wrong alloys wheel switch and balancing
So I just got back my Estilo from the 2nd (free) servicing. This time I got them to do wheel rotation and wheel balancing since it has been almost 6 months since I bought the car (the dealer didn't want to do it). Anyway, the 5th wheel which was now rotated to the rear-right turned out to be a slightly different style rim. It is still a MGA alloy model, but not the style of the other 4 rims. Anyway, the dealer has agreed to exchange the 5th alloy (it had never been used prior to this as there was no puncture ever), but I have a question:
Would I need to get wheel balancing done again?

vebmetal - as vikram mentioned - only for the 5th wheel..
btw - its better to get the balancing/alignment done outside in a tyre shop...just my observation bcos
1) u never know whether it was actually done or not
2) in a tyre shop u can see how its done and whether its done correctly...
u just have to watch the screen and see what reading it throws up, what weight our man is putting on the wheel and then chek whether it shows a 0 reading after the weight is put..
3) it will always be cheaper also outside...
i had a silly experience of HONDA showroom guys cool-ly charging me for balancing and when i took delivery, jokers had put the wheels on the wrong side ( i was running on same side tread pattern )...
