Wheel Service and Balancing

If you are in the Jonesboro or Riverdale area, we should be your main choice for Wheel Service. Often confused with wheel alignment, a properly balanced wheel is a perfectly tuned wheel-tire combination. We place measured lead weights on the opposite side of the “heavy spot”—the noticeable tread wear on your unbalanced tire.
If your wheels need balancing, Larry’s New & Used Tires is here to help.
Here is a guide on how to know if your wheels are properly balanced:

How do I know if I need my wheels balanced?

Is your vehicle vibrating at certain speeds, say, between 50 and 70 mph? If so, chances are your wheel is out of balance. One section of your tire is heavier than the other because it’s endured more exposure to the friction and heat of the road. Such a simple and inexpensive procedure makes a profound difference. A properly balanced wheel should also satisfy the vibrating problems of most customers.

Look out for Scalloped, erratic wear pattern on tires, as well as Vibration in steering wheel, seat, or floorboard at certain speeds. Look for these signs, and if you find either one, come visit Larry’s New & Used Tires at either our Jonesboro or Riverdale locations.
