"Very good service, was kept informed when MOT failed due to Play in track rod end. Fitted new and passed. Price was very good I have used several times before and will use again."
nice friendly business
"good service and did a good job"
"This is perhaps my 3rd or 4th MOT done with the guys. It's always a smooth process from the booking to the collection of my car. Strongly recommend !"
"Everything was brilliant. Only improvement could have been a bit more communication during the service. Super impressed, especially as I only booked the evening before!"
It was good
Service was good
"Very disappointed when called as gave me a long list of things from the service that they reckoned I needed, 2 new tyres which quoted £179, which is about £100 more than elsewhere, then a long list then spark plugs which I know I don't need as not long had them done so I actually feel the garage was a rip off and thankfully realised this and didn't get it all done."
Amazing Work Good Price
"Amazing service and amazing rates. Recommended"
"Definitely happy. Easy to book and staff is very friendly. I booked few cars with them and they worked bery well for each car. Thank You :)"
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.
Located in the Thames Valley to the west of London, Reading in Berkshire is not too well-known as one of Britain’s must-visit towns. However, once you get there, you’ll discover a surprising amount of things to see and do. It is sometimes described as being on London’s commuter belt but the influx of daily traffic outweighs the outflow due to the large number of tech companies and international businesses which have made Reading their home.
