Always spot on
"Always happy with the service and quality of work from Ingleby Autos. I’ve taken my cars there for years and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Also as a female I like that they don’t treat you as if you have no idea what they’re talking about."
Ashington Service Centre
"Everything was done with politeness, you felt they had known you for years which gave you a very comfortable and relaxed feeling. They were professional and efficient which means I wouldn't hesitate to go back for any other work to be done on my car. Thanks lads & lassies."
Friendly and helpful
"The staff were friendly and helpful. I cannot comment on the standard of the workmanship, but time will tell. The set up seemed very professional and well organised. I did book this garage online as it offered pick up and drop off of the car, as it turned out this, and my chosen appointment time, were not available. In future I’d bear this in mind in choosing a provider off this site as the convenience is important to me."

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.
Driving in the North East
With its vibrant major cities of Newcastle, Durham and Sunderland, the North East also has some of the most breathtaking drives in the country. The Northumberland coast is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, harbouring destinations such as the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and Dunstanburgh Castle. The easternmost parts of the North East are also among the driest in the UK, although snow and ice can frequently cause traffic disruption in the winter months.
