Wheel Balancing

A procedure that ensures that the weight of a wheel is distributed evenly so that your car moves smoothly on the road at any speed, with no vibration in the steering wheel or rear seat. Static balancing distributes the weight of the wheel evenly around the axle or spindle and is done with the wheels off the car. Dynamic balancing distributes the weight evenly as the wheel and tire hang down vertically and also balances the brake drum. (This can be done with the wheels on the car.)
