Tire or wheel balancing is usually done through a balancing machine. Although some are done manually, it cannot guarantee 100 percent precision and ease of doing the procedure. Tire balancing is important to determine any imbalance in any wheel assembly. Aside from that, it can also help extend the life of the tire.
Wheel balancing can be done in different ways, as well as ways to implement permanent balancing systems. First of all, there are different types of tire balancing, including:
1. Static balance. Static balance, also known as “bubble balancing”, requires skill to perform. The balancing technique uses careful splitting of the inside and outside weights of the wheel to prevent further imbalance. The machine used in this type of procedure uses a bubble level as an indicator.
2. Dynamic balance. Dynamic balance, also known as “spin balancing”, is usually done via computerized spin balancers. The procedure can also be done on or off the vehicle. Dynamic balancing measures the location and weight to correct the tire’s balance. It usually works on both “hub-centric” and “lug-centric” vehicles.
During dynamic balancing, different balancing weights are commonly used. One is a clip-on lead weight that is attached to the lip of the rim. The other one is the adhesive-backed weights which can be placed in the center of the wheel. However, both of these weights may be scraped off by road elements such as rocks, mud, snow or sand.
On the other hand, some tire stores shave a part of the tire’s rubber apparently to achieve balance. As part of their service, it is also considered another form of dynamic balancing. The downside of it is that it can affect the tire’s tread count, and it is also expensive than using balancing weights. Plus, this kind of service may be limited to only up to 31-inch diameter tires.
3. Road-force balancing. This procedure not only performs the usual spin balance, but also determines whether the wheel and tire are prone to vibration while on the road. An experienced personnel measures both the wheel and tire using rollers, and then mark the points for matching. This type of technique, also called “match mounting”, results to a lesser weight for balance and straighter and more precise spins.
