While they may sound similar, wheel alignment and balancing are two completely different services that help keep your tires performing well. Still, many Jackson drivers confuse these two services or don’t fully understand the difference between them. So what’s the difference between wheel balancing vs. wheel alignment? Find out with the service technicians at Wilson KIA to compare them!
Having wheels out of balance can cause your steering wheel to shake or vibrate. Unbalanced wheels can also develop varying tire wear, causing your steering wheel to shake while driving or premature tire wear. When your tire has uneven weight distribution or if your wheel is slightly bent, wheel balancing may be necessary. Our technicians will use precision machinery to analyze how your tire is balanced, and small weights are added as necessary to balance the weight evenly.
Having your wheels balanced extends the life of your tires, minimizes harsh vibrations, and improves traction and control. In short, you’ll save more money while enjoying a smoother ride on the roads of Madison.
While you’re aligning your wheels, a wheel alignment is actually a suspension service. This service is performed by making adjustments to your vehicle’s suspension components to ensure that the wheels are set to the correct angles on all axis — camber, toe, and caster.
Whether you hit a pothole or curb, got into a minor accident, or have been noticing any issues, your alignment may need to be checked and then adjusted. If you notice your vehicle doing any of the following, be sure to get an alignment:
Prolonged driving of your vehicle while being out of alignment can damage your tires and suspension components prematurely, and can reduce your vehicle’s overall performance.
