Static wheel balance - AGCO Automotive Repair Service

An out of round tire is one that has been defectively manufactured in an oval shape. AMG had lots of problems with out of round 16.5" GSA's in the past. The one piece steel wheels had a lot of quality control problems with run-out. Run-out is when the wheel is doesn't run true and wobbles from side to side. There are a lot of bent wheels out there from hard off-roading. There have been a number of problems with the 2 piece runflats coming loose in the wheel causing out of balance problems.

It is important to watch where you are going not just to avoid a flat tire, but because certain hazards can damage your vehicle’s wheels. If you have accidentally hit curbs more than once or driven too fast over speed bumps, it could bend the wheel. The same can be said for driving over potholes in the road. If you make a habit of driving a little too close to parking space bumpers and hitting them with your front wheels, you might notice that those wheels are more out of alignment than the back wheels. This is a good indication of the cause of your wheels being out of balance.

Wheel balance is a topic surrounded by misunderstanding

  • What are the symptoms of an out of balance tire?

    The leading symptom will be vibration when traveling at speed. Normally a shimmy in the steering wheel shows a front tire out of balance. A vibration in the entire vehicle is more likely a rear tire. Vibration from a wheel out of balance will normally come and go with vehicle speed. For instance a vibration at 45 MPH and not at 65 MPH or vice versa. Two clues of improper balance, when looking at the wheel are, no weights on one side or the other or more than one weight on either side. No weight can show static balance only or that the weights have come off. Multiple weights on one side of the wheel shows operator error.
