While often forgotten about, wheel balancing is a valuable service that is necessary for the consistent performance and efficiency of your car. There are a number of things that can cause a car’s wheels to lose balance, with lost wheel weights caused by sudden impacts or damaged suspension components being among the most common reasons.
Wheel balancing involves matching the combined weight of the wheel and tyre so that it is even on the axle ensuring that it rotates efficiently at high speeds. This is done by counter-balancing the weight bias by placing tiny weights at specific points around the wheel.
George Fegan Tyres & Auto Repairs recommends having your wheels checked or balanced every 10,000 miles or after suffering an impact from a kerb or pothole. We use the latest technology in centres to ensure wheels are balanced as accurately as possible to the nearest gram.
We make sure every new tyre bought at George Fegan Tyres & Auto Repairs is balanced properly before you leave.
