Why Wheel Balancing?


What is

Vibration?

Vibration?

Vibration?

Vibration?


In order to Diagnose a Vibration we must understand some...

Basic Principles


1st cycle

2nd cycle

What is a cycle?

1 second in time

2 cycles per second or 2 Hz


Frequency

1 second in time

1st cycle

2nd cycle

Frequency is 2 CPS or 2 Hz


1 second

Tire Imbalance

With a Frequency of 4 Hz

Imbalance

4 Revolutions = Frequency of 4 CPS/Hz


Amplitude of Force

1 second

6 Hz

Tire Imbalance

If the Frequency increases...

so does the amplitude of force

Imbalance


Reed Tachometer

can identify Frequency

500 250 100 25

"Steering Wheel Shake"

Wobble

Shimmy

Waddle


"Steering Wheel Shake"

5 to 20Hz


What is Static Balance?

Static Balance is when the weight of the wheel and tire assembly is distributed equally around the axis of the wheel rotation.

If static Balance exists the wheel will have no tendency to rotate.

If rotated it rotates with Equal Force


How do we Balance this Wheel?

Heavy Area Rotates to Bottom

.25 oz Imbalance


Is this wheel in static balance?

.25 oz imbalance

.25 oz weight added


If this wheel is in perfect balance at a

speed of 40 mph,

will it remain in balance at all speeds?

.25 oz imbalance

.25 oz weight added


Yes,

the

is the word

“Perfectly”


.86 lbs

.86 lbs

At 20 MPH

.25 ounces of imbalance generates

.86 pounds of force

Imbalance in Tire

Balance Weight Applied


10.5 lbs.

10.5 lbs.

At 70 MPH

.25 ounces of imbalance generates

10.5 pounds of force


At 70 mph the force is 10.53 pounds

It's still in perfect balance!

10.53 lbs.

NOTE: Speed rated Tires Utilize a Nylon Over-lay to prevent tire distortion at high speeds.

10.53 lbs.


Common Problems:

  • Round Off vs. Fine Mode

  • Mounting

  • Clean Mounting Surface

  • Excessive Runout

  • Tolerance stack up


Consider this...

Most Computer Wheel Balancers Round off to the nearest .25 oz.

1 oz. Balance Weight

1.12 oz. Imbalance

Is this a Problem?


1.12 ounces Imbalance

.25 Round Off = .12 Error

1 oz. Balance Weight

1.12 oz. Imbalance

Is this a Problem?


On most cars,

this Slight Imbalance would not be felt, however

"My Car Vibrates at 55 MPH"


Why Does it Vibrate at

One Speed?

RESONANCE


To Understand Resonance,

you must understand an objects

Natural Frequency

Mechanical Objects have there own

"...But I balanced the tires in

the fine mode and...

... it still vibrates at 55 MPH"


If a Tire and Wheel assembly is square,

can it be balanced to Zero?

Yes, balance only refers to force


Are Tires and Wheels

Perfectly Round?


Center Hole

-or-

Lug Circle...

can be off-center as much as .010”


95% of O.E.M wheels are Hub-centric

& *100% through 1 Ton

*(as of 1/1/00)

Mounting Error

Duplicate O.E.M. Mounting

Hub-centric

Are wheels centered by the center hole?

Are wheels centered by the lug nuts?

Lug-centric


Mounting Error

Corvette Wheel

Hub-centric


Tire High Spot

Wheel High Spot

Max assembly radial and lateral runout is .050” measured off the vehicle and .060” on the vehicle

Note: Rule of thumb for passenger cars and light trucks

Would this tire and wheel mismatch

cause a problem?

Dynamic Imbalance


Dynamic Imbalance

During One Revolution


Responder = Steering Wheel

"Shimmy"


Dynamic Imbalance

Is normally not a problem

under 30MPH


Dynamic Imbalance

Under 30MPH Excessive

Lateral Runout of Tire/Wheel

can cause

Low Speed “Waddle”


Look for Bulges

Bulges indicate weak areas and indention's are strong areas


Sidewall Stiffness

“Radial Force Variations”


Sidewall Stiffness

“Radial Force Variations”

Manufacturers Test for Radial Force Variations at the Factory

…and it is not a common problem

On a 36 lb. Tire and Wheel, .006” cone wear can result in 1/2 ounce imbalance

Off center .006” creates more mass on one side


...and don't forget about

Eliminates Weight Chasing
