Wheel Balancing Fayetteville, AR
It is important not confuse wheel balancing with wheel alignment as they address two different issues. Balancing has to do with the individual weight of each wheel and tire which can be altered by adding weights to the exterior of the rims which resemble small metal clips. Properly balancing your tires can also help prevent misalignment issues.
Unbalanced tires means that your vehicle is not performing at it’s optimum efficiency which can mean that you’re getting less miles per gallon and causing longer term damage to your vehicle. When your tires are misaligned or unbalanced they can compound issues with your braking system or cause your engine to work harder than it has to in certain situations.
