Why Balancing Winter Tire is Important At Sils Auto

IMAGES ABOVE RECENT VEHICLE: 2005 Toyota Camry. Winter tires to be installed. Recent installed but shaking. Inspected tire and noted lots of dirt stuck to inner rim. Rims cleaned and tire pressure set to specification. Pre reading on tire was out, removed all weights, and re-balanced tire with correct weights. After tire came up "ok" to install. Balancing a tire prevents shaking of the steering wheel of vehicle when driving, usually felt between 90-120 kms. Also time issue, a return visit to the shop is a waste of time. At Sil's Complete Auto Repair we're not a tire shop but a auto repair facility that does tires. Trained techs also inspect brakes, steering and suspension for your safety. In this vehicles case the rear brakes are very low and need attention. Something a Quick lube, or Costco retailer does not have the trained staff to look at. A repair not performed at the correct time may lead to additional monies spent later on. Also all wheels are torqued to proper specification and we also asses wheel nuts. In this Toyota Camry case the OEM factory wheels nuts will not work on the replacement steel rims for the vehicle and need and alternative set of wheel nut to safely hold the wheel on. The pile of stuff is the dirt we finally cleaned from the winter rims. Not all winter tires on your car will have this accumulation of dirt but tires in most cases are out of balance we find.
