Wheel Balancing in Santa Cruz, CA

Experts in Wheel Balancing

Wheel balancing is often confused with wheel alignment, but both are important in ensuring your vehicle rides smoothly. Wheel balancing allows your tires to spin without vibration, something that often comes from irregularities in manufacturing. Wheel balancing minimizes these vibrations so that you won’t feel them in the steering wheel, seat or floorboard as you drive.

When you need wheel balancing, look no further than Doc Auto in Santa Cruz. Our expert team will complete the task accurately, efficiently and affordably. Being family owned and operated, we’ll give your vehicle the same precise care in wheel balancing that we give to our own family.

The Benefits of Wheel Balancing

Here at Doc Auto in Santa Cruz, we recommend your tires and wheels be balanced when first installed, as well as every 10,000 to 12,000 miles as a maintenance measure. Unbalanced tires will lead to vibrations and uneven tire wear, and eventually to dangerous driving conditions. Regular wheel balancing service helps to extend the life of your tires, as well as improve overall handling and performance.

Doc Auto doesn’t do just wheel balancing. We also work to prevent any future damage or breakdowns we can see coming. We want you to be fully aware of your vehicle’s condition, as we work with you to keep it on the road as long as possible. We’ll let you know what needs attention immediately and what can wait.
