When you are driving above a certain speed you might have noticed the wobbly steering which is due to out of balance wheels. It normally happens when you are driving at a high speed like above 80 miles per hour on a highway or on a dual carriageway. Mostly, the wobbling of the steering wheel is related to the unbalanced front wheels of your car. Apart from this, sometimes this problem occurs due to the dampening effect i.e., these vibrations and wobbling of the car are dampened by the weight of the vehicle and thus you may not be able to notice this. Hence, it is needed that you regularly get your vehicle especially the tires checked at a service station or when you go for the tire replacement.

A special machine is used to balance the wheels. The wheels and tires are rotated on the machine which in turn helps to calculate the correct balance which is required for the wheels. If there would be a problem, the technician would balance the wheels if one side is heavier than the other by applying an equal counter-weight on the opposite side of the tires. The tires will rotate asymmetrically when they are imbalanced and it’ll cause wobbles and the speed will be increased due to ride disturbances. If this problem is neglected then it’ll knock out the suspension of your car and will create further problems.
