Here at R-Tec we have the top of the range Hofmann wheel balancers making sure we balance your wheels and tyres to eliminate vibration. Our staff are fully trained to look for incorrectly installed wheels, problem tyres and wheel and tyre run-out. I.E heavy spots on wheels and tyres
When buying new wheels, we use coloured wheel weights to make them as unnoticeable as possible after installation.
Wheel weights are tapped on the edge of the rim or stuck to the wheels of every car/ van in the UK in order to balance the tyres onto the wheels. These weights over time can often come loose and fall off.
The European Commission banned the use of lead wheel weights in 2005 ... and now most European wheels are balanced with zinc wheel weights but there are some unscrupulous tyre garages still using lead weights as they are cheaper than Zinc weights and most consumers will not notice.
