Tire Balancing

Tire balancing is important to extend the life of your tires and increase the basic safety of your car. Our staff at Seminole Tire Co. Inc is here to help with all of your tire balancing and tire service needs in Lake Placid, FL and surrounding areas.

Computerized tire balancing is checked on a machine which can detect even ¼ of an ounce of difference in weight around the wheel. Why worry about that small of a weight difference on an object which weighs so much? That tiny amount of weight travels very fast around the axle while you are driving: hundreds of times a minute. This causes enough momentum to create serious vibration and when multiplied times 4 wheels, the wobble really adds up.

When do tires need to be balanced: Tire balancing takes place any time you replace the tires on your vehicle. Since tires wear depending on driving practices and road problems, uneven wear will start to become noticeable after the first 1,000-2,000 miles of use. Tires must be checked for balance every 4,000-6,000 miles. Our mechanics at Seminole Tire Co. Inc can help determine whether your tires need to be rotated and balanced based on wear or mileage.

IMPORTANT: It is not advised to replace just one tire as this can cause major problems to the alignment, balance, and handling of the automobile.

How to tell if your tires require balancing:

  • Steering wheel vibrations while driving
  • Uneven tire tread wear
  • Ride that becomes less smooth over the life of your tires
  • Pulling to one side

The advantages of tire balancing:

  • Smoother driving experience
  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • More even tire wear
  • Extended life of tires and drive train parts
