Wheel Alignment vs Wheel Balancing: What’s the Difference?

A common misconception is that wheel alignment means wheel balancing. Having your wheels aligned entails having them adjusted to a perfectly straight angle to ensure your car drives straight and doesn’t prematurely wear the tyres. The process of wheel balancing, however, is simply where we counter-balance the tyre to ensure the wheel is evenly balanced, as there are manufacturer inconsistencies.

When you have a new set of tyres installed, wheel balancing is included in the price, whereas wheel alignment is typically extra. This is not to say that wheel alignment is unnecessary because of this; having your wheels aligned with every tyre change and rotation is important. Modern suspension systems have precise tolerances, and as such, require precise alignment of the wheels. Saving money on an alignment can cost you in the long run when your tyres prematurely wear.

If you notice that your car requires constant steering input to stay straight, or hear your tyres squealing as you go through a turn, this is typically a sign that your tyres will need re-alignment. We recommend having this done as soon as possible. We can align all cars that weigh under 3 tonnes, no matter the make and model. Just give us a call to book in a quick precision wheel alignment at a time that suits you.
