Wheel balancing for your BMW.
Balanced tires wear evenly. Unlike your alignment balancing isn’t related to angled tires. Your tires may not wear evenly over time. This can cause some areas to wear faster than others. In turn, heavy spots are created on the tire. These spots throw the balance of the tire off. They can cause all of your tires to wear unevenly if they aren’t addressed. We recommend a BMW service that includes wheel balancing to correct this. Our technicians are equipped to quickly identify these spots and counterbalance your tires against them.
How do I know if I need my tires balanced?
The biggest sign is vehicle vibration. This typically occurs at higher speeds on the freeway or highway. If you’re driving between 50 and 70 miles per hour and experience greater than normal vibrations, it’s likely an unbalanced tire. The sooner you have this corrected the safer you’ll be. Vibrations can affect how your vehicle handles. You just may not realize how until you’re in an emergency response situation.
A wheel balancing is affordable and effective. It helps maintain your other tires as well, improving the tire life across your vehicle. You may also notice strange, uneven wear patterns on your tires. If you notice any of these symptoms don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment. The sooner you do, the better for your car.
