"Great service from the guys at Steins. Will definitely be using them again "
"I recently got an interim service and MOT for my car. I was happy with the charges for both and the simplicity of the online booking system. The garage have good flexible arrangements for dropping the car off the night before the service is due. Only slight negative and it wasn't a big issue for me as I was working till 5 o'clock was that I booked the car in using the online booking system for an AM appointment 2-3 weeks prior to the service date. I phoned the garage mid afternoon to ask for an update on my car and was told the MOT passed but it was waiting for a service. I was then told I would get a call when the service was done and the car could be collected. I did not get that call but assumed the car would be ready by 5pm and fortunately it was, although several cars had to be moved to get it out ready for me to drive away."
"Told within an hour what was needed and completed on the day"
"I've been using Stein's for a number of years now, as I trust them to give me high quality work at excellent prices. Craig and his team are knowledgeable, friendly and make sure that you're aware of everything that's happening."
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.
