Wheel balancing Bilston is a widely prevalent issue, plaguing a vast majority of vehicles here. Many a time, motorists are unaware of it as its symptoms are not easily noticeable. As such, we advise our patrons to get their wheel balance checked occasionally.

What is wheel balance?

The balance of a wheel has to do with the equitable distribution of mass throughout its body. Tyres are made from an amalgamation of different compounds; rubber is the primary component used in the production of a tyre, but there are several other compounds added to it for enhancing specific properties. For example, silica is added to reduce the rolling resistance of tyres.

An ideal tyre has its mass distributed evenly throughout its carcass. However, this perfect weight distribution and balance of a tyre may get skewed for a variety of reasons. The daily impact of the road is primarily responsible for wheel imbalance. It means that the mass gets concentrated at specific spots, creating heavy spots (where the mass is concentrated) and light spots (where it is not).

At First Stop Auto Centre, we have the necessary equipment to measure the imbalance accurately to the last gram. Whenever you suspect the issue, bring your car to our wheel balancing garage Wolverhampton for a check-up.

How to detect wheel imbalance?

Wheel imbalance may not be the most severe issue that your car can face, but it definitely affects several performance parameters of a vehicle and also reduces the longevity of your car tyres.

There are few signs of wheel imbalance that you may keep an eye out for.

  • Bulges on the body of the tyre
  • Vibrations through the floorboard, which increase in intensity as you accelerate
  • A sharp decline in the fuel economy of your car
  • Scuffed tread wear pattern
