Frequently Asked Questions - Wheel Balancers
What is the best wheel balancer?
The wheel balancer best for you and your shop will depend on what type of vehicles you will be servicing. If you service cars, sedans, light trucks, and SUVs only, then you more than likely do not need the largest unit available. If you service commercial tricks regularly, then you'll need one that can work around the clock and on some of the largest commercial truck tires on the market today.
Wheel balancers that have consistently been reliable, well built, high-quality, and extremely precise while being used by mechanics and technicians are Atlas, Atlas Platinum, Ranger, Corghi, K&L, iDeal, Talyn, Hofmann, AMMCO, Coats, Nationwide, and CEMB USA.
What is wheel balance?
A wheel balance, or wheel balancing, is the process of equalizing the weight of the combined tire and the wheel assembly so that it spins smoothly at a high speed.
Wheels and tires are never the same weight all around. The wheel's valve stem hole will usually subtract a small amount of weight from one side of the wheel. Tires also have slight imbalances, whether from joining points or slight deviations. This usually translates into the vibration that can be felt and heard within a vehicle as well as leading to irregular damage and wear on tires.
How does a wheel balancer work?
The wheel that needs balancing goes onto a balancer's spindle through a center bore, and a metal cone is inserted to ensure the wheel is perfectly centered. The machine then spins at a very high speed to determine the heaviest point on the tire and will then inform the operator where and how many weights to place on the opposite side of the tire to compensate.
What is the difference between wheel alignment and wheel balancing?
Both wheel alignment and balancing are crucial for smooth rides and extending the life of tires, but wheel alignment and wheel balancing are very different.
Alignment involves the adjustment of the angles of the wheels themselves so they are perfectly parallel to one another and perpendicular to the ground while balancing identifies where wheel weights should be applied to counterbalance heavy spots.
Does wheel balancing affect alignment?
Having your wheels balanced by an experienced, licensed mechanic should not affect your wheel alignment.
The symptoms of misaligned tires and unbalanced tires are similar however, so it is difficult for most drivers to tell what the problem might be.
