It’s no secret, by taking care of your car you’re likely to avoid accidents on the road, which in turn could save you from the hassle of dealing with a New Jersey car insurance claim. One way to balance out the situation is by doing just that, and balancing your tires!
Balancing means compensating for both the weight of the tire and wheel after the tire is mounted. A wheel is out of balance when one area is heavier or lighter than the rest. This can cause irregular treadwear and vibration, and increase the stress on the front-end parts, which may cause them to wear prematurely.
You should have your wheels balanced whenever a tire is replaced, when a balance weight is moved or removed, and whenever you purchase new tires. Of course, at the first sign of vibration or irregular treadwear, your car should be thoroughly checked for wheel balance and alignment, and for worn or broken mechanical parts.
Having balanced wheels means increased vehicle safety and stability. Your New Jersey car insurance policy will thank you later for it! For more information about your New Jersey car insurance policy, or vehicle safety tips call us today at (732) 680-4444!
