Experienced Tire Balance Service for Las Vegas Drivers
Tire balancing is a recurring maintenance service that helps you get the most out of your Mercedes-Benz vehicle – and certainly one you shouldn’t ignore. In addition to enhancing handling and performance, routine tire balance service preserves your tires for a longer period of time, and combats shaking and vibration caused by uneven wear and tear. Located near Summerlin and Spring Valley, Fletcher Jones Imports’ tire center is staffed with Mercedes-Benz Certified Technicians who are ready to put your vehicle’s tires back in balance!
What Does Tire Balancing Involve?
If your vehicle is outfitted with OEM Mercedes-Benz tires, chances are you want to keep them even and in great condition. Tire balancing does just that; the procedure involves removing the wheels and placing them on a wheel balancer, which rotates and applies pressure to a singular wheel to pinpoint imbalances. Taking the machine’s readings into account, our technicians strategically apply weights to the planes on the tires’ rims for improved handling, performance, and tire life.
When is Tire Balance Needed?
Tire balancing is suggested every 3,000 to 6,000 miles, depending on road conditions and your personal driving style. It’s also not unusual for a vehicle to need tire balancing ahead of schedule. Hitting a pothole, repeated hard braking, damage to front-end parts, etc. can throw your tires out of balance and give them an abnormal shape, preventing your vehicle from traveling straight and true. In any case, if your vehicle shakes or vibrates at 60-70 mph – the calling card of imbalanced tires – a service visit is in order.
