Wheel Balancing vs. Wheel Alignment
As your vehicle continues to rack up those kilometres, its wheels bear the brunt of the heavy lifting. That means, over time, there can be a lot of wear and tear on treads, resulting in shifts in weight distribution. This can create unwanted vibrations when in motion, making for a less-smooth ride. Having a wheel balancing done every 5,000 to 10,000 kilometres also decreases the potential for forms of damage, which would result from vibrations putting strain on various parts and components over time.
Wheel alignment is a different process entirely, focusing on rotational performance and how each wheel’s behaviour affects the rest on your frame. We carefully inspect and test to ensure all four are rotating in full synchronization, reducing the risk of slips and losses of control while maintaining equal forward momentum. That also means no more squealing tires, uneven tire wear or crooked steering.
Your Rodgers wheel balancing and alignment experience is designed to ensure we cover all of the angles. Literally. That way, you don’t have to. This service includes the following:
- Tire and wheel removal
- Mounting wheels on high-grade equipment
- Spinning and weight tests to identify, locate and address any balance or rotational issues
- Lead weight attachment for weight compensation purposes
- Remounting and final inspection
