Wheel balancing distributes the weight of the wheels and tires as they rotate. Since they reach a high rotational speed and are subjected to high centrifugal forces, balancing them is essential to ensure your comfort behind the wheel.
To extend their life cycle, have wheels balanced every 20,000 km, as well as any time a tire needs to be repaired, replaced or installed. Over and above these general recommendations, it’s important to contact your service advisor as soon as you detect one of the issues that lead to wheel imbalance.
There are some warning signs when a tire and wheel assembly is not balanced. The first sign is a slight vibration when you're driving. If your tires are worn unevenly, you may feel it when you’re driving and, especially, when braking.
