Make Sure Your Rims Stay Unharmed During Mounting and Balancing

Make Sure Your Rims Stay Unharmed During Mounting and Balancing

When you go into an auto parts store, it’s important to know they can take care of your vehicle how you would. At Soundz Good Custom, we’re able to help you with an array of car parts ranging from stereos to wheels. We can also help with the mounting and balancing, and ensure that your rims aren’t scratched in the process.

Why Wheels Get Scratched in the Shop

You spend good money on your wheels. When you take your car into a tire shop, the technician may be untrained or under trained, which may lead to something going wrong. All it takes is one slip of the tool and your wheel can get scratched up. This can cost you a lot of money to get repaired and make your day go from good to bad almost instantly.

One common mistake is what’s known as head drag. When the mounting head guides the tire sidewall over the lip of the wheel, it has to lock closed without touching. However, on some tire sidewalls that are low profile, there is enough force being exerted that the head can flex and it will touch the wheel. If the technician doesn’t notice, you could end up with a long scrape that looks like curb rash.

Another mishap that can happen is a bar may snap if the pry bar accidentally slams into the wheel when it is being used on the mounting head. When this happens, a sizable chip of the paint can often be seen.

These allow us to mount and balance without any risk of scuffs or scratches. We are proud to offer this invaluable equipment and look forward to having our vehicle specialists work with you.

By using this equipment, our technicians aren’t using tools that can’t be controlled. This ensures that a lot of the issues that could otherwise happen are virtually eliminated.
