Balancing weights: small help - big effect!
Imbalance occurs if the weight of a wheel is not balanced around the center axle. The imbalance is caused by uneven tire wear, heavy braking and steering, and the weight of the valves, which is only a few grams more than the opposite site. While a wheel imbalance is barely noticeable at low speeds, it is perceptible at higher speeds as it is amplified a thousandfold due to physical laws.
The result of uneven distribution can be increased brake wear, wheel bearing wear, steering gear wear, etc., as well as steering vibration. Therefore, wheel balancing with balancing weights is recommended by all car manufacturers. Wheel balancing not only improves driving comfort and braking performance, but also reduces wear and tear and thus repair costs.
