Wheel balancing

Wheel balancing

If your car feels like it’s got the shakes, you may well have one or more unbalanced wheels. This can cause uneven tread wear, flat spots in your tyres and even permanent vibration.

Luckily, getting your wheels balanced can easily fix it. Not only will it reduce driver fatigue and motion sickness, but it can also help increase fuel economy and make your tyres, steering and suspension systems last much longer.

You should always get your wheels balanced when:

  • You notice unusual vibrations in your steering wheel.
  • Your car shakes at certain speeds.
  • New tyres have recently been fitted.
  • A tyre has been removed from its rim.
  • You notice any irregular tyre wear.
