Could of been a very expensive nightmare
November 6, 2018
I went to Coggin Deland Ford because my 2015 Jeep Wrangler with over size tires because my steering wheel was going back and forth while I was driving sometimes to the point I had to pull off the road. I had them balanced, rotated and aligned at a tire shop and that did not help. I was told that my tires were chopped so they could not be balanced on a normal tire balancer.
Now my tires cost $350 each so I didn't want to buy new tires when these still had a lot of tread left on them. Deland Ford has what's called a "Road Force Wheel Balancer" that takes tread chopping and other tire issues into consideration where a normal wheel balancer does not.
I left the dealership after the work was done and got up to around 45-55 MPH where the steering wheel would start going crazy but it was smooth as can be. Needless to say I was extremely happy saving my tires and a lot of money. So if you have a Jeep or truck with over size tires I would say get this type of balance done "Before" you run into expensive tire issues! And thank you Deland Ford you did a great job and doing the job correctly.
