Are you looking for Wheel Balancing for your vehicle?
The weight of the wheel and tyre assemblies need to be properly balanced for maximum driving safety and handling comfort. Even minor manufacturing imbalances can affect weight distribution and reduce handling efficiency and control. It gets worse over time as your car wheels run through potholes, over bumps, etc. on the road. As a result, you will most likely detect poor fuel economy, uneven tyre tread wear and vibrations in the steering wheel, floorboard or seats after some time.
At our garage for wheel balancing Cheltenham, Leckhampton Tyres and MOT Ltd., we use advanced wheel balancing machines that make it easier for us to precisely detect and correct any unbalance in your vehicle’s wheels. We also conduct this check as standard practice during every tyre fitting session.

Tell-tale signs of unbalanced wheels
A vibrating steering wheel, floorboards or cabin
Odd vibrations in the steering wheel are an early symptom of unbalanced wheels. It increases over time, with the entire cabin, floorboard and seats experiencing intense vibrations.
When your Car is Difficult to Steer
Wheel imbalance makes steering more difficult and increases the response time, which reduces the control of your vehicle.

Unbalanced wheels put a lot of stress on the springs, bearings and components of the wheel assembly. Hence, these parts can get damaged faster, often resulting in a much more expensive repair bill.

The tread wear can be much quicker than you expect and the risk of a flat tyre or a blowout gets higher. Regularly inspecting the status of your car’s tyres can prevent these issues, and also safe you good money as you can avoid the expenses caused by premature tyre wear.
