Balance Tires


Balance Tires is a machine is used to read tire imbalance or mass within the tire. To equalize the areas of the tire that have less mass, a technician installs a weight in various areas on the rim of the tire.

Balance Tires or wheel balancing is the process to check the wheels and tires assembly for their unbalanced weights. Proper wheel balance is one factor promoting the longevity of a tire's lifespan. Static and dynamic are two types of wheel balancing methods. Dynamic balancing is usually the preferred method, which uses an off-the-vehicle wheel balancer. This method involves spinning the wheel and tire on the wheel balancer to identify the heavy spots, then crimping lead weights to the rim to compensate, rebalancing the wheel.
