Wheel Alignment or Wheel Balance?
When do I need a Wheel Alignment?
When do I need a Wheel Balance?
Many people are unaware of the difference between a Wheel Alignment and a Wheel Balance.
A Wheel Alignment will stop your vehicle from pulling to the left or to the right, and will help maximise the life of your tyres by preventing uneven wearing or “scrubbing”.
Our comprehensive Wheel Alignment includes checking for worn suspension components and making sure that your tyre pressures are correct (over or under inflation can also cause excessive tyre wear). We also test drive your vehicle before and after to ensure that the problems have been corrected and we make sure that your steering wheel is straight.
A Wheel Balance is generally indicated if your vehicle shakes or vibrates through the steering or through the vehicle itself at around 80-100k. The addition of weights on the wheels will balance out any uneven weight in the tyre itself. As the tyre wears down over time, the weight changes, necessitating further balancing to maintain a smooth ride.
