Any rotating object has to be balanced in order to reduce vibration and optimise its performance. We're all familiar with the vibration caused by an unevenly loaded washing machine drum; that's what your car tyres have to endure if the wheels have not been properly balanced. As a tyre wears, its balance may change slightly. And when you have new car tyres fitted, you will definitely need to have your wheels balanced.
If your car has a wheel that is out of balance, you will probably notice it most at speed. Often you will find there is a particular speed where this is most noticeable, and you’ll feel it through your steering wheel.
Your garage will usually take the wheel off the car to check its balance. They put the wheel in a machine that spins the it, and measures the vibration. The mechanic adds small weights to the rim of the wheel - the balancing machine tells him where to attach them - and the mechanic repeats the test until the wheel is satisfactorily balanced.
Rover is a dormant British car marque which designed and built vehicles between 1904 and 2005. Originally a bicycle manufacturer, Rover was a respected brand that produced classics like the P4, P5, P6, the SD1 and 75, as well as the Rover Metro. Rover went into administration in 2005, although the brand heritage lives on in Range Rover and MG.
About the Rover Metro
These cars launched in 1990 and were extremely popular. From 1994 to 1998 they were rebranded as the Rover 100, and they’re a common used car choice across the UK. The Metro is fun to drive and well put together, although some drivers have reported problems with rust around the A frame, issues with the alternator and oil leaks.
