"Fantastic service, i was booked in for my first MOT & Service (so no idea what I’m doing or what to expect) they came & collected my car early morning as I had to go into work, so they moved their plans around me. Kept me updated through calls & texts. Really well priced for the bits I had to have done to get my car to pass the MOT. Really friendly man that came & collected my car & dropped it back off, made me aware of what’s been done, gave me all my paperwork. Just a really nice experience. More garages should do the collect & drop off, it makes life SO much easier."

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.
