What is wheel balancing?

Any rotating object has to be balanced in order to reduce vibration and optimise its performance. We're all familiar with the vibration caused by an unevenly loaded washing machine drum; that's what your car tyres have to endure if the wheels have not been properly balanced. As a tyre wears, its balance may change slightly. And when you have new car tyres fitted, you will definitely need to have your wheels balanced.

If your car has a wheel that is out of balance, you will probably notice it most at speed. Often you will find there is a particular speed where this is most noticeable, and you’ll feel it through your steering wheel.

Your garage will usually take the wheel off the car to check its balance. They put the wheel in a machine that spins the it, and measures the vibration. The mechanic adds small weights to the rim of the wheel - the balancing machine tells him where to attach them - and the mechanic repeats the test until the wheel is satisfactorily balanced.

About MG

MG is an archetypally British car marque, still manufactured at the historic Longbridge car plant in Birmingham. The history of MG stretches back to its registration in 1924, and the company went on to produce a range of iconic two seater sports cars. The MG Owners Club claims to be the World's largest single marque car club, an indication of the passion MG owners have for their vehicles.

In terms of models, some of the best loved vintage cars still seen on British roads are from the MG stable. These include the distinctive MG Midget with its ‘frog eye’ headlights, clean lines and nimble handling, perfect for the UK’s twisty single carriageway country lanes. The Midget was manufactured between 1961 - 1979, and MG continues to evolve and produce good looking cars. The current range includes the MG3, a practical and fun supermini, and the MG6, a contemporary fastback.

Driving in Portsmouth

This waterfront city in Hampshire is the most densely populated city in the UK. This means that traffic can build at Portsmouth’s rush hour, but that it’s also packed with things to do and see for all ages.

Tourists are drawn to the area for its proximity to the sea, but Portsmouth’s naval history is also a prominent feature with numerous related attractions, such as The Historic Dockyard, the D-Day Museum, the Royal Naval Museum, and the Royal Marines Museum. A number of iconic ships adorn the dockyard such as the HMS Victory, the HMS Warrior and Henry VIII’s Tudor warship the Mary Rose. For those who can handle heights, there are marvellous views from the observation deck of the Spinnaker Tower, a sweep of glass and steel shaped like a sail, which lays claim to being Britain's tallest tower outside London.

Portsmouth has a prestigious literary history and is the birthplace of many celebrated authors from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to Michelle Magorian, H.G. Wells to Neil Gaiman and most notably, Charles Dickens. The modest house in Old Commercial Road was his former abode and has been restyled to resemble the original Dickens family home.
