    Default Rear Wheel Balance

    Can anyone tell me what would happen if my rear wheels had a balancing issue, would it be obvious or would i not notice anything?

    Uneven tyre wear and maybe a "shake" through the body of the car at some speeds. If its the front then its felt through the steering wheel.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    cheers Sig, would it be heard? the reason i am asking is one of my rear bearing was droning, replaced it last week and now a lot quieter but there is a quieter noise still there, sounds like a flat spot then i thought maybe a weight has come off.
    Will see if it get any worse over the next few weeks

    You could try swapping the wheels front to back to see if it helps. It could just be a noisy brand of tyres.

    They are normally good tyres. The vecs/signums are very sensitive to balancing, too much or too little weight throws it right off.

    guess for the price of a balance its worth just getting the balance checked, fingers crossed.
