WHAT IS THE ALIGNMENT OF MY RIMS?

WHAT IS THE ALIGNMENT OF MY RIMS?
Basically, the alignment is the process in which the tires of a vehicle are adjusted so that they look towards the front, that is to say, the tires of your car must be parallel to each other and perpendicular to the road. The optimum is to perform this service every 10 thousand kilometers; if not, your steering will tend to go to the side, or it will never return to its original position after turning it, which sooner or later will generate irregular wear.

BALANCING: THE BALANCE BETWEEN YOUR TIRES AND RIMS

The balancing, on the other hand, is a procedure by means of which the weights of a tire and its rim are adjusted to maintain a correct balance between both. With a few words, it is the service in which the weight is evenly distributed between the rims and the wheels. When the balancing is not carried out, there is a danger of losing thousands of kilometers of useful life.

There are two types of balancing: the static and the dynamic. In the first, small weights are placed on the rim to achieve this stability; and in the second, on the other hand, the weight of the tire is taken into account to make the corresponding adjustment. You will know when to balance your tires when the steering wheel of your car starts to vibrate or the latter generates noise when driving at certain speeds.
