WHEEL BALANCING & WHEEL ALIGNMENT

Recommended Posts

Friends,

 

Need your suggestion for below questions. Kindly help with your valuable suggestions.

 

1. Recently I changed all 4 tyres to MRF ZLX  (185/60 R15 84H) Which is exactly same as the earlier BRIDGESTONE ones. However I did not do WHEEL ALIGNMENT and BALANCING. Is it mandatory to have wheel balancing and wheel alignment done with new set of tyres ?  

2. The reason I did not do WHEEL ALIGNMENT and BALANCING , because I did not feel any discomfort while driving with new set of tyres and  during my last servicing in Sept-2018 , I did WHEEL ALIGNMENT and BALANCING in HARSHA TOYOTA. 

3. Now with that new tyres, I have almost traveled 1500 km  (CITY limit drive and one long trip to Shirdi). Will it cause any damage to the new  tyres as I did not perform WHEEL ALIGNMENT and BALANCING ?  

4. Is there any thumb rule for wheel balancing and alignment (annually or every 5000km etc....) ? I always do this in my annual service.

5. Kindly let me know some good wheel balancing & alignment workshop around GACHHIBOWLI (HYDERABAD) area ? If it is must needed to do HEEL ALIGNMENT and BALANCING after tyre change , I will get it done right now.

6. Normally how much it costs  for WHEEL ALIGNMENT and BALANCING and how much time it will take ?

 

Regards

Yes it's compulsory to do wheel balancing & alignment for new tyres to maintain the tyres.

To avoid the uneven wear & tear of the tyres due to unequal weight distribution.

If the B & A was done very recent before the tyres change, then you may avoid Balancing.

However, I recommend both should be done when tyres are changed.

Also, every 5000 KMS B & A to be done for the safety & life of tyres.

New tyres : Wheel Balancing is a must. 
It is always better to get Alignment and Balancing done. 
 

Sometimes even 5k kilometres is good enough for a uneven tread loss.

You can visit Stunnerz Madhapur.
He is India-Drive member (You can ask for Mr. Harish)

 

Generally, it will cost from 500~800 depending on car.

Thank you Ranger....Yes I will immediately go for both alignment & balancing.

 

Yes I have seen STUNNERZ near to BOTANICAL GARDEN /SPAR (SLN TERMINAL) , as that route was my daily office route (CHIREC SCHOOL to HITECH CITY) before I shifted to Manikonda. I will look for Mr. Harish there.

Usually, during the process of change of tyres, Wheel balancing and alignment is a common procedure followed by every tyre changer at the Garage. Please check with the person where who had got it done. The usually ranges around 500-600 INR for your Etios.

Finally get it done at STUNNERZ BOTANICAL GARDEN ROAD. It was good and they are very professional. Finished both alignment and balancing in around 40 mins and they charged Rs.600. They also rotated the tyres.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
       
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
