Balancing Tires

Balancing your tires is important. If overlooked, unbalanced tires can lead to uneven wear, vibration and potentially unsafe driving conditions. Your local technician at a Gemini Automotive Care facility can help determine whether your tires need to be rotated and balanced based on wear or mileage.

Getting your tires balanced can mean:

  • Smoother ride

  • Increased Comfort

  • Less driver fatigue

  • Enhanced tire wear

  • Enhanced for tires and drive train components


Troubleshooting Tires

Keep an eye out for these common signs that you may need new tires or service. If your vehicle exhibits any of these symptoms, take it to your Gemini Automotive Care Provider.

  • When driving, your car pulls to one side or the other.

  • You notice rhythmic vibrations.

  • Your tires are wearing unevenly.

  • Your tires won't maintain proper air pressure.

Description: Tire rotation refers to the regular practice of switching the position of each tire on the car.

 

Purpose: Tire rotation helps to equalize tread wear and is critical to gain the maximum life from your tire investment.

 

Maintenance Tips/Suggestions: Refer to your owner's manual for the recommended rotation interval and pattern; generally a rotation interval of 6,000 miles is recommended. The rotation pattern varies with different makes and models, which shows the tire locations during rotation. Some vehicles have different size tires on the front and back or directional tires. This limits the locations that a tire may take on the vehicle. When in doubt, check the owner's manual or consult a professional technician for guidance. Tire rotation time also offers a good opportunity to have the tires and wheels balanced. It's another step you can take to maximize your tire investment.

Question: I need new tires. How do I know which tires to get?

 

Nordonia Tire and Service Goodyear Answer:

Letís look at selecting new tires in light of three factors: Function, Fit, and Value.

 

Function: This gets at what your needs are for new tires: OH weather conditions, Macedonia terrain, Northfield temperatures, etc.

 

Most new family vehicles in and around Northfield, Nordonia, and Macedonia Ohio come with all-season tires. They can be used all year long and do pretty well in most Ohio road conditions Ė but they arenít ideal at the extremes.

 

Winter tires have a more aggressive tread for handling snow and ice on freeways and they have a rubber compound that helps them have better traction as Macedonia temperatures drop below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Definitely better stopping and road-holding characteristics for Northfield, Nordonia and Macedonia car owners than all-season tires in winter weather. Dedicated summer tires enhance warm Ohio weather performance driving for Northfield car owners.

 

If you drive off-road around Macedonia, there is a spectrum of tires from all-terrain (a good mix of highway and off-road capability) to dedicated off-road tires.

 

The key is to communicate with your Nordonia Tire and Service Goodyear tire professional and think about the function you need to get the type of tire, load rating, speed rating and wear rating you need.

 

Fit: The easiest thing is to settle upon tires in the same size that were installed by the automobile manufacturer. If you want a different size wheel or tire profile, be sure to work with your Nordonia Tire and Service Goodyear technician so you can make sure that your new wheels and tires fit properly and donít rub in bumps or turns. Itís also important to make sure that important safety systems like anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control arenít adversely affected by the new tire size (the computer may need to be recalibrated to make necessary critical adjustments).

Value: Note, I didnít say price. The tire that meets all your needs AND has the warranty and tread life you expect will commonly not be the least pricey option Ė but it may well return the best value for your tire dollar.

What do those numbers on your tires represent?

Search tires by vehicle: How to find your version/option

Version/option can affect your tire size. It should be located on an information placard in your vehicle. In vehicles made after 2005, this placard will be located in the driver's side door. In older vehicles, the placard may be located instead in the rear passenger doorjamb, fuel filler, glove box or center console, or engine compartment. For example, the version/option of a Honda Accord EX V6 is EX V6.

Metric, or tire type, defines the proper use of the tire. For example, a "P" designation means that it is a passenger car tire. An "LT" designation is for a light truck.

 

Tire width is the width of the tire measured in mm from sidewall to sidewall. This tire width is 215 mm.

 

Rim diameter is the width in inches or cm of the wheel from one end to the other. The diameter of this wheel is 16 in.

 

Speed rating tells you the maximum service speed for a tire. A speed rating isn't a recommendation to exceed speed limits, and doesn't indicate how well a tire handles or corners. Learn more about tire Speed Ratings.

Aspect ratio is the ratio of the height of the tire's cross-section to its width. On our example, 60 means that the height is equal to 60% of the tire's width.

 

Construction tells you how the layers of the tire were put together. "R" stands for radial, which means the layers run radially across the tire. "B" stands for bias construction, which means that the layers run diagonally across the tire.

 

Load index is an assigned number that corresponds with the load-carrying capacity of a tire. Most passenger car tire load indexes range from 75 to 100, but a few carry more. You'll also find the maximum load elsewhere on the tire sidewall, both in lbs and kg. Learn more about tire load index.

Wheel Balance - Wheel balance weights can fall off and cause vibrations. When this happens you need to get the wheel rebalanced. It's estimated that 70,000 tons of lead weights are lost each year worldwide. Many states are banning the use of lead wheel balance weights for environmental reasons. Alternate materials such as zinc are now being used.

 


 

Wheel Alignment - Wheels are aligned with specific settings for toe-in and toe-out, positive and negative camber, and positive and negative castor. Each vehicle model can have different settings. Poor alignment affects your handling and causes your tires to wear very quickly.

 


 

TPMS - Tire Pressure Monitoring System

As part of the effort to increase awareness of the need to maintain proper tire pressure, the U.S. government has taken steps to make it easier for drivers to be aware of potentially unsafe low pressure in their tires. As of the 2008 model year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) now requires that all passenger cars and light trucks feature the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). In conjunction with the new requirements, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (AAM) has initiated a consumer safety campaign focusing on the importance of maintaining proper tire pressure.

 

At Nordonia Tire & Service, we service Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)

TPMS is an automated system that monitors the air pressure in a vehicle's tires. flat tire Macedonia OhioWhen air pressure in one or more tires drops 25 percent or more below the correct pressure, a warning indicator alerts the driver. TPMS typically delivers these alerts to the driver through one of two types of warning lights on the dashboard.

 

1. The first uses the official TPMS symbol, which is a cross-section of a tire with an exclamation mark in the center.tire inflation Macedonia ohio

2. The second is a top-view graphic image of a car that indicates which tires are low.


Tire pressure is monitored through one of two methods: direct or indirect. Direct TPMS monitors the actual air pressure inside each tire via a sensor mounted within the tire. Indirect TPMS measures tire pressure by monitoring the speed and rotation of each individual wheel. When a significant variation in speed and rotation is detected in one or more wheels when compared with the others, it is often an indication of underinflation. This information is then transmitted to the vehicle's on-board computer, and the driver is alerted.

However, while TPMS systems offer increased safety to drivers through low pressure warnings, they are not meant to be a substitute for proper tire pressure maintenance.
