Wheel balancing

Wheels are balanced by adding weights to the wheel's rim flange in order to have a vibration free and smooth ride. Unbalanced wheels lead to excessive wear on the tyres, bearings and suspension. This results in uneven vibrations of the wheels and makes the vehicle unstable. The contact with the road is reduced and the tyres "bounce". This leads to the tyres and the shock absorbers wearing out more quickly. Static balancing involves using counterweights on the outer wheel rim edge or flange. The dynamic balancing of the wheels also involves using appropriate counterweights, but at varying positions on both the outer and inner wheel flanges.
