How often should I have my tires balanced?

Nothing can be more frustrating than a vibration that occurs at highway speeds. Balancing tires reduce tire wear and provide a smoother ride. Surprising enough, tires aren’t manufactured perfectly round. Sometimes even with new tires, weight isn’t evenly distributed. There are some spots on your tire that are heavier than others. When new tires are mounted on wheels, auto technicians use a high-speed spin balance to locate and eliminate vibrations. In some cases, small weights attach to the rims with clips to combat the heavier spots in the tires. Most manufacturers recommend that you have your tires rotated every 5,000-7000 miles. Refer to your owner’s manual to see what’s best for your vehicle. Bring your vehicle to Ferber’s Tire and Auto for a tire rotation today!
