    Default Wheel balance

    Hi
    A new set of bridgestone adrenalins RE002 were on by bridgestone select today.
    With their 4 for 3 promotion including wheel alignment for $910.
    Problem is when I get the car, they said they cannot do the balance because no centre
    hole on wheels, told me if I want to balance them, I have to take it to Peugeot.

    So, what should I do? Bring to Peugeot or any other tyre shop who can do the balance without hole ?

    There is a device that can balance the wheels without removing them from the car. And they say it's even better than the usual machine because it helps you detect any wear in the suspension that might be causing vibrations.

    They are good, strobe is triggered by vacuum from a concertina touching the control arm.

    Only a month or so ago Jax at Bowen Hills were able to fit and balance a new set of tyres for the Cyclones on my GTI-6. They are the only tyre shop I could find with the equipment necessary to balance these kinds of blind hub wheels. It would be very interesting if you discover another suitably equipped tyre shop here in Brisbane.

    G'day,
    for all those in Western Sydney, Colliers at Granville can balance wheels without centre holes.
    regards,
