    Wheel balance on Cyclones? I had great service from Ken Long Tyres when I got my Cyclones balanced. 138 Stanley Street, West Melbourne VIC 3003

    Apparently bob jane at Elizabeth St have the adapter without centre holes.
    Tyrepower Hawthorn (near cnr Power St) also have one. I go to Tyrepower out of preference.

    Avoid Bob Jane in Prahran - paid for a balance there but it was rubbish (and service was poor too). Later went to Edgar's Tyrepower in Notting Hill and they got it sorted for me. They said the job Bob Jane did was way out on each wheel, and one of them didn't have any weights at all. Given it's a franchise the other Bob Janes might be ok, but Prahran is definitely a dud.
