Signs You Need Wheel Balancing

Although the imbalance of tires occurs over time, driving aggressively and on poorly paved roads can expedite the rate of tire wear. In turn, you’ll need to replace a tire or align the tires on your vehicle long before it should be necessary. If you’ve noticed any of these tell-tale signs, you may be in need of a tire rotation or car alignment:

  • Pulling to One Side
  • Uneven Tire Wear
  • Clanking Noise When Going Over Bumps
  • Excessive Bouncing
  • Difficulty Steering
  • Car Vibration
  • Tires Squeal When Turning
  • Front- or Back-End of Vehicle Sags
  • Loss of Control When Stopping Suddenly
  • Front-End of Vehicle Drags When Stopping

Getting to the root of the problem quickly will solve these issues, and keeping up with your scheduled maintenance will put those issues in the rear view.
