Wheel Balancing

Wheel balance refers to how smoothly an individual wheel rotates around its own centre. Unbalanced wheels can cause other parts of your car to wear down faster - such as shock absorbers, struts and steering. If your wheels are not balanced properly it can affect the overall performance and feel of your car.

You might need a wheel balance when:

  • Your steering wheel or car vibrates at high speed.
  • Your tyres are wearing out unevenly
  • You have new tyres
  • You rotate your tyres
  • Your tyres have had some rough treatment such as potholes or extremely rough roads.

Athena Automatics are fully equipped to balance your wheels - if you have any concerns, don't hesitate to make a booking today.
