"Yes, I was very pleased with the service and quality of the work"
"I was a little disappointed to have to walk back from the garage as I thought there was a driver for that reason apparently he was out and wouldn't be back for some time. Not normally a problem but I have bad hips so l don't usually walk very much. As for the service I was very impressed with their video of any problems. Luckily they were able to replace my disc brakes pads which were very badly worn something I wasn't aware of that meant I had to wait until late afternoon to get the car. I was told I would get a phone call as it turned out I had a message which l didn't see until late and the number they gave me to call I wasn't able to use from me mobile luckily my sister used her land-line but the call didn't get answered. That was rather annoying. The car was ready and it had been valeted which was a very nice bonus so to recap very pleased with the work done not so pleased with the communication"
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.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Hereford or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
