Properly balanced wheels help to ensure long tyre life and comfortable vehicle handling. Wheels that are not balanced correctly can cause a vibration which makes the vehicle uncomfortable to drive and can result in premature wear on some of the vehicle components. Our optimising Hoffman wheel balancer allows very precise balancing of wheels
An essential factor for ensuring long tyre life and good vehicle handling is properly aligned wheels. Our high spec Hunter Hawkeye 4 wheel alignment system provides a highly accurate measurement. The system provides a measuremnet of a minimum of 12 angles and compares them to the alignment data specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Also taken into account is wheel rim run-out compensation, which gives accurate readings. The system allows toe adjustments of individual wheels which ensures the steering wheel is set correctly. Further adjustments of caster, camber and other angles can optimize savings and performance.
How do I find my tyre size?
The tyre size is located on the side wall of the tyre.
An example of this would be: 195/65 R15 91H
195 indicates the width of the tyre across the tread in millimetres
65 indicates the height of the side wall as a percentage of the width (aspect ratio)
R indicates the tyre is radial ply (not necessary as all modern tyres are radial ply)
15 is the diameter of the wheel in inches H is the tyre speed rating.
If you’re unsure about the tyre size you require just give us a call and we will be happy to advise you.
