Scottsdale’s Trusted Wheel Balancing & Maintenance Shop
Wheel balancing for your vehicle.
Balanced tires wear evenly. Unlike with your alignment, wheel balancing isn’t related to angled tires. Your tires may not wear evenly over time and 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 services that include wheel balancing to correct this. The expert technicians at Tech Plus Automotive are equipped to quickly identify these spots and counterbalance your tires against them. For years we have been Scottsdale’s number one independent service center, offering dealership quality service at more affordable prices. We handle wheel balancing and other vital maintenance items for popular brands like Acura, BMW, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Mercedes, Porsche and Volvo.
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. Call Tech Plus Automotive today to schedule an appointment with one of our expert mechanics who will help you take better care of your car’s tires & wheels.
