What Is Tire Balancing & Why Is It Important for My Porsche?

Tire balancing service involves modifying the tire mount to ensure that all tires on your Porsche vehicle are balanced. It prevents one side of your Porsche from taking too much pressure on the other. And it is a wonderful service to promote even tire wear.

When combining tire balancing services with other tire maintenance, such as checking tire pressure and rotating tires, your tires can last years more. Day after day, your Porsche has to trek through rough road conditions, which can cause your tires to become unbalanced. Having a crucial tire balancing service done sooner than later can save you time and money on tires later on. 

Symptoms of Bad Wheel/Tire Balance

  • Excessive wheel vibrations
  • Vibrating steering wheel 
  • Problems with shocks and struts
  • Rough vehicle handling
  • Uneven tire wear
