WHAT'S NEW
Tire and Wheel Balancing
11/2/2015

TIRE AND WHEEL BALANCING

 

An unbalanced wheel causes vibration when it is spinning due to a heavy spot on the wheel.  Vibration can also be caused by a variation in force because of uneven stiffness in your tire sidewall or tread, or because the wheel is out of round when rolling.  Imbalance and force variation can affect one another. While imbalance is measured by spinning the tire, force variation can only be measured under load.

 

For this reason, Sawchuk’s Garage has invested in a state-of-the-art Hunter Road Force Technology system which allows our technicians to perform a computer simulated road test on your wheels and tires. 

 

Excessive wheel vibration can result in:

  • excessive tire wear
  • damage to suspension and steering parts
  • unsafe steering and handling
  • unsafe driving conditions

 

With Road Force Technology we will dynamically balance your tires so that we eliminate both side-to-side and up-and-down imbalance.  Then, by aligning any high point or stiff spot in the tire with the lowest spot on your rim, we can make your wheel round when rolling.  This procedure solves most vibration problems.
