Some may argue that your car’s wheels are some of the most important parts, which is why you want to make sure to keep up with regular automotive maintenance and care. Two routine services are wheel alignment and balancing. If you’re wondering if they’re the same services, they’re not.
We’re comparing wheel balancing vs. wheel alignment to help drivers better understand the difference before scheduling a service appointment with our Richfield service center.
WHAT IS WHEEL BALANCING SERVICES?
Wheels lose their balance over time, which is why wheel balancing should be done regularly. Unbalanced wheels can cause the steering wheel to vibrate or shake, making it difficult to drive around the Greater Los Angeles area. It also develops different tire wear since one part of the tire is heavier than the others.
Having your wheels balanced ensures a smooth ride while minimizing tire bouncing for better traction and control while extending the life of your tires. It’s recommended to have your wheels balanced when the tires get rotated, which is normally every 5,000 to 6,000 miles, or every six months.
WHAT IS WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICES?
Wheel alignment service should get done as needed. When you get your wheels aligned, our factory-trained service technicians will make sure the tires are perpendicular to the road and parallel to each other.
When the wheels are not aligned, it ends up resulting in the excessive and uneven tread, which can cause uneven wear on the tires and steering issues. It can even cause vehicle pulling, which could lead to drifting into the next lane as you’re driving. This is why it’s important to have your wheel alignment checked regularly.
HOW DOES WHEEL BALANCING WORK?
Wheel balancing services involve precise adjustments to your Land Rover - Range Rover’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle.
When your car has a balancing service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires.
This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as
Land Rover intended.
