Balancing is a critical tyre maintenance service that ensures the weight of a tyre and wheel assembly is evenly distributed around the axle. At Bredbury Tyres, we specialize in providing precise balancing services that enhance your vehicle’s performance, extend tyre life, and improve overall driving comfort. Our state-of-the-art balancing equipment and experienced technicians work together to detect and correct even the slightest imbalances, ensuring a smooth and stable ride.

The Importance of Tyre Balancing

Proper tyre balancing is essential for several reasons:

  • Ride Comfort: Imbalanced tyres can cause vibration in the steering wheel, seat, or floorboard, especially at higher speeds, leading to a less comfortable driving experience.
  • Tyre Longevity: Imbalances can lead to uneven tyre wear, reducing the lifespan of your tyres and necessitating more frequent replacements.
  • Vehicle Performance: Balanced tyres contribute to better handling and stability, enhancing the overall performance and safety of your vehicle.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Tyres that are properly balanced require less energy to turn, potentially improving your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.

Bredbury Tyres’ Balancing Process

Initial Assessment: Our process begins with a thorough inspection of your tyres and wheels to identify signs of wear or damage that could affect the balancing process.

Advanced Balancing Technology: We use high-precision balancing machines that can detect even the smallest imbalances. These machines spin the tyre and wheel assembly to simulate road conditions, accurately identifying where adjustments are needed.

Precision Weight Placement: Once the imbalance is identified, our technicians carefully attach small balancing weights to the wheel. These weights are placed at specific points to counteract the imbalance, ensuring a smooth rotation.

Final Checks and Test Drive: After the balancing weights are applied, we perform a final spin to confirm that the assembly is perfectly balanced. We may also conduct a test drive to ensure that any vibration issues have been resolved and that the vehicle handles smoothly.

When to Have Your Tyres Balanced

It’s recommended to have your tyres balanced:

  • When installing new tyres: New tyres should always be balanced when mounted on your wheels to ensure they start their service life smoothly.
  • Every 5,000 to 6,000 miles: Regular balancing is part of standard tyre maintenance, helping to extend tyre life and maintain performance.
  • After a puncture repair: If a tyre has been removed from the wheel for repair, it should be balanced again when reinstalled.
  • If you notice vibrations: If you experience unusual vibrations while driving, especially at certain speeds, it’s a sign that your tyres may need balancing.
