Wheel Balancing

Wheel Balancing

Whenever we fit a tyre, whether it’s a brand new tyre or one that’s had a puncture repaired, we always rebalance the wheel. Accurate wheel balancing ensures you get a smooth ride and reduces the chances of premature ageing to your tyres, suspension and steering components.

If your wheels are out of balance, you can usually detect this by feeling a vibration in the steering wheel or through your seat, normally at speeds between around 60-70mph. Sometimes this may be caused by a wheel “weight” becoming unstuck and falling off or the wheels being incorrectly balanced when tyres were fitted.

To ensure a safe and comfortable drive, if you experience this problem then call into one of our branches where we will check the balance of your wheels and rebalance any if necessary.
