Wheel Balancing vs. Wheel Alignment: What's the Difference?

Mechanic aligning wheel


Taking care of your vehicle’s wheels is vital to both the performance and safety of your vehicle. When it comes to wheel care, two routine and important tire services include wheel alignment and balancing. While these maintenance tasks are sometimes thought of interchangeably, they are in fact, different services. It’s important to understand the differences between Honda wheel balancing vs. Honda wheel alignment before scheduling an appointment at your local Raynham service center. Silko Honda brakes down both services below!

What is Wheel Balancing Service?

Wheels can lose their balance over time, which is why it’s important to include wheel balancing in your regular maintenance tasks. When your wheels become unbalanced, it can lead to your steering wheel shaking or vibrating. Unbalanced tires develop varying tire wear because one part of the tire is heavier than the others.

Having your wheels balanced not only ensures your vehicle provides a smooth ride, but it also improves traction and control as well. It also extends the life of your tires as it allows them to wear evenly. It’s recommended that you have your wheels balanced when you get your tires rotated, which you should have done every 5,000 to 6,0000 miles or every 6 months.

What is Wheel Alignment Service?

Unlike Honda wheel balancing, Honda wheel alignment doesn’t need to be part of your routine maintenance. Only performed on an as-needed basis, a wheel alignment ensures that your tires are perpendicular to the road and parallel to each other. Wheels that are out of alignment can result in excessive, uneven tread, unnecessary wear and tear on your tires, and steering issues including vehicle pulling. With these complications, it’s important to have your wheel alignment checked once you realize the problem.

Wheel Alignment and Balancing Costs

If you’re asking, “How much does a Honda wheel balancing cost?,” you’ll be pleased to know that price of this service generally sits between $40-$75. But, how much does a Honda wheel alignment cost? Typically, this service will run anywhere from $65 to $100. However, you may have to double that if you’re having both sets of tires aligned.
