Road Force Balancing in North Lake, WI
North Lake’s Road Force Balancing Experts --Silver Lake Auto and Tire Center
Why It’s Needed
Due to the build of modern vehicles and the demand for a more responsive driving experience, many vehicles are being built with lower tires and a tighter suspension system. Although this has improved the driving experience for many drivers, this has also left vehicles more susceptible to the vibrational forces they can experience on the road. Over time, these forces can cause imbalances and inconsistencies in your wheels and tires that a simple wheel balancing service can’t fix. That’s where road force balancing comes in. This service will be able to take care of the specific inconsistencies that a standard wheel balance service can’t fix.

Our ASE Certified technicians and professionally trained service experts can quickly identify and fix the inconsistencies in your vehicle’s wheels and tires so you can have the smooth and comfortable driving experience you deserve. Know that when you visit Silver Lake Auto, you’ll be working with the best wheel specialists in the county!
What is Road Force Balancing?
Putting it simply, road force balancing is responsible for correcting inconsistencies in your vehicle’s wheels and tires. It does this by focusing on two factors -- run-out and force variation .
Run-Out occurs when elements of the wheel and tire, such as weight, balance, and stiffness, start to stray from their normal conditions. There are two types of run-out to be aware of -- lateral and radial. Lateral Run-Out is inconsistencies that are found at the low-point of a wheel and tire. Radial Run-Out is the same exact thing but is instead found at the high-point of a wheel and tire. As for force variation , that is when a tire has a spot that is much stiffer than the rest of the tire.
Our ASE Certified technicians are able to determine these factors by utilizing a road force balance machine, which will simulate forces that your car would experience on the road. Once our technicians have a better idea of the run-out and force variation, they are then able to implement the best solution for your vehicle. This solution will vary from vehicle-to-vehicle so it's important that you get your vehicle inspected by our team!

If I could give 90 stars to these people I would! They are the most thorough out of the entire country. I am a professional transport person and I've never seen detail work done like this in my entire life. Let alone they actually got it in when they said they would and got it out about a week earlier than they anticipated. They did a deep dive into my 2004 3500 diesel and found a gazillion problems that the dealership didn't when I bought it. They did a detailed report along with amazing pic... Read More
Silver Lake Auto did an excellent job repairing my '84 Blazer. I was concerned they wouldn't work on an older vehicle but they had no issues. They performed a list of repairs quickly!!!
The staff was VERY friendly and professional!!!. I appreciated their main concern was I didn't have to wait long. They made sure to have a courtesy car waiting for me when I showed up for my appointment. The communication and the detail description of what was going on with my vehicle made me feel that I was not being taken advantage of and when all was said and done I feel like I paid a fair price. I will be definitely coming back.
I highly recommend Silver Lake Auto! I had a road trip and took my car in to make sure everything was in great working order. I was pleasantly surprised how clean and nice the office was. I was greeted warmly by Tyler who was very professional and kind during our interactions. Their shuttle driver, Doug, was also very engaging and professional during my trip to and from the shop. I never had such a positive experience with automotive place - especially as a woman. They explained everything in... Read More
I had my vehicle towed here after my check engine light popped on suddenly. The communication was outstanding throughout the process and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They got it done quickly on pretty short notice. I was also impressed with the email of the inspection report. There are pictures and notations for each area they go over. I feel confident in taking my vehicle here and plan to for upcoming services.
I rolled into Silver Lake Auto with a punctured tire at 2:00 in the afternoon. The team was great, as they assured me they could get me back on the road before the end of the business day. They shuttled me back into work and picked me up 2 hours later with the tire patched up. I appreciated the high level of service.
I came in to have a quote on replacing brake pads for my car. They gave me a loaner car to drive home while waiting for the estimate and did a overall inspection on what needs to be replaced and serviced (not just for brake pads) for free. They upfront told me the cost will be higher compare to other places because it comes with warranty. I did not eventually get my brakes replaced here because the cost is higher than I expected but certainly appreciate the great service. I'd come back for ot... Read More
The service I received at silver Lake Auto and Tire was stellar. Tyler was very helpful upon checking me in and making sure they were able to help me in an emergency. They were able to give me a same day service and replace a tire that was damaged. The concierge service provided by Doug was amazing. He is exceptionally kind and thoughtful. He even gave me cookies when returning to the shop to pick up my car!! I was provided a complimentary diagnostic of my car which was eye-opening to see the... Read More
