Since 1979, Unique Engineering & Repair has serviced the automotive repair, tire, and wheel needs of customers throughout Safety Harbor and Tampa Bay. We offer a full line of competitively priced tires from the industry's leading brands. We are proud to have kept Tampa Bay families rolling along safely since 1979.
Tire rotation can preserve balanced handling and traction of the tires and even out tire wear. It is an advantage when all four tires wear together because as wear reduces a tire's tread depth, it allows tires to respond to the driver's input more quickly, maintains the handling, and it helps increase a tire's cornering traction.
Wheel Balancing
So...what REALLY is wheel balancing? When a wheel is unbalanced, there is an unequal distribution of weight around the rim of the wheel and tire assembly. The tire may seem round and true when rotated slowly, but on the road centrifugal force acts on the heaviest part of the tire, making it wobble or vibrate (like an out-of-balance ceiling fan). This can cause flat spots on the tire treads and is damaging to ball joints, bearings, steering, and shock absorbers.
