Wheel balancing is the practice of adjusting wheels to optimise tyre performance and support a safer, more comfortable drive.
Whenever a wheel is removed - whether it's been repaired, rotated or replaced - the experts at First Stop balance the newly fitted wheel to ensure correct adjustment and avoid any irritating or dangerous imbalances.
Your wheels may need balancing if you've hit a kerb or been involved in a collision. Otherwise, we recommend testing the balance of your wheels once a year.
