Wheel Balancing

Wheel balancing helps to ensure that the weight of the wheel is even when it turns. Every time a new tyre is mounted onto an axle, the wheel should be rebalanced to ensure it continues to rotate evenly.

Wheels that are not balanced or are out of balance generally produce a vibration that is uncomfortable to the driver and results in premature wearing of tyres, suspension and steering components.

Wheels can be balanced on a wheel balancing machine available at all Chelsea Autos. The machine rotates the tyre and wheel assembly and automatically calculates weight across the wheel. The balancing machine then highlights the exact position where a balance counter weight should be applied. Counter weights come in different sizes depending on the degree of the imbalance.

Wheel balancing can help to eliminate this vibration and you should notice a smoother ride. Wheel balancing is included with all tyre purchases at Chelsea Autos.
