Reasons Why Your VW Needs Tire Balancing

Car tires are almost never fully round when they’re made, resulting in a need for tire balancing. This is done when the tires are initially put on the car with weights put on the rim where the tire isn’t fully round or is lacking in rubber. Over time, the small weights can come off the rim. Wear and tear from the roads also contribute to the loss of tire balance, requiring the rebalancing of the wheel for proper function.

Signs and Sounds Associated With the Need for Tire Balancing on Your Volkswagen

A tire that’s out of balance can exhibit one or more signs that include:

  • Uneven tread wear
  • Decrease in fuel economy
  • Vibration in the steering wheel, car, or floorboards at high speed
  • Loud noise at any speed

It doesn’t take much for a wheel to get out of balance. A tire can go out of balance with as little a loss of half an ounce of rubber. However, you might not notice anything wrong at this point, and you won’t know that you’re in need of a wheel balancing service.

How Frequently You Should Get Tire Balancing Service

There’s no specific time frame for tire balancing due to the fact there are several different causes that put a wheel out of balance. However, you should get your tires rotated every 5,000 miles, and you can have our service center check your tires for balance when you come in for wheel rotation.
