What’s the difference between wheel balancing and alignment?

Wheel balancing distributes the weight of a wheel evenly on each axle, which helps to ensure that there’s consistent wearing across the width of the tyre. This is included when purchasing a tyre. A wheel alignment adjusts the angle of the wheels so that they’re set in the proper position.

Here at Halfords, we offer front wheels or four wheel alignment and both services can be booked online. You can find out more about wheel alignment here.
