13.6. Balancing of wheels


On the car otbalansirovanny wheels are established. In use the car under the influence of the various reasons balancing of wheels can be broken that is shown in emergence of vibration of a steering wheel.

The imbalance of wheels conducts to the increased wear of details of a steering, tires and car suspension brackets therefore at emergence of an imbalance it is necessary to carry out balancing of wheels anew. Vibration of a steering wheel from an imbalance of wheels is shown in a certain range of speeds and vanishes at decrease or increase of speed. Besides, balancing of wheels is necessary after installation of the new tire and after each repair of the tire.

The static imbalance of a wheel is shown that the weight of separate parts of a wheel concerning an axis has different weight. Thus if a wheel to establish on freely rotating axis, the wheel will turn in such a manner that heavier site of a wheel always will be below. The wheel with a static imbalance at movement of the car can jump up that will result in fast wear of the shock-absorber.

The dynamic imbalance of a wheel is shown only at fast rotation of a wheel. At existence, heavier site of a wheel is located sideways relatively average section of a wheel and at rotation of a wheel leads to its rocking that leads to the accelerated failure of the bearing of a nave and suspension bracket elements.

At disbalance or tire replacement the wheel is necessary отбалансировать.

Maximum weight of a counterbalance: 60 g


Not to use it is more than two counterbalances on internal or outer side of a wheel.

If the full weight of a counterbalance exceeds 100 g, turn the tire on a disk and execute repeated balancing.

Fastening of counterbalances carry out reliably, for an exception of their moving on a rim rim.

For wheels with aluminum disks it is necessary to use special counterbalances.

Do not balance wheels established on the car with an automatic transmission as its damage is possible.
