What is wheel balancing and why do I need it?
As we all know, road surfaces and daily driving can take their toll on the wear and tear of our vehicles. Problematic pot holes, high curbs and vicious speed bumps will all have an effect on the balance of your wheels.
We need to make sure that we regularly check our wheels are balanced in order to avoid damage to other parts of the car and also to prolong the life of our tyres. By ensuring that the weight is equally distributed around your wheels and that the tyre is rotating evenly, you can also enjoy a smoother and more comfortable drive. If there is an imbalance, you will feel the vibration through the steering wheel which, when travelling at higher speeds, can cause a high level of discomfort.
The way that we address these issues is by adding small balancing weights to the rim of the wheel which help to counter any weight inconsistencies and by ensuring each wheel is fitted in the best position on the car. Our wheel balancer is the top of the range Hunter variant and it will give the most comprehensive analysis. It reproduces the true road experience more comprehensively with a unique diagnostic load roller. We can perform a Road Force® test and balance faster than any traditional balancer and provide a "new car ride". The Road Force® Elite solves wheel vibration problems that traditional wheel balancers can't fix. Our customers come from miles around to get their wheels balanced using our top of the range equipment.
If you have not yet had your wheel balancing checked this year, you have excessive vibration or you have changed the tyres on your car we highly recommend that you look into getting this done, to avoid any further damage to your car which could mean an even more costly bill later on.
