Once you have made the choice of the right tires for your vehicle and the kind of driving you do, it’s time to get them mounted and balanced. Some shops will have separate tire mounting machine, and separate tire balancer machine. Some will combine tire mounting and balancing in the same piece of equipment. One or the other, the important part is to get the new tires balanced.
Balancing a tire involves adding small weights onto the rim to reduce the usual wheel unbalance. Tire balancing machine spins the wheel with the mounted tire to allow technicians to ascertain how much balancing it will require. Some modern equipment provides touchless sonar for rim width, and spins the tire assembly at high speeds to determine its heaviest point. Once the measurement is performed, the machine will indicate correct placements of the weights in order minimize both static and dynamic imbalances.
