Starting to notice steering wheel vibrations at speeds greater than 50mph? If so, it may be time to schedule a tire balance for your fleet truck or other commercial vehicle.
At Colony Tire, our fleet mechanics in Raleigh, Wilmington, Richmond, Columbia, and beyond use only the latest, most state-of-the-art computer wheel balancers available to get your fleet tires back on track and operating as they should. Our tire care team has experience working with fleets of all types, from farm and forestry equipment to industrial and OTR vehicles.
Wheel unbalancing is a fairly normal occurrence and results when one section of the tire is heavier than the others. Even one ounce of imbalance on a front tire can affect your fleet vehicle’s drivability and fuel efficiency.
A well-balanced set of tires will not only provide you with a noticeably smooth ride — it will also ensure you get the most out of your commercial tires when it comes to long-term cost and performance.
At Colony Tire Fleet, our trained and certified fleet technicians will mount your tires on a balancing machine which spins the wheel to locate the heavier part. We compensate for this extra heaviness by adding a lead weight to the opposite side, helping to return your wheel to optimum condition.
