"Very happy with this local garage. I have had my MOT done there for the past couple of years. I find this garage genuine and they never overcharge or do unnecessary work on my vehicle"
"My car had been recalled by BMW about a month prior to the MOT and they had advised there were no issues with the car so I was curious what a garage would say. The fact the car passed with no advisories, matches with what BMW said and shows me they're an honest garage which is like gold dust! I found the staff really friendly on the both the phone and in person and would highly recommend."

Wheels and tyres, as with any rotating object, need to be balanced in order to reduce vibration. A good example of this is when laundry is loaded into a washing machine unevenly, the drum is not correctly balanced, so vibrates. Similarly, wheel balancing ensures that the weight of the wheel and tyre is even around the axle.
You should always have your wheels balanced whenever you have new tyres fitted. Car tyres which are fitted on wheels that have not been properly balanced will wear very quickly and unevenly. This is due to the inconsistent points of friction between the tyre and the road, creating an effect like rubbing sandpaper on the tyre aggressively. Losing grip this way could be very dangerous and the vibration also makes the car’s ride very uncomfortable, possibly to a point of distraction that might lead to an accident.
Wheels are typically removed from a car before their balance is checked. They are placed in a specially-designed machine and spun to measure the vibration. Small offsetting weights are placed at points on the rim of the wheel based on results from the balancing machine. This is repeated until the machine reports that the wheel is balanced.
