Tire balancing is the process through which flaws and irregularities in tire manufacturing are found, calculated, and corrected in order to prolong tire life and provide a comfortable ride. Static tire balancing and dynamic tire balancing are the two fundamental types of balance. The dynamic tire balancing process comes in three different flavors. These employ the on-the-car high speed approach, the high speed spin balancer method, and a more modern discovery called Tire balance beads at Checkered Flag Tire Balancing Beads.
TIRE BALANCING METHODS
Tire balancing can be done in a variety of ways, and the Tire Terminal provides two of them. We provide both the conventional High-Speed Balance and Tire balancing beads. There is evidence to support the claim that balancing beads can provide you the same smooth ride as a high-speed balance machine while also up to 10% longer-lasting your tires.
How Does Tire Balancing Beads Work at Checkered Flag Tire Balancing Beads?
The average number of tire revolutions per mile at 60 miles per hour would be 550 per minute. The 60 pounds of centrifugal force will compress upwards and downwards on the suspension 550 times per minute, which can be translated as 1100 shock waves, because the vehicle's suspension only permits vertical motion.
When the reflex frequency of the suspension and the resonating combined force of the rebound and the out-of-balance centrifugal force are in sync and operating at highway speeds, vibration is maximized. This dribbling effect multiplies up and down forces sufficiently to cause the tire to bounce off the road surface. This also explains why vibration can be increased or decreased after striking a bump and why it is only felt at specific speeds. Only changing the speed (i.e., separating the out of balance and rebound force frequencies) or balancing the tires with Balance beads and wheel assembly can completely eliminate this effect.
In essence, if your car's wheels and tires aren't exactly balanced, it won't move smoothly. Furthermore, despite the use of modern rubber compounds and advanced tire production techniques, it's still possible that some unbalance exists in tires.
The tire will have materials that are thicker or lighter in some places than others. The Tire balance beads will shake when it is turning if one side of the wheel is heavier than the other, and this vibration may be considerably more evident at high speeds. Therefore, use Tire beads from
Checkered Flag Tire Balancing Beads to balance your tires and move smoothly on the road.
