Tire Balance Service

Does your vehicle have trouble keeping straight even when you aren't turning the steering wheel? Do you feel a shaking or vibration as you drive? Find your balance with help from the tire experts at Outten Kia!  

Most drivers know that their tires will need to be replaced every few years, but there are several other important maintenance services to consider when it comes to this important part of your vehicle. Just as rough roads can wear down tire tread or knock your wheels out of alignment, repeated use may also cause your tires to become unbalanced, meaning the weight of the tires is unevenly distributed. This can lead to more serious issues if left unchecked.

 

Types of Inbalance

There are two main types of tire balance issues. Often both types affect the same tire, which makes for a very bumpy ride.

Static Imbalance - This occurs when a single spot of lightness or heaviness forces the tire to roll unevenly, sending up-down vibrations through your vehicle.

Dynamic Inbalance - This occurs when there is an unequal distribution of weight throughout the center of your tire, creating a side-to-side vibration when in motion.
