Wheel Balancing and Alignment
Get the most out of your tyres with BestDrive’s professional wheel alignment and wheel balancing services. Plus, your car will be safer on the roads.
It’s important for you to know that wheels that are not balanced cause the steering wheel to vibrate, negatively affecting your handling of the vehicle.
An increase in fuel consumption is also noticeable as unbalanced wheels increase the need for additional energy when driving. Your suspension and steering components, rotating parts and tyres will also experience premature wearing due to unbalanced wheels. If you choose to ignore these warning signs and don’t balance and align your wheels, you’ll be putting your life in danger when driving on the road, not to mention that the worn out parts of your vehicle will also be very expensive to replace in the long run.
Wheel alignment and wheel balancing should be done every 10 000km or once per year.
Wheel alignment and wheel balancing are two different services…
- Wheel balancing enables tyres to spin without causing any vibrations and is required every time tyres are fitted or taken off for repair. During wheel balancing, your wheels will be diagnosed by a special machine and then balanced by affixing weights to the rim.
- Wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the car manufacturer’s specifications. Potholes or bumping a curb are some of the many reasons a car’s wheel alignment may need to be corrected. This procedure reduces tyre wear and ensures that the vehicle drives straight.
BestDrive fitment centres nationwide are able to offer their customers both of these services, ensuring that your wheels are in top condition for the road.
