    Smile Wheel Vibration

    After noticing what looked like a nail in one of my front Tyres today I took the car into Kwiki fit ( only place that was open ) and asked them to check and see if the tyre could be repaired the guy took off the wheel and luckily it was just a short screw that hadn't damaged the tyre , I mentioned to him there was a vibration through the steering at 70+ and asked him to check the wheels were balanced properly and he took one look at the weight and said since there was only one on each wheel they were probably wrong , so 20 mins later all the wheels were re-balanced and tyres checked and the steering is now vibration free.
    Since I have 19" snowies I was worried it was something more serious like a small crack but thank fully it was nothing major and it only cost me £25 instead of £150+ for a new Tyre so I'm a happy man today

    Typical Kwik Fit. Should have only needed the front wheels balancing, not all.

    I asked them to take off the back wheels to check the tyres were in good condition so was as well getting them balanced again anyway.

    But it makes sense to have all 4 balanced.
