High-Speed Computer Balance

Properly balanced tires are important for driving comfort and long tire life. An unbalanced tire can cause vibration, resulting in driver fatigue, premature tire wear and unnecessary wear to your vehicle's suspension components.  Tires should be balanced each time they are mounted on a wheel.  This includes installation of a new tire, or just remounting the tire after a proper  flat repair.  As tires wear, the balancing characteristics may change, leading to a vibration that develops over time.  Tires should be re-balanced at the first sign of vibration or "shimmy".

Vibration Diagnostics

Do you have a shimmy or vibration that you just can't seem to "shake"?  Is the standard balance not doing the job?  Using the latest in technology, Sullivan Tire will diagnose even the slightest cause of vibration or ride disturbance.  We want you to enjoy the time you spend in your vehicle!

What's involved?

  1. Wheel Analysis:  Precise measurements are taken of your wheels, determining the contribution they make toward the vibration 
  2. Tire Analysis:  Precise measurements are taken of the tire, determining the contribution they make toward the vibration
  3. Tire/Wheel Indexing:  The high, or heavy spot of the tire is matched with the low, or light spot of the wheel to make the combined assembly work in harmony
  4. High-Speed Computer Balance:  Small weights are attached to the wheel in precise areas to complete the process
