Take it to Madhus as everyone have suggested. Your problem will be solved. My colleague's i20 had serious wobbling issues at speeds above 90 kmph. He showed it to Hyundai guys at Calicut who did nothing but made him to believe that its a normal behavior. I noticed this issue when I once drove his car and suggested him to visit Madhus. The issue was fixed after the road force balancing.

Default Re: Wheel Alignment / Balance : Tyre Empire (HSR Layout, Bangalore)

Good service at Tyre Empire yesterday.
I awoke in the morning to find my Yeti had a completely deflated left rear tyre on account of a puncture. The rear right tyre was also looking a little green about the gills, and has been for sometime, with a suspected puncture.
I thought I would trouble myself to change it but didn't. Went to work in an Auto.
Came back midday and went to Tyre Empire, called out one of those boys there with an Air Compressor. Filled up the punctured tyre, drove back there and gave the car a full treatment of puncture repair, tyre balancing, wheel alignment, 4 wheel rotation etc.
It seems that two of my tyres had nasty screws sitting in them which was causing air leakage.
So we completely and solidly repaired both and got all the other normal jobs done too.
Also bought one of those Air Compressors for the car. Nice useful product, available at Rs 2500/- off the shelf.
Total spent on the puncture repair, alignment, balancing and rotation was Rs 1900/-
Money well spent all in all.
The car has also just been serviced a week ago so now, with the tyres attended to, it feels lovely to drive indeed.
It is a pleasure to have a good quality tyre service company sitting about practically on one's doorstep. Prevents the pain of driving through evil traffic to get to Madhu's etc.

Had a not-so-good experience yday with them.
Took wife's New Honda City there for alignment and wheel balancing. Reached there at around 10:45 am. There were a couple of cars being attended to, and 2 cars waiting outside. The SA asked me to wait for approx. 45 mins.. After a few minutes of wait, he prepared the job card with a time stamp of 11:10.
Again after about 25 minutes, as I was reading news on my phone, I started seeing new cars getting attended to, and asked one of the persons in uniform about the work that needed to be done on mine. He just wouldn't listen, and then I checked the time stamp on the other cars, all of them had time stamps later than the one on mine.

I lost it, ran upstairs and asked them what the heck was going on. Was about to ride off, when the head of the station came down with me, talked to them and that got them to start work on mine.

Also, this time, they were in a hurry to finish it off, no proper tyre rotation was done, saying that there was only 20% left (I had done the same in my accent 2 years ago).

The only saving grace was that the manager was kind enough to listen and made some effort to do damage control. After the alignment as well, I notice that the steering was not aligned properly. I am not sure if I would visit them again.

The place is quite crowded during weekends and holidays. There is a new shop called "Tyre Kingdom" that has opened up in HSR 7th sector. One of my office colleagues had recommended this place to me. I am planning to visit them next time.

Default Re: Wheel Alignment / Balance : Tyre Empire (HSR Layout, Bangalore)

I had been there recently. 1st for a puncture fix. there were 2 options permanent and temporary. Opted for temp as my tyre almost reach end of life. Cost was 190 which i feel as a bit higher. I got it done for 100 from a petrol bunk in old airport road. second i went there for an alignment. Guys were professional to show me that the tyres need replacement. There was a bulge and alignment balancing will not solve the issue. Inquired yokohama Earth ones 195 section tyre price. Per tyre cost was 5900. Is this one a higher side??

Very impressed with the service here. I had taken my Kodiaq for Balance, Alignment & Rotation. The place seems very professionally run. This has been the only time that I have seen a tyre service center wash my wheels and then do the balancing.

Very satisfied with the service.

I would recommend this place to anyone in the vicinity of HSR/Bellandur/Sarjapur.

When some experience is overtly good i am always a bit skeptical, since there is no such thing as free lunch. Even i had gone to same but in jail road ( since my tyre were not too clean i didnt bother)

Did they also wash the new tyres? ( kindly check if it hardens or not after couple thousand km)

If not enjoy your experience and forget my comment.

I presume, he meant the tyres were dunked in water to check for puncture.
That said these guys do put a bit of effort in cleaning the tyres (removing stones embedded in groves), etc.

They also make it a point to walk you through the process as they are doing the balancing.

No free lunches here, wheel alignment and balancing costs me about 1.5K for my SX4, so this is not cheap (my thoughts).

Every service is rated by the customer at the time of the final billing on the first floor where the guy who worked on your car is not present.

They dunked my tyres too but i did not ask them to check for any puncture or anything, this was after the balancing.

Regarding the cost I too felt it was on the higher side.

Default Wheel Balancing and Alignment @ Tyre Empire HSR Layout

I had visited Tyre Empire HSR layout sector 1 today noon for getting the Wheel Balancing and Alignment done for a Skoda Laura 2.0tdi L&K fitted with Accelera Forceum Rubbers and stock alloys.

Facilities Available:
They hava a complete tyre care facility available. All the prominent brands tyres are available. If not in stock will be brought on demand, Hunter Hawk Wheel alignment and Hunter Road Force Wheel Balancing, Wheel Fitment, puncture repairs, alloy wheels, wiper blades, engine lubricants, etc.

Pros:
1.Very swift and professional approach to the customer.
2.Delivered the vehicle before the promised time.
3.Quite accomodating to request made by the customer
4.Decent parking space available if you need to wait.
5. Professional workmanship.
6. State of art modernized equipment.
7. Well trained staff.

What I don't like:
1.The alignment staff didn't perform a test drive post the procedure to check for any faults in the wheels and tyres.
2. Place could have been better organized and more transparent in view to the customer.
3. Minor faults with the alignment rig due to worn out plates.

Speciality:
Latest equipment in tyre care with trained technicians.
