Wheel balancing ensures that there is proper and even weight distribution of your tyres and wheels, and that it is consistent throughout. Correct balancing is vitally important to performance, safety and prolonging the overall lifespan of your vehicle. Get a professional to inspect the wheel and tyre balance of your car at least every 10 000km. Also, take the opportunity to ensure your tyres are evenly inflated every time you fill up your vehicle.
If you experience vibrations in your steering wheel or in your seat while driving at a high speed it is often due to a weight imbalance on your tyres or wheel assembly. Have a professional check the balance on your tyres.
Regularly check balancing and alignment – every nine or ten thousand kilometres, depending on the speed and roads you travel on.
