WHEEL BALANCING AT CAR SCAN CENTRE
Using our USA imported computer-wheel balancer is very competent to control the competent to control the wobbling of the wheels which is now a regular problem in every vehicle due to rough roads. It helps secure suspension and body rattling.
Static and dynamic are the type of detailed wheel imbalances which is taken into consideration by our technicians
Static balance addresses the vertical movement which can cause vibration.
A dynamic imbalance, addresses balance in two planes – vertical movement and lateral movement.
Both types of imbalance require the use of a special balancing machine to help even and balance the parts.
Our expert mounts them on correct rims and adjusts the pressure to optimal inflation. Then each tyre goes on the center bore of a balancing machine. The machine spins the tyre at a high speed to measure the wheel/tyre combination imbalance. It signals how much weight our technician should add to balance out the tyre and the areas where said weight is needed.
WHAT IS WHEEL BALANCING ?
Apart from tyre alignment, wheel balancing refers to rectification of any weight imbalance in wheel combination and this process is preferably performed adjacent to wheel alignment.
WHY, WHEEL BALANCING ?
Unbalanced tyre stresses your shocks, bearings, and entire wheel assembly. Driving a vehicle with tyre that is unbalanced, is unsafe and can cause serious accidents. … Older vehicles may develop tyre imbalance due to excessive miles and lack of maintenance.
wheel BALANCING vs wheel alignment
WHEEL BALANCING VS. WHEEL ALIGNMENT
Wheel alignment involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so they are perfectly parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground, while wheel balancing identifies where wheel weights should be applied to counter-balance heavy spots
Tyre balancing is essential for proper tyre care for the same reason as wheel alignment: prevention of premature tread wear. Having tyres aligned and balanced every 5,000 to 6,000 miles can help maximize their lifespan and overall performance
