Why having your tires balanced is an important safety measure


Tire balancing is important to extend the life of your tires, as well as increase the basic safety of your vehicle.

Moore Tires Inc. offers quality affordable tire balancing in Illinois.

Out of balance tires can lead to uneven wear, vibration and potentially unsafe driving performance. It is very important to balance tires frequently based on your car's requirements.

Tires are balanced when you replace two or four tires on your automobile. Because tires wear depending on driving routines and road conditions, unequal wear will start to become recognizable after the first 1,000-2,000 miles of usage.

Typically, wheels need to be balanced every 4,000 to 6,000 miles. You can schedule your wheel balancing service in conjunction with your regular oil change. It is recommended to have your tire balance checked at least every two years, or more often in areas where roads are not well maintained.

The technicians at Moore Tires can easily help identify whether your tires should be rotated and balanced based on wear or mileage.

It is not advised to replace just one tire as this might create major problems to the alignment, balance and handling of the vehicle.

Many neglect balancing their tires and only have their tires rotated periodically.

You can tell if your tires require balancing if you are experiencing vibrations when driving – especially over 40 miles per hour – or notice uneven tread wear. If your steering becomes less smooth over the life of the tires or your car is pulling to one side, your tires may need to be balanced.

Balanced tires offer a smoother ride, better miles per gallon and more even tire wear.
