Just wanted to check if the one on JC road is the same? Am planning to go there tomorrow. Can Nikhil, or someone, confirm?

I visited Madhus yesterday for tyre replacement and wheel alignment.
Initially called the JC road shop and got a cheaper quote than Langford Rd for the Michelin XM2s.

So, went there and was greeted by Mr. Rocky. Very courteous and nice person. He called up Langford Rd centre for getting the XM2s. When I told him I need to do the alignment as well, he suggested that I could go to Langford Rd for both the fitment and alignment, and he would make the bill here and charge the earlier quoted amount itself! That's like having the cake and eating it too.
He even sent a person to accompany me to the shop as I wasn't familiar with the route from there. Big thumbs up for customer care there, good sir.

Experience at Langford Rd was very positive, as is the norm. Outstanding equipment, courteous and knowledgeable staff and technicians who explain and answer every query patiently. Was able to learn a great deal about the Road-force machine and how it works.

Steering was off-center by 0.1deg. Was corrected in 2 mins. I asked him how he did it and he patiently showed me the tie rod adjustment.

P.S : The note saying "Alignment check within 1000 kms or 15 days". Is it necessary to do alignment that frequently? I thought it was somewhere around every 3000 kms or so.

If you have any issues after alignment and want to re-check the values, you can utilise the service. Done free of cost. Post that it is on a chargeable basis.

Hi Nikhil,

My Nissan Terrano which has done 33,000 kilometres had its wheels balanced and tyres rotated in Bosch in April when it had around 29,500 on the odo.

However there is a slight wobbling at speeds of about 130. I had visited Madhus to get the tyres balanced again (as most probably Bosch had done a shoddy job).
After inspecting the front left tyre on the WB machine, your technician informed me that there is a tyre sealant in it (as I am the second owner of the car, the first owner must have done it), hence the WB is ineffective. He also said that in all likelihood the sealant would be in all four tyres and an ASC needs to remove them completely and then get the balancing done.

Or he suggested I just continue driving for now as in another 10 or 12 thousand kilometres it will be time to replace the tyres anyway.

I read somewhere on this forum that these sealants can damage the rims and unbalanced tyres can lead to suspension issues.

Do I need to be concerned?
