Does your car feel out of sorts when you drive on Bicester’s roads? It may be a result of improper wheel balancing. Also known as tyre balancing, wheel balancing is an integral part of general automobile maintenance. Phillips Tyres is your one-stop destination when you are looking for wheel balancing in Bicester.
Wheel or tyre balancing serves a simple purpose: to ensure that the weight of the wheel and tyre assembly is uniformly spread over and around the axle. Driving impetuously and over long distances for prolonged periods often damages the wheels, shifting their weight distribution. It creates unsafe driving conditions, and a delicate balancing session is in order.
At Phillips Tyres, we have a great team of experts who have the latest in technology, including the newest wheel balancing machines. Such an apparatus can detect even extremely minute changes differences in weight around the wheel. Depending on the proportion of imbalance, our technicians add offsetting weights around the wheel at specific points.
Why do wheels need balancing?
Many clients who visit our wheel balancing garage in Bicester often ask us why their cars need such a service. It is mostly a safety issue. Because the wheel rotates around the axle at breakneck speeds, even minor imbalances can create serious vibrations. Once such vibrations spread to all four wheels, the wobble factor shoots up.
That is the main problem. Other issues include:
Uneven and rapid tyre wear. That is because unbalanced tyres create uneven pressure on a tyre’s treads.
If you do not bring your car for wheel balancing in Bicester, they will heat up enormously when plying on the road.
Note that tyre imbalance puts enormous pressure on the suspension.
When do wheels need balancing?
