Wheel Balance & Alignment
We know tyres here at Goodyear Autocare and with a regular wheel balance and wheel alignment, we'll help you get the most out of yours.
Wheel balancing and alignment is key component for getting maximum life from your tyres as well as ensuring the safety and handling of your vehicle. Regular wheel balancing, tyre rotation and wheel alignments can reduce unnecessary tyre wear as well as maintain safe driving stability.
As a tyre wears, its weight distribution may become unevenly balanced. An unbalanced wheel will cause vibration to the vehicle that can shorten the life of tyres, bearings, shocks and other components. Regular wheel balances are needed as tyre wear is constantly affecting the balance of the wheel. If you notice steering wheel or vehicle vibration, it’s a good idea to bring your car into a Goodyear Autocare for a wheel balance.
Wheel Alignment makes sure that all the tyres on the vehicle are pointing in the same direction to ensure the least amount of wear to your tyres. It keeps individual tyres from pulling outwards or pushing on the vehicle and eases pressure on the suspension system for better and safer handling. The small investment of the wheel alignment cost could save your vehicle by extending tyre life and improving your fuel mileage. If your car is pulling to the side, a wheel alignment could fix this issue. Goodyear Autocare recommends you align your wheels at least once per year.
Your tyres wear at different rates. Rotating your tyres achieves more even tyre wear, for longer lasting tyres. We recommend rotating your tyres every 10,000km to prolong the life span of your tyre. A Goodyear Autocare specialist can also check your tyre pressure to ensure you are maximising your car's fuel economy.
At Goodyear Autocare, a wheel and tyre check is conducted during every service.
