Are Trailer Wheel/Tire Combos Balanced From Factory


I would like to know if I need to have the wheels and tires balanced, or if they were balanced before they left your facility.


Expert Reply:

This is a very common question. The manufacturers don't balance the wheels/tires at their facility, and we do not have the equipment here to do so. However, in most cases this isn't necessary to balance them because having perfectly balanced tires on a trailer isn't as important as it is on a passenger vehicle because trailers do not have a steer or drive axle.

If you wish to have them balanced locally, you can certainly do so, but it's not an absolute necessity.

I've linked to our series of trailer tire/wheel help articles. The articles contain more information about trailer tires than you can shake a stick at.
