  • Q1
    What are the common symptoms of an out-of-balance wheel-tire assembly?
    Loud exhaust noise, soft suspension, cracked windshield
    Uneven and faster tread wear, poor fuel economy, vibration in the steering wheel and/or floorboard
    Low tire pressure, squeaky brakes, clean windshield
    High fuel economy, smooth ride, enhanced steering control
  • Q2
    How often is it advisable to get your wheel-tire assemblies balanced?
    Every oil change appointment
    Every tire rotation and when getting new tires
    Only when you hit a curb or pothole
    Once a year, when the season changes
  • Q3
    How are tires rebalanced in a tire shop?
    By manually adding weights to the tires
    By replacing the entire tire wheel assembly
    By adjusting the tire pressure
    By using a tire balancing machine to measure weight differences and make adjustments
  • Q4
    What is the benefit of having a balanced wheel-tire assembly?
    Improved engine performance, lower tire pressure, enhanced braking
    A smoother ride, less tread wear, better gas mileage, less strain on vehicle parts
    Stronger suspension, louder exhaust noise, optimal tire pressure
    Faster acceleration, increased tire wear, decreased fuel efficiency
  • Q5
    What can cause an imbalance in a wheel-tire assembly?
    Driving on rough roads, using low-grade fuel, accelerating too quickly
    Changing the tire pressure, improper tire rotation, engine overheating
    Everyday wear, losing a wheel weight, hitting a curb or pothole
    Cleaning the tires too often, fuel contamination, tire aging
  • Q6
    What is the purpose of tire balancing?
    To increase tire pressure for better performance
    To ensure weight is evenly distributed around the tire and wheel
    To reduce the size of the tires, making them more aerodynamic
    To eliminate the need for regular tire rotations
  • Q7
    What is a sign that your tires need to be rebalanced?
    Noticing increased fuel efficiency, smoother ride quality
    Seeing visible cracks on the tires, smelling burning rubber
    Experiencing louder engine noise, feeling a drop in acceleration
    Feeling vibration in the steering wheel or floorboards
  • Q8
    How are wheel-tire assemblies balanced to correct weight differences?
    Weights are added and adjusted to address lighter or heavier areas
    Wheels are replaced with heavier or lighter models
    Tires are inflated to different pressures, depending on their weight
    Vehicles are driven at varying speeds to self-balance
  • Q9
    What causes vibration in the steering wheel if a tire is not balanced correctly?
    Suspension damage, uneven tire pressure
    Loose steering wheel connection, engine misalignment
    Fuel line obstruction, brake system issues
    Imbalanced tires can wobble or hop up and down, causing vibration
  • Q10
    What contributes to overall ride comfort according to the text?
    High-performance tires, advanced suspension systems
    Customized paint jobs, sound system upgrades
    Balanced wheel-tire assemblies
    Regular engine tune-ups, frequent tire rotations
  • Q11
    How can you tell if your tires need rebalancing?
    Decreased engine power, smoother acceleration, clearer road noise
    Louder engine sound, slower acceleration, sticky steering wheel
    Improved braking, visual tire shine, faster acceleration
    Vibration in the steering wheel or floorboards, and a thump-thump-thump sound at different speeds
  • Q12
    What does a wheel-tire assembly consist of?
    A wheel and a tire
    Two wheels and a tire
    A tire and an engine
    A steering wheel and a tire
  • Q13
    When is it recommended to rebalance your tires?
    After hitting a speed bump, when changing lanes, cleaning the tires
    Once a year, regardless of driving conditions
    Only when getting an oil change
    When hitting a curb, pothole, getting a flat repaired, or noticing uneven tread wear and vibrations
