BMW Mount & Balance Tires St Louis | Mounting & Balancing Tires And BMW Wheels

Whenever you get a new set of tires or wheels, you're going to want to have an expert mount and balance them - unless, of course, you're an expert and you have your own mounting and balancing equipment. If your wheels and tires are out of balance, your BMW's ride can be affected. If you're experiencing vibration that starts at around 40 mph, and gets worse as your speed increases, chances are you have an out of balance tire. Most of us are sensitive to vibrations while driving, and even a small vibration can be extremely annoying. And that's not all - the repetitive vibrations can make your tires wear out faster, along with the wheel bearings, shocks, and other suspension components.Vibrations can also occur if the wheel and/or tire are not completely round. If there's a high spot on the wheel and also a high spot on the tire, and they happen to be lined up with each other, then the high spot will be even more pronounced. A trained technician can usually correct this problem by rotating the tire slightly on the wheel, so the high spots are no longer matched up. Plaza BMW is the best place to mount and balance a new set of tires or your current wheels.

What Is Mounting &Balancing? | Why Do You Balance Tires? | BMW Wheel & Tire Service Near Me

Mounting is pretty self-explanatory - it's simply the act of putting the tires onto the wheels, then installing the wheels onto your vehicle's axles. Balancing your wheels and tires is a bit more complicated. A wheel is said to be in balance when the center of gravity is identical to the axis of there's no vibration when the tire spins. An easy way to understand the concept of a balanced tire is to think about your washing machine during the spin cycle. If the clothes are evenly distributed inside the washer, no problem. But when things get unbalanced, it's a completely different experience - and you certainly wouldn't want that to happen to your tires!
