Wheel alignment is very different to tyre balancing. We carry out both balancing and alignment on vehicles. The tyre balancing is usually done when new tyres are fitted. Once we have fitted the tyres to the rims of the car we run them on balancing machines. These will pick up differences in weight around each tyre. We then weight the tyres with little zinc weights to balance the tyre perfectly. If we did not do this the tyre would cause vibrations and could cause the steering wheel to shudder and the car to wobble. This is bad for the tyre and the driver and can wear the tyre down.

We need to align the wheels again at 5000km and every 10 000 thereafter. If the wheel alignment is outside the manufacturers specifications which can happen quite easily the tyres will wear unevenly and new tyres will be required far more frequently than normal. Our well trained staff can have your tyres fitted and balanced in no time.
