Tire Balancing

Q: Should I get my tires rebalanced every time I have them rotated?

A: You should get your tires rebalanced if you notice vibrations or if the tires are wearing abnormally. You should also get a tire rebalanced if it has been removed from the rim during repair. But to have the tires rebalanced every 7500 miles probably is not cost effective depending on the price of the tire. If you do not notice any vibrations or abnormal wear I would only recommend getting the tires rebalanced in the middle of their life – often this is at the 30,000 mile interval. And next time you buy a set of tires, look for a tire company that gives free rotations and balancing for the life of the tires.
