SERVICE: MOUNTING, BALANCING, SHAVING AND GROOVING
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 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.
TrackSide Performance LLC offers tire shaving. Tire shaving has many advantages. It helps by increasing grip level, reducing tread squirm which can result in blistering, increases tread contact patch as well as reducing rolling mass. We offer bladder and wheel mounted shaving.
101 Tire Shaving – A trained shaver controls the depth and horizontal cutting blade as it travels across the tread surface of a tire. This machine is the equivalent to a lathe.
We can shave to your requests:
Requested Tread Depths
Remove Heel /Toe Wear
Tire Siping is done by specially designed machine which has a rotating blade and a shaft which rotates the tire. The blade cuts the tread surface at nearly a 90 degree angle. These cuts are virtual invisible. The benefits of siping a tire can be heat dissipation, increase ability to self-clean and increased grip level.
Tire grooving has been used for years in Motorsports. Tire grooving is a free hand way of modifying existing tread patterns on a tire. When a tire’s blocks, sipes, void ratio and grooves are properly grooved/modified; the driver should experience an increase in traction, handling and durability.
