A procedure that improves tire performance by ensuring that the weight of the wheels is evenly distributed.
A process of finding heavy spots on a tyre and adding weight to the opposite sides to overcomes those heavy spots.
Adding small weights to the rim of a wheel so that there are no out-ofbalance forces when the wheel rotates.
A procedure that ensures that the weight of a wheel is distributed evenly so that your car moves smoothly on the road at any speed, with no vibration in the steering wheel or rear seat. Static balancing distributes the weight of the wheel evenly around the axle or spindle and is done with the wheels off the car. Dynamic balancing distributes the weight evenly as the wheel and tire hang down vertically and also balances the brake drum. (This can be done with the wheels on the car.)
Proper distribution of weight around a tire and wheel assembly to counteract centrifugal forces acting upon the heavy areas in order to maintain a true running wheel perpendicular to its rotating axis.
