Tire Balancing is important to extend the life of your tires, as well as increase the basic safety of your automobile. J and M Automotive offers quality affordable tire balancing in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles and surrounding areas.
What it does: Out of balance tires could lead to uneven wear, vibration and possibly risky driving performance. It is important to balance tires often based on your vehicle’s specifications.
When do tires need to be balanced: Tires are balanced when you replace 2 or 4 tires on your vehicle. Since tires wear depending on driving routines and roadway conditions, unequal wear will certainly begin to become visible after the first 1,000-2,000 miles of use. Tires need to be inspected for balance every 4,000-6,000 miles. Our technicians will help determine whether your tires should be rotated and balanced based upon wear or mileage.
IMPORTANT: It is not advised to replace just one tire as this might cause major problems to the alignment, balance and handling of the car.
The best ways to recognize if your tires require balancing:
- Vibrations when steering
- Uneven tread wear
- Steering that comes to be less smooth over the life of the tires
- Pulling to one side
The benefits of well balanced tires are:
- Smoother driving experience
- Increased miles per gallon
- A lot more even tire wear
- Extended life of tires and drive train elements
