Tire Mounting

Tire Mounting

TrackSide Performance LLC uses the proper tools and procedures to avoid damaging the wheel and tire. With each tire mounted, we ensure the correct tire is matched to the correct wheel and we make sure both are damage free.

Our staff is trained in bead locks, liners, tubes, reverse mount  and motorsports wheel sensors.

When mounting tires, we follow standard safety rules found in the tire manufacturer’s operating manual.

Tire Balancing

Tire Balancing

TrackSide Performance LLC uses the proper tools and procedures to avoid damaging the wheel and tire.

Tire balance, also referred to as tire unbalance or imbalance, describes the distribution of mass within an automobile tire or the wheel to which it is attached. When the tire rotates, asymmetries of mass cause the wheel to wobble, which can cause ride disturbances, usually vertical and lateral vibrations. It can also result in a wobbling of the steering wheel. The ride disturbance, due to unbalance, usually increases with speed. Vehicle suspensions can become excited by tire unbalance forces when the speed of the wheel reaches a point that its rotating frequency equals the suspension’s resonant frequency.

The following balancing options are available. Static, Dynamic, Smartweight™, Standard, Mixed Weights, Adhesive Weights and Split-Spoke.
