Signs Your Vehicle Needs Its Tires Balanced

It’s a good idea to have your tires balanced regularly. Thankfully, it’s easy to spot the warning signs that your car’s due for tire service, giving you plenty of time to book an appointment. Be on the lookout for the following red flags:

  • Steering Wheel Pull: Imbalanced tires can cause the steering wheel to favor one direction while resisting turning in the opposite direction.
  • Vibration: Tires that are out of balance can lead to unexpected vibrations while driving, which are amplified at higher speeds.
  • Signs of Uneven Wear: If you notice that one or two tires are wearing differently from the others, there could be a balancing issue causing the vehicle’s weight to bear down more heavily on one side or wheel.
  • Other Unexpected Performance: Your Porsche can only reach its full potential if its other parts and systems are in working order. If your vehicle’s performance and handling feel off, we’ll be sure to inspect the wheel balance, as well as other potential causes.
