We use the new top-of-the-range models of balancing machines, the Corghi EM8340 and EM7280 wheel balancers.
Commands are given using a control panel with integrated LCD monitor which displays high resolution graphics.
These balancers have an accuracy of 1 gram to ensure you get no vibrations, especially when driving at high speeds.
Our highly trained technicians will not only balance your wheels they will perform an extensive safety check.
We check your rims for buckles which if goes unnoticed can cause extensive vibration, we also inspect your existing tyres to ensure they are not stepped or distorted.
If you are getting vibration from your steering wheel below 70 mph this is normally caused by front wheels being out of balance, if the vibration is over 70 mph this can be the result of rear wheels being out of balance.
With any vibration problem we always recommend to balance all four wheels to ensure problem is resolved.
We stock a large range of balance weights to suit all wheels, we can fit adhesive weights to the inside of alloy wheels so no unsightly knock on weights are on view. We keep silver and gloss black adhesive weights in stock.
To guarantee outstanding precision, the EM8340 and EM7280 has intelligent software that renders the machine immune from outside disturbances such as accidental knocks or vibrations during balancing operations. These machines are calibrated on a regular basis, to ensure 100% accurate balancing.
MOTORCYCLE WHEEL BALANCING
We use the Abba super pro wheel balancer for the wheel balancing which has an accuracy of 1 gram and is used by many race circuit garages and main dealerships so you get an accurate balance every time.
We can balance all motorcycle wheels front and rear. We have a staged adapter to suit all common sizes of wheel bearing.
We also have a single sided adapter for balancing single sided swing arm model wheels that do not have the bearings in the rear wheel. For example VFR's, Ducati's, BMW's, Triumphs...
With four additional bearings on the wheel balancer, this allows almost friction free, very accurate balancing.
We use a variety of adhesive weights, we have choice of silver and gloss black weights which blend in well with darker rims.
BUCKLED,CRACKED & DENTED ALLOYS
We also offer buckle repairs and weld repairs for lightly damaged and cracked alloys.
We do not use fillers which are an inferior repair, all wheel are welded then machined by experienced engineers.
We always add structural strength back into the wheel by welding. A full inspection of the wheel will be completed on site, which will allow a detailed quotation to be provided. All work is fully guaranteed.Read More

"I found Addison's whilst looking around on the internet for wheel alignment. I've just got back from the garage and I could not be happier with the service. I arrived at the garage without an appointment and was quickly on the wheel alignment machine, the machine itself was first class and staff very friendly. I was even allowed to watch as the work was carried out. The adjustments were carried out, front and rear wheels were out of alignment and this was promptly sorted and at a very cheap price. I would recommend Addison's to anyone - the guys treat your prized possession with respect and carry out high quality work with great prices."
"Great service from Jason and the team. Always quick to serve you, always give quality advice and recommendations. They care for your wheels and they have never let me down for any car or motorcycle tyre. They set the benchmark for all others."
"My husband replaced the budget tyres on his car and said the tracking and balancing alone made the car feel more responsive than ever. The competitive prices and above all great personal service make it a natural choice for us to always go back to Addison's"
"I have always used Addison tyres and so do most of the people at work. They are always competitive on price and are very efficient, they contacted me via text when my tyres were available, I called in and they were fitted in no time. I took advantage of their free high tech wheel alignment check, again the service was quick and friendly. Great business and staff, highly recommended - it only takes a phone call to check their prices."
Why go elsewhere? I was caught out on sunday with a puncture in my tyre and quoted £65 for a budget tyre at Kwik fit Dudley. I had previously gone to Addison's for motorbike and car tyres and thought I would wait until the next day to go to them. When I called the quote was £42.99 all in. The prices are great and service is fantastic. The staff are always friendly, polite and helpful. You don't feel like they are going to rip you off like when you go to other garages."
