I second that, have been aligning my car tyres for last 4 years. They have state of the art equipment and do a good job. Even if there is a waiting it doesn't take more than 30 minutes for you to get a turn. Good guys, good service. Give it a try, they are in adjacent building to Bangalore hospital near south end circle.

Default How often?

Friends having done the Wheel Alignment and Balancing 2 weeks back, got this question.
How often I should do? I remember some one was saying every 5K Kms.

Do we need to do both wheel alignment and balancing or just alignment every 5K Kms?

Please help

Alignment every 5k kms will be fine.

Balance is required only if you had done some rough patch drives.

and if you do rough-patch (aka road) drives more often, get the alignment done earlier than 5k kms.

IIRC, Diwakar is the manager at Tyre Professionals. I got his reference through another friend, who has been using his services for quite some time now.

Today I visited tyre professionals to get this job done for innova details here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...-report-2.html

For present bad highway condition if not driven carefully or happen to miss lot of potholes I suggest strictly get your wheel balanacing / alignment done every 5000km.

Regards,

Ravi.

but there is no laser wheel balancing !! The only laser thing is that a laser is used to indicate exactly where the weights should be fixed.

And abt the alignment, we use 3d wheel aligners which are pretty sophisticated and not the usual 2d equipment used in most places.
Hi,
Do you open on all days? Can I come on Apr 1st or 2nd evening around 5PM?

It depends on the weights that are used.
