Can be trusted.
"I told them that I might need a new clutch and flywheel (which would have cost around £1200), but instead they found the problem (which was just a loose heat shield that was rattling), and they fixed it. Excellent price for a full service and air con refresh. They only lose a star on "kept informed during repairs" because I had to ring them up to see what time my car would be available. I will use this company again."
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.
