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.
Daihatsu is the oldest of all the Japanese car manufacturers, harking all the way back to 1907 when it began trading as the Hatsudoki Seizo Company ltd. In 1953 they began exporting models, by this time as Daihatsu, although in the last twenty years or so these markets have contracted, and the marque hasn’t sold cars in the UK since 2011. These days Daihatsu is owned by Toyota, despite which there are still plenty of Daihatsus on British roads. The most frequently seen models are the mini SUV Terios, and the Materia minivan.
