- Incorrect fitment of the wheels to the hub
- Manufacturing defects in wheels and tyres
- Uneven tread wear, etc.
What are the signs of unbalanced wheels?

- Vibrations in the floorboards or seats (indicates unbalanced rear wheels)
- Increased fuel consumption
- Unusual noises while driving
- Damaged suspension system components, like shock absorbers and struts

Modern vehicles are equipped with ultra-sensitive suspension systems that effectively dampen the shocks caused by obstructions on the road. Issues like occasional juddering and wobbling tyres etc, strongly indicate unbalanced wheels.
How often should wheel balancing be conducted?
Every 10,000 miles or once a year (but it varies, based on the condition of the car and other factors)
After installing new tyres on a vehicle.
It is important that the weight of your tyre and wheel is evenly distributed around the axle. Wheel balancing is performed by adding weights to specific areas around your wheel, ensuring weight is evenly distributed throughout. At an advanced wheel balancing garage Beenham like us, we use the latest balancers to ensure accurate wheel balancing for your wheels and tyres.
