How to Balance Your Tires?

Balanced tires are essential for safe driving. You may need expert services as improper centering can cause significant damage. However, if you know about cars and have basic equipment, you can balance tires in just a few minutes. Here are some steps you need to keep in mind during the tire balancing process.

1. Get rid of the previous wheel weight on the wheel as this presents a big challenge when balancing the wheel. Then place the wheel and tire on the wheel balancer by inserting the axle through the wheel hub and leaving it in place. Remember that the wheel must be centered on the wheel balancer.

2. The next step is to gently turn the wheel on the wheel balancer. During this process you will find that the heaviest part of the wheel is pulled from below and the lighter part is pulled from above. Give it time to adjust its position, then mark the lightest part of the circle. 

3. You can repeat the process just to make sure you put the right sign in the right place. To complete this process, attach the ballast to the wheel by first attaching the sides to the marked area of the wheel just below the location. This in turn counteracts tire imbalance.

4. Move the wheel slightly to the 3 o'clock position. Remove the wheel, but if it turns clockwise to place the weighted down, you have added too much weight. If you roll up, it is enough to gain weight. You can keep adding and removing weights until you reach the required balance, which should stay in place for 3 hours.

Finally, to make sure the wheel stays in place, secure it with tape or similar adhesive. You will then need to install the wheels on the car and make sure the nuts are securely in place. Cepek tires are a good example of some of the best tires on the market and the beauty is that they are available in a variety of sizes that are ideal for any tire fitting.
