Truck Alignment & Balancing Service
Truck alignment and balancing is the process of ensuring that the wheels and tires are equal and that they are positioned so that they spin as smoothly as possible when the truck is being driven.
Truck balancing is accomplished by placing each wheel and tire combination on a differential balancer machine and spinning it to determine where iniquities exist and where weights should be added.
Truck alignment machines make the best use of advanced technology to determine where the wheels are in relationship to one another other. These tools will tell the technician where to make adjustments to ensure better wheel tracking.
Wheels & Tires
Wheels and tires, even when manufactured in the same lots, are never exactly the same.
This means that in order for you to get the smoothest ride out of them, you need to periodically have them balanced. Balancing wheels and tires accounts for the manufacturing differences in the wheels and tires as well as correcting for wear and tear as you drive the truck.
When your wheels and tires are out of balance, you will notice vibrations in your truck when you drive as well as excessive road noise.
What’s the difference between truck alignement and balancing?
The balancing process
The balancing process uses machinery designed to mimic regular driving conditions so that inconsistencies can be identified and corrected using weights. These weights counterbalance differences in how weight is distributed across each wheel and tire combination thus making them all equal.
The alignment process
Alignment, on the other hand, refers to how the wheels and tires line up in relation to each other. When your alignment is off, your truck may pull to one side or another and will also increase tire wear. This is because the tires will not roll smoothly across the road surface.
The truck alignment technicians at Ressorts Industriels Inc. / Centre de Camion C.T. CAM Inc. use use equipment to see how your wheels and tires line up in relationship to each other. They then use the adjustments located on your truck for each wheel and line all four wheels up to ensure the smoothest, truest tracking.
