Wheels and tyres, as with any rotating object, need to be balanced in order to reduce vibration. A good example of this is when laundry is loaded into a washing machine unevenly, the drum is not correctly balanced, so vibrates. Similarly, wheel balancing ensures that the weight of the wheel and tyre is even around the axle.
You should always have your wheels balanced whenever you have new tyres fitted. Car tyres which are fitted on wheels that have not been properly balanced will wear very quickly and unevenly. This is due to the inconsistent points of friction between the tyre and the road, creating an effect like rubbing sandpaper on the tyre aggressively. Losing grip this way could be very dangerous and the vibration also makes the car’s ride very uncomfortable, possibly to a point of distraction that might lead to an accident.
Wheels are typically removed from a car before their balance is checked. They are placed in a specially-designed machine and spun to measure the vibration. Small offsetting weights are placed at points on the rim of the wheel based on results from the balancing machine. This is repeated until the machine reports that the wheel is balanced.
It’s safe to say a lot has changed since November 1911 in Detroit, when road racer Louis Chevrolet and General Motors founder Billy Durant created Chevrolet. In the century since then, the brand has come to embody the best of American automobile ingenuity, in good times and bad.
One of the biggest brands in the world, Chevrolet cars are sold in most every country today, and have been around since the very early days of Ford’s Model-T (which the company began selling in 1929). Based in the home of automobiles, Detroit, Michigan, the company has had their ups and downs, but are most famous for their brand of American muscle cars. Right now drivers are also loving their five year, 100,000 mile warranty offers.
Experts have said that the best car in their range is the Orlando, a seven-seat MPV that offers outstanding value for money, but gives a sadly lack-lustre driving experience. With the launch of the Volt in the UK, Chevy now has a vehicle that can make a difference in its line up, even if it’s only a niche car at the moment.
