What is wheel balancing and alignment?

An alignment machine is a piece of garage equipment that is used to align all the wheels of a vehicle during assembly, as well as when a vehicle is brought in for repair. Wheel misalignment can be caused by hitting potholes, driving fast over speed bumps, hitting the curb, or even minor accidents. A wheel alignment machine ensures all the wheels are fully in-sync and delivers a smoother ride with a more uniform wear on vehicle tyres. A wheel balancing machine is used to prevent unwanted vibrations when driving your vehicle

In addition to checking all signs of poor alignment, the wheel alignment machine also inspects the toe, camber, and caster, which are the basic components of measuring wheel alignment. Thanks to advancements in technology, there is professional-grade software integrated into wheel alignment machines, which works to improve the quality of inspection and shorten the length of the alignment process.


Why is wheel balancing important?

Correct wheel balancing ensures the weight of the wheel and tyre combined are evenly distributed, ensuring a smoother ride.

Unbalanced wheels can also lead to poorer fuel efficiency, tyres wearing out more quickly, vehicle suspension issues, and potentials accident caused by tyre scrubbing, bald spots, and uneven tread wear. 

It is critical to make customers aware that a vehicle is a complex system of connected parts. When elements are out of sync it can lead to further costs down the line and even accidents. For that reason, it is imperative that you balance and align your customers’ vehicle using the right equipment that ensures ultimate precision and safety on the road.


How often should vehicle wheels be balanced and aligned?

Typically, it is recommended that vehicle wheels balanced and aligned every 2 to 3 years. However, to ensure the optimal safety of a vehicle, it is best to opt for wheel alignment every time the oil is changed. A routine check-up and servicing ensure there is never a situation where the wheels are misaligned, which could lead to further issues vehicle.
