Wheel Balancing vs. Wheel Alignment

Mechanics Aligning Vehicle

Wheel alignment and wheel balancing are important for long-lasting wheels on North Wales roadways. This service can help your vehicle’s tires stay in great condition longer as well as help you avoid possible tire issues in the future. Learn about the difference between wheel balancing vs. wheel alignment with the North Penn Mazda service center today and schedule a service appointment should you be in need of one yourself.


What Is Wheel Balancing?

Each vehicle should have the wheels balanced every now and again. If they are unbalanced, the steering wheel, or even the vehicle itself, may shake. This is caused by uneven tire tread on unbalanced tires, making one heavier than the other. Having your wheels balanced will help you achieve a smoother ride as well as diminish the risk of losing traction. It’s recommended that your wheels be balanced, as well as rotated, once every 5,000 to 6,000 miles. Contact our service team with any questions.

What Is Wheel Alignment?

Having your vehicle’s wheels aligned is something that doesn’t need to be done as often as having your wheels balanced. This is an as-needed service that can be performed when an issue is detected, as opposed to a regular part of routine scheduled maintenance. Wheel alignment just refers to when a technician makes sure that your car’s wheels are parallel to each other. This prevents uneven treads and unnecessary wear on your vehicle’s tires. If the wheels aren’t aligned properly, you can have steering issues that could cause a risk when driving through Chalfont.
