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.
Driving in the North West
The North West region includes the major cities of Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool and Carlisle, as well large areas of unspoilt countryside in the UK. A land of superlatives, the Lake District boasts both the highest mountain (Scafell Pike) and the largest lake in England (Lake Windermere); Lakeland Fells in Cumbria is wettest place in England, and Cross Fell in the Pennines the coldest. As such, drivers in the North West need to be prepared for all manner of driving conditions and issues, particularly during the winter months.
