What is wheel balancing?
If your wheels are not balanced it can cause an unpleasant vibration through the steering wheel when you drive at certain speeds. If your wheels are not properly aligned it can cause your car to pull to the left or the right. This means that your car will not ride smoothly at all and makes your journeys significantly more uncomfortable. If you experience either of these symptoms please call us as both will cause much quicker tyre wear as well as pose a potential drive safety issue. If your wheels are unbalanced is means that your tyres are not rotating evenly and this is due to the weight not being evenly distributed around the wheel. With the right testing equipment we can quickly and easily identify where the issue is and quickly add some small weights to balance the wheels and restore a vibration free ride again.
What is wheel alignment?
If your wheels are not aligned as the name suggest your car would no stay in a straight line if you let go of the steering wheel in on a straight level road. Causes may be hitting a pothole, curb as a result, one of both tyres may be pointing inward or outward or the angle of the tyre may be in or out of the vertical position known having either a positive or negative camber. Regardless of the issue we can identify the cause make the necessary adjustments so you can drive safely again without the risk of veering. If your wheels are out of alignment it can make your car a lot harder to steer. Not only will this make for a more stressful ride but it will also pose a safety risk as the likelihood of crashing is increased. You may even have to hold the wheel at an awkward angle just to go straight. If you have proper wheel alignment this won't be an issue. It will make potential hazards easier to avoid as you will be in better control of the vehicle. Well aligned wheels make for a safer car for you and other road users.

If a tyre is not balanced and aligned it will be dragged by the other wheels. This can decrease fuel efficiency by as much as 10%. This is a considerable amount of money that is wasted when you add it up over a period of time. A vehicle with properly aligned and balanced wheels is one that is cheaper and more efficient to run.
