also result in
an increase in the tyre wear. This is because to compensate for the added
stress on the tyres that the imbalance has created, the tyres start to wear from the edges, whereas with
balanced tyres, they will wear from the middle. When this occurs, it will mean
that you will have to change your tyres as they will no longer provide you with
the necessary grip to drive safely.
