Process of wheel balance:

While it is possible to balance your wheels yourself, it is much more efficient and precise to take your car to a garage or dealership with professional equipment and machinery. Here, your mechanic will remove the wheels from your car. One-by-one, they will fix them securely to a wheel balancing machine that spins rapidly to gauge where the imbalances are in the wheel. Once the machine is able to read where the weight needs to be distributed, the mechanic will then replace the weights on the inside of the wheel and repeat the process for the remaining wheels to be balanced.
