"Cannot fault Bassett Nissan, top class people"
"The full service, I believe, is good value for money as the car is cleaned inside and out as well. Honda Recovery is part of the deal and the car is picked up and returned to my door. What more could you ask for? The face of Bassett Honda as far as I am concerned is Phil. He is the man I have most contact with as it is he who comes to collect the car & he's really pleasant & friendly and I know that he is a good and careful driver."

"Wife recently took my car to sort headlamp bulb on my car. First time to this garage. They were really helpful and not expensive. So booked in this week for mot. Failed on rear brakes needed replacing and all the work was also done by the end of the day. Not expensive either."
"I loved the video that was sent to me with recommendations."
"We have taken our cars here for years. Always honest, reliable and they never do work without asking. Always great advice and service."

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 to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Swansea or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
