What do we offer in our car wheel balancing Reading?
Being a reliable wheel balancing garage Reading, we follow comprehensive steps to restore your car’s wheels accurate balance. They are as follows:
- First, we unmount the wheel and place it on our wheel balancing machine.
- The machine rotates the wheel at high speed and takes the necessary readings. It identifies the imbalances and indicates the adjustments that need to be made.
- We conclude by adjusting the weight by placing small counterweights on the wheels to rebalance the wheels per the manufacturer specifications.
Please note: When we fit new tyres, or during seasonal tyre changes, we always check for any imbalances and correct them if necessary. This is a standard practice in our garage to ensure customer safety.
When should you opt for our car wheel balancing?
Experts at our garage recommend opting for wheel balancing checks after driving for 5000 to 6000 miles or twice a year.
Identify the following symptoms of wheel imbalance to opt for timely servicing:
An unbalanced wheel causes steering vibration. It is even worse when you drive at a speed of around 60 to 65 mph.
Uneven tread wear
Uneven weight distribution in a wheel causes faster and uneven tread wear. If you are facing the same, feel free to turn to us at 173 Cardiff Rd, Reading RG1 8HD. Experts at our garage can help you with the necessary adjustments.
Poor fuel economy
Inaccurately balanced wheels cause inaccurate road grip - the car’s engine needs to work harder. This means more fuel is needed, resulting in poor fuel economy.
Poor steering response
The vibration of the steering wheel makes it difficult to drive in a particular direction and lowers the steering responsiveness, jeopardising your on-road driving safety.
Damaged wheel bearings and shock absorbers
Inaccurate weight distribution across the wheels exerts excessive pressure on the suspension system and wheel bearings. This leads to premature wearing of shock absorbers and wheel bearings.
Motorists may also notice a “loose” steering wheel, which negatively impacts car handling and risks the driver's safety.
Unbalanced wheels also prevent your vehicle’s shock absorbers from functioning at their optimum best. Therefore, your rides are bumpier and compromised.
