There is no room for error when it comes to motorsports vehicles. One small issue with a vehicle could be the difference between winning and losing. Because of this, it is important to keep the vehicles in their best shape, not only so they continue performing at their best but also for health and safety reasons and to reduce the risk of accidents. During pit stops, you often see vehicles have their tyres changed or petrol refilled. However, one thing that is very important to ensure that is done prior to the pit stop is vehicle alignment or tyre balancing.
A main thing that can affect a car’s performance and safety is vibrations from the wheels. Not only do they contribute to reducing the life of the tyres, but vibrations can also cause further problems down the line with the vehicle’s suspension. A larger effort is also needed to steer a vehicle that isn’t balanced as they tend to veer to one side, meaning the driver will have to constantly adjust it whilst in motion.
Over time, the vibrations can have a negative effect on your tyres, quickly wearing them down. This means that you’ll need to replace them far more often than you should which is very costly – more so than simply having the tyres correctly balanced. It is vital to act when you notice your vehicle steering to one particular direction as continued use could be detrimental.
