Road Force Balancing FAQs
How Does Road Force Balancing Work?
The road force balancing machine simulates your vehicle's weight on top of the tire while it spins. This mimics the tire being driven on the road (or putting “road force” on the tire + wheel), which accounts for imbalances that you normally wouldn’t feel until the wheel was put back on your vehicle.
Road force balancing helps solve vibration problems that traditional wheel balancers can’t fix, such as:
- radial-force related problems associated with tire uniformity
- tire and rim runout
- wheel to balancer mounting errors
- improper bead seat of the tire to the rim
All of this equals the most precise balance you can find and offers the smoothest ride possible.
Do All Vehicles Need Road Force Balancing?
While low-profile (aspect ratio of 45 and lower) high performance tires will get the most benefit out of road force balancing, we believe every tire on the road should be installed with precision and care.
It’s no surprise that most of the premium brand dealers such as BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Audi, etc. recommend road force balancing.
