Tyre Balancing and Wheel alignment

The Benefits of Tire Balancing

 Wheel alignment consists of adjusting the wheel angles so they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. If your entire vehicle is shaking, that's another sign of an unbalanced tire. If your steering wheel is shaking, your front tires may be unbalanced. Unbalanced rear tires can cause your seat to shake.


Benefits of Wheel Alignment

1. Improved fuel efficiency
Believe it or not, your wheel alignment has a huge impact on your vehicle's fuel efficiency. Properly aligned wheels help distribute power and torque evenly while driving, which wastes less energy (and fuel).

2. Extended Tire Life
A simple way to determine if you have an alignment problem is to look at your tires. If they wear unevenly, or if the edges are thinner than the centre, the wheels are most likely misaligned. Proper wheel alignment, along with regular tire changes, ensures more even wear and extends the life of your tires.

3. Less damage to other components
In addition to the tires, many other vehicle components are affected by crooked wheels. We are talking about elements of brakes, suspension, differentials, transmission and drive train. When things aren't aligned properly, each system has to work harder and that means more damage as well as more chances for expensive car repairs.

4. Better Handling
Vehicles with properly aligned wheels simply drive better, whether driving straight down a freeway or down the winding, hilly streets of San Francisco. As a driver, you will quickly feel the difference.

5. Increased Safety
In addition to better handling, you have better overall safety when your wheels are fully aligned. And lastly, we verified that a safer car is a good thing.

A Look at An Added Method

A Look at The Wheel Weights

Just as there are different methods of balancing an assembly, there are also a variety of balancing weights. There are standard clamp weights in different versions, which are manufactured to suit the contours of different wheel flanges.
There are MC weights used on various American vehicles, EN weights used on VW and Honda vehicles, FN weights for Japanese vehicles, and IAW weights used on many South Korean and European vehicles.
In addition, there are three main materials used to make wheel weights. Lead weights, the original weights used to balance assemblies, are disappearing from the scene.
