Wheel Balancing Heidelberg West

Experiencing bad vibrations? To help ensure a smooth ride and tyre longevity, TopGear Wheels & Tyres offer wheel balancing.

What is Wheel Balancing?

Wheel balancing is a attune for your wheel-tyre set. The process evenly distributes weight around the entire circumference of the unit to ensure that the tyres and wheels spin correctly and without vibration. Balancing your wheels reduces potential vibration felt in the steering wheel, seat, or floorboard and aids in accurate tyre treadwear.

Signs of Unbalanced Wheels

  • The vehicle pulling towards left or right.
  • Uneven or rapid tyre wear.
  • The steering wheel isn’t aligned with the direction of your vehicle.
  • Squealing tyres.

Benefits of Wheel Alignment

  • Safe and predictable vehicle control
  • More comfortable vehicle ride
  • Reduced driver fatigue from making continual steering corrections
  • Improved fuel economy and maximised tyre mileage

Wheel Alignment in Heidelberg & Surrounding Areas

At TopGear Wheels & Tyres, we use an alignment machine to check your vehicle’s current alignment and as necessary, make adjustments for the overall safety of your vehicle.

Thrust alignment

Thrust alignment is where the front wheels of an automobile are aligned to the rear axle. It’s called a thrust alignment because the term “thrust” refers to the direction in which the rear wheels are pushing. This direction should match as closely as possible to the direction that the front wheels are facing when positioned forward; a mismatch here can create undue stress on your car’s suspension system and wheels, as well as reduce power and your likelihood of getting good gas mileage.

Two-wheel alignment

Only deals with the two front wheels. These wheels are aligned straight toward the geometric centre of the automobile, and the rear wheels and thrust direction are left alone. The theory is that the rear wheels should already be aligned with the center of the car. Depending on what type of car you have, a two-wheel alignment may be all you need. In fact, before the widespread use of front wheel drive came into play, the two wheel alignments were the only alignments done for almost all cars on the road.

Four-wheel alignment

Much as the name suggests, all four wheels on both axles are adjusted so they are parallel to each other, the ground, and the thrust angle of the car. Generally, the four wheel alignment should be done whenever possible and applicable, depending on the vehicle.
