Wheel balancing and alignment are both essential for a smooth ride and long shelf life of tyres. Even the best brands of tyres will go out of balance eventually. In the event you sense a vibration coming from the wheels, one of the lead adjusting weights might have tumbled off. The vibration may come from the front or rear wheel. Come and visit us at our handy East Tamaki location and ask about our cheap wheel balancing deals.

Out-of-balance tyres will cause a car to vibrate at certain speeds; usually between 50mph and 70mph. Directional Tyres’ expert team can help solve the problem and bring your vehicle back to its normal state.


How it's done:

  • We start by removing your wheels from the car
  • The wheels are spun on our cutting-edge HUNTER balancing machine
  • The wheel and tyre is carefully inspected to point out any damage or faults which could cause problems for balancing 
  • Low points are identified in the wheel and weights are applied to counter any disruption. 


How to tell if your tyres need balancing?

  • Uneven or fast tyre wear
  • Steering wheel vibration while braking 
  • Steering wheel vibration at high speeds


Know when your tyres need rotating 

  • Your tyres will need rotating at least once in the lifespan you use them. This is because while many cars are rear wheel drive, Most of the driving force is put on the front. The front tyres are used for steering and absorb most extreme cornering conditions first which is why they tend to wear out quicker. Rotating the tyres can help increase tyre life and save you money in the long term.
