Balancing your wheels helps prevent uneven tire wear and minimizes wheel vibration. Balancing is performed anytime you put new tires on your car and should be performed every 6,000 miles or as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.
An unbalanced tire can cause premature wear of the tire, strut and shock, wheel vibration, poor handling, and excessive noise. Unbalanced tires also cause reduced mileage expectancy. Have your tires balance checked at your Goodyear Auto Service Center if you notice any of these symptoms.
A wheel balance consists of small weights placed around the wheel to help balance the tire and wheel assembly, ensuring a smooth and comfortable ride.
Rotating the position of each tire helps equalize tread wear, helping to maximize the life of your tires. Front tires tend to wear faster than rear tires on front wheel drive vehicles due to added pressure/resistance from steering. If your tires aren't rotated regularly, they may need to be replaced prematurely. Rotating the position of each tire helps equalize treadwear to help maximize the life of your tires.
Plan to have your tires rotated every 6,000 miles.
Properly repairing a tire that has deflated or is losing air or has picked up a nail, screw or sharp object is critical. Some tires may be repaired if they continually lose air or have a puncture in the tread area. Whenever you have a tire issue, be sure to have it inspected by a tire professional at your Goodyear Auto Service Center to determine whether it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
Tire repairs need to be performed correctly in accordance with strict industry standards. Before any repair, a service professional must properly inspect the tire by removing it from the wheel and inspect the outside and inside to determine the extent of the damage and to determine if the tire can be repaired.
When a tire can be repaired, your Goodyear Auto Service Center performs a complete repair by using a tire repair plug and patch combination. Once completed, the technicians will rebalance the tire and rim assembly and reset the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), if applicable.
