What is Wheel Balancing?

Wheel balancing ensures that the weight of the wheel and tyre is even around the axle. This allows it to rotate efficiently at high speeds.

Correctly balanced wheels reduce vibration, making your driving experience much more comfortable.


Why is Wheel Balancing Important?

Correct wheel balancing prolongs the lifespan of your tyres. Tyres which are unbalanced will wear quickly and unevenly, due to the inconsistent contact between the road and the tyre. This increases friction wear in some places and can lead to more frequent tyre changes.

Not only that, but the discomfort of driving with unbalanced wheels is very unsafe. It reduces your control over your car and can cause you to lose concentration or have an accident.

If you suspect your wheels are unbalanced, book a wheel balancing appointment at a garage near you as soon as possible.

How Are Wheels Balanced?

Wheels are balanced by placing tiny counter-weights at specific points around the wheel. A technician removes the wheels from your car during a wheel balancing because they get spun around in a special machine. This measures the vibration and indicates how many weights they need to add to balance the tyre.

They repeat this process until the machine reports that the wheel is properly balanced. 


What Are the Signs That a Car Needs Wheel Balancing?

If you notice any of the following warning signs, it is likely that your wheels are unbalanced:

  • Your car’s tyres are wearing out quickly or unevenly.
  • Your car feels like it is wobbling once it passes around 40mph.
  • The steering wheel of your car starts shaking.
  • You feel uncomfortable vibrations through the steering wheel at high speed
  • There is a change in your steering sensitivity


You should book a wheel balancing appointment if you notice any of these issues.


How Long Does Wheel Balancing Take?

Wheel balancing usually takes between 30-60 minutes. It isn't a complicated job so it can take less time, depending on how many wheels you need balanced.


What Causes Wheel Balancing Problems?

Wheel balancing problems are caused by several issues. These include:

  • Replacing tyres without balancing them
  • Altering the ride height of your car without rebalancing the wheels
  • Ageing, worn or damaged suspension parts


How Much Does Wheel Balancing Cost?

On average, wheel balancing costs between £10 and £20 per wheel. This is generally included in the cost of a tyre fitting due to the importance of having balanced wheels.


How Does Wheel Balancing Differ From Wheel Alignment?

Wheel balancing focuses on keeping your car's wheels rotating evenly, while wheel alignment keeps all four wheels pointing in the right direction and tracking correctly. Wheel balancing only deals with your car's tyres, wheel alignment involves suspension modifications as well.

This means that wheel balancing and alignment both play very important roles in keeping your car driving smoothly and safely. It also means that you shouldn't ignore either service, either while fitting new tyres or as part of your regular maintenance plan.
