Wheel Balancing

Unbalanced wheels will affect the comfort of your ride as they can lead to premature wear of many vehicle components.

Unbalanced wheels may not be noticed by the driver because modern suspension systems are very efficient at dampening out vibration. This is why any vibration felt by the driver could be an indication that one or more of the wheels need balancing.

Formula One Autocentres offers a precision wheel balancing service to ensure your wheels are balanced to match your vehicle’s specification. This procedure provides a more accurate balance that ultimately produces a smoother ride and a more economical tyre performance. To find out more about this service, take a look at our video.

You can add a precision wheel balance upgrade to your tyre order in the basket.

Wheel balancing is not the same as wheel alignment – both are very different services and benefit your tyres and car in different ways.


Wheel Alignment

Wheel misalignment will affect the handling and safety of your vehicle and also lead to uneven tyre wear.
