Upgrade Your Ride with Road Force Balancing
At Byrne's Garage, we understand that for most drivers, standard balancing procedures are sufficient to keep your vehicle running smoothly. However, if you're experiencing persistent vibrations, especially with today's larger wheel sizes, it might be time to explore road force balancing.
Gone are the days of the average 15'' rim – nowadays, the average wheel size has skyrocketed to around 18 inches, with some cars rolling off the lot sporting impressive 22'' wheels. While these larger rims and shorter tire sidewalls offer improved handling and responsiveness, they also make vehicles more prone to vibration forces.
That's where road force balancing comes in. Also known as ride matching, this service is one of the many tire services we offer and is the most effective solution for resolving runout or force variation vibrations.
Here's how it works: our road force tire balancer utilizes a load-roller to mimic the force exerted by the road, collecting data on the combined uniformity of your wheel and tire package. This sophisticated equipment measures force variation and runout of the entire assembly, as well as the radial and lateral runout of the individual wheel and tire, providing comprehensive insights into their performance.
Based on the collected data, our tire technicians are then able to take appropriate steps to address any inconsistencies, which may involve adding weights or even remounting the tire and wheel.
While various factors can contribute to ride vibrations, road force balancing is typically recommended if standard balancing methods prove ineffective.
