Balance Tires In Etobicoke, ON

Tire balancing is a tune-up for your wheel-tire set. This service ensures that your vehicle is always at peak performance and helps increase the lifespan of your tires. It makes sure that weight is evenly distributed around the entire circumference of your vehicle. If your tires are unevenly balanced, it can lead to faster tread wear, poor fuel economy, and decreased ride comfort.

If you think your tires need balancing, or your vehicle needs any other tire service, including tire rotations, tire replacement, tire repair, or anything else, visit our service centre to book a service appointment here at Castle Honda in Etobicoke, Ontario.

How Tires Are Rebalanced

Our expert mechanics attach a wheel-mounted tire to a tire balancing machine. The wheel is then spun while vibration measurements are taken. These measurements tell the technician whether or not the weight is spread out evenly and where more weight needs to be added. If there is an imbalance, our technician adjusts the weights or adds more where necessary. Sometimes, they need to move the tire on the wheel then rebalance due to a heavy spot on the wheel and tire lined up together, causing a more significant imbalance.

When to Get Tire Balancing Done

  • If you feel a vibration in the steering wheel, the floorboard, or your seat that worsens at faster speeds
  • Generally, every 8000 km or every two years. Usually, technicians will do tire balancing and rotation during the same service visit (different services).
  • If you get a flat tire or repair a tire.
  • If you buy any new tires or replace a tire.
  • If you notice one or more of the weights on the tires' rim falls off.
  • If you notice uneven tire wear.

If any of these apply to your vehicle, we can help. Our expert technicians at Castle Honda in Etobicoke, Ontario, work quickly and efficiently using our genuine parts to help resolve any problem you may be experiencing with your Honda vehicle.
