Tire Balancing in Plain City, OH

Having your tires balanced not only helps your tires wear more evenly, but it also extends their life and provides for a smoother ride for you and your passengers. Unbalanced tires can really affect your ride, causing shaking tires, drifting, and a generally unsafe ride for you and your passengers. When you need these services, ER Auto Care in Plain City, OH are your hometown tire balancing experts.

Plain City, OH Tire Balancing

Generally speaking, people have their tires balanced when they replace two or even all four tires on their car. Without this service, uneven tire wear will become clear in between 1,000 and 2,000 miles. Vigilant drivers will have their tires checked for balance every 4,000 to 6,000 miles. The team at ER Auto Care can help you determine whether your tires need to be balanced, rotated, or both. As a side note, we generally recommend against replacing a single tire. Even with proper balancing and rotation, a single new tire can be a nightmare for your alignment and suspension.

Do My Tires Need Balancing?

There are a few ways to determine whether your tires need balancing. The easiest is simply looking at your tires to make sure the tread is wearing evenly across the surface of the tire. If the inside or outside edge of the tires seems more worn than its counterpart, you probably need your tires balanced. Shaking while driving, difficulty steering, and the car pulling to one side or the other are also the signs you are in need of wheel balancing.

Once your tires are balanced, you’ll most likely notice it in the driveability of your car immediately. You’ll also notice you are getting better miles per gallon, even wear on your tires and, though not as noticeable at first, the extended life of your set of tires and the longer life of the systems that work with them.
