Wheel Balancing

Often confused with wheel alignment, a properly balanced wheel is a beautiful, perfectly tuned wheel-tire combination. This is accomplished by placing measured lead weights on the opposite side of the "heavy spot"—the noticeable tread wear on your unbalanced tire.

How do I know if I need my wheels balanced?

Is your vehicle vibrating at certain speeds, say, between 50 and 70 mph? If so, chances are your wheel is out of balance. One section of your tire is heavier than the other because it's endured more exposure to the friction and heat of the road. Most people are very satisfied with the difference such a simple and inexpensive procedure makes.

Look for these signs, and if you find either one, come see us:
  • Scalloped, erratic wear pattern on tires.
  • Vibration in steering wheel, seat, or floorboard at certain speeds.

Testimonials

Took my Corvette in to have my tires balanced on their new Road Force machine today and the results were excellent. Easily the smoothest vibration free ride I've ever had. Balancing those large wide tires can be a trick but Dave did a great job like he always does. Many thanks guys for another job well done. My mom was surprised at how smooth the ride is now.

This machine is flat-out awesome! I had minor vibrations that could not be identified until I had Dave at Sedam Tire mount my tires on their new high-tech Hunter Road Force Balance machine. Each wheel/tire was carefully mounted with a damage-free flange – NO Wheel Damage Possible! The machine emulates radial and lateral road force – weight, pressure and speed when your tires hit the road. It senses all defects in the tire, providing exact read-outs of where your wheel/tire is out of balance; including tire uniformity, tire and wheel run-out and any issues with the tire seating against the wheel. That means you not only get a perfect weighting balance, but also a re-seating of your tire and wheel if necessary. (yes, I had one wheel/tire that needed to be broken apart and re-set). If you have any vibration issues, there is NO OTHER WAY TO GO… Thanks Dave and Sedam Tire!
