Road force balancing is a tire installation method that measures the roundness of the tire and the rim then matches the high and low spots of each component in a way that creates a more round assembly. This rounder assembly is then balanced with extreme accuracy which creates a very smooth riding tire assembly. Because it is a labor intensive process and requires specialized equipment many tire installers choose to ignore road force and instead balance a tire that is less than round. Road force corrected tires ride smoother and last longer than uncorrected tires. This is how tires are installed when cars are brand new and here at Pete’s Garage we continue this practice because we believe in following Original Equipment Manufacturer best practices.
