BMW Tire Balance and Wheel Alignment Service
Both tire balancing and wheel alignments contribute to a smoother ride in your BMW. A tire balance corrects the weight imbalance on your tire and wheel assemblies, while an alignment corrects the angles of the tires so they always come in contact with the road in the right way. Schedule any service needed on your BMW with our Service Center in Santa Rosa today!
BMW Tire Balancing
Tire balancing, or wheel balancing, corrects the uneven distribution of weight in the wheels. When your wheels aren’t properly balanced, it can lead to problems such as vibration, excessive tire wear, and even cause damage to the suspension.
While your BMW is receiving a tire balancing service, its tires and wheels are mounted onto a tire balancing machine. The machine spins the tire and wheel assembly to measure the imbalance so that our technician can precisely install the correct tire weights to achieve a properly balanced wheel and tire assembly. Tire balancing and wheel alignment happen in the same service, but it’s important to understand that they are not the same.
BMW Wheel Alignment
Wheel alignment refers to the adjustment of your vehicle’s suspension. The suspension is the system that connects your vehicle to its wheels. This is not an alignment of the wheels themselves.
A wheel alignment will keep your vehicle from veering to the right or left. It can also improve the handling of your vehicle and stop unusual on-the-road vibrations.
You should seek alignment for your vehicle’s wheels when:
- You get new tires
- You lower or lift your vehicle
- Suspension parts affecting tire angles are replaced or adjusted
- You’ve had a fender-bender or a hard impact with a curb or road debris
- It’s been a year since they were last aligned
- You notice uneven tire wear, steering pull, or an off-center steering wheel
