Wheel Balancing vs. Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment and balancing are two auto maintenance tasks that have some similarities, but are certainly not the same thing. So, how exactly do the wheel balancing vs. wheel alignment differences break down? Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chevrolet is here to enlighten drivers on the crucial difference. If it’s time to get your Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV serviced, you can count on our service center for expert vehicle care and attention.

What is Wheel Balancing?

As time passes, your wheels may become unbalanced, which can cause your car to shake or vibrate. This can lead to unfortunate safety issues down the line, so don’t delay in getting your wheels rebalanced. One big reason not to wait is that you’ll wear down the treads on your tires unevenly if the wheels are unbalanced, bringing you to buy tires sooner than you should need to.

When your wheels are balanced correctly, you’ll have a smooth and safe ride. You should get your wheels rebalanced when you get your tires rotated every 5,000 to 6,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes sooner.

What is Wheel Alignment?

If your wheels are properly aligned, you’ll have tires that are perpendicular to the road and parallel to each other. If your wheels aren’t aligned right, you will have the same uneven wear on your treads that wheel balance issues cause. You might also run into steering issues which can exacerbate over time, so again, don’t delay. Schedule service with Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chevrolet to get you back on the road safely.

Our mechanics will measure the camber, toe, and caster of each of your tires to undo issues that can be caused by uneven roads, potholes, and mistakes like hitting a curb. We love taking care of tires, so you can feel at home bringing your car in for service here. We’ve been helping drivers get their tires in the proper place for years.
