About Bubble Balancer
Your car drives fine, but as soon as you hit 40 mph, you start to notice excess vibration in your steering wheel. This could be a sign that your tires need to be balanced, and you can perform this task at home with a bubble balancer. Bubble balancers work similarly to levels with a center bubble that identifies the heavy spots on your tire. To balance your tire, place the tire on the center point of the bubble tire balancer. The bubble moves out of the center circle to identify where you need to place the weights. Confirm this result by rotating the tire. Bubble balancers are able to accommodate different wheel sizes, but many are able to handle hubs from 1.5 to 4 inches in diameter. Bubble balancers are an economical and easy-to-use option, but because they are a manual machine, they may not be as accurate as computerized options. There are many different balancer options available from the large inventory on eBay, so you can find the right size and style to quickly and accurately balance your tires.
