Wheel & Tire Balancing / Tpms

Wheel Balancing: It is the process of equalizing the weight of the combined tire and wheel assembly so that it spins smoothly at high speed. It is imperative to keep the wheels balanced in your vehicle as over time wheels can lose their balance. Also, every time you change tires for the season or get new ones, wheel balancing must be done by a professional. You can feel your vehicle wobble while driving if the wheels are out of balance. It can also cause very irregular and damaging wear on the tires costing you a lot of money in the long run or forcing you to replace the tires prematurely. If you are feeling any of the above, bring in your vehicle to Dashmesh Auto se we can diagnose it and fix it as required.

Tire Rotation: Tire rotations should be a part of your preventive maintenance for your vehicle. Front wheels get most of the wear and tear during turning, braking, acceleration as well as because of the weight of the engine. You should be familiar with the manufacturer’s recommendation for your car as some of them recommend cross rotation pattern. Some vehicles have different size tires and will require different care. Most manufacturers recommend rotating your tires every 8000 to 10,000 km. Regular tire rotations are necessary and have several benefits.

Benefits of a tire rotation:
  • Extends the life of your tires
  • Extend tread life
  • Prevent uneven wear and tear
  • Maximize fuel economy
  • Improve the stability of the vehicle
  • Keeps your vehicle safe to drive

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) tracks the amount of pressure in tires and alerts a driver when the pressure is at an insufficient level. This system warns you if one of your tires does not have the right amount of pressure for safe driving conditions. Two different types of TPMS are Direct TPMS and Indirect TPMS. A direct TPMS receives information from pressure sensors inside each tire on the vehicle, while an indirect TPMS uses speed sensor data from the wheels to determine tire pressure levels. Having the correct amount of pressure in the tires is imperative as without that, it can be a safety hazard to be driving the vehicle. If there is too much pressure in the tires, the car tends to bounce and not have sufficient traction. With too less a pressure, the tires can heat up and cause unnecessary wear and tear. To avoid any unfortunate accidents, bring in your vehicle to us so we can ensure that the tire pressure is at a safe level.
