Morris 1100 Balance tyres
When does my Morris 1100 need a tyre balance?
If you feel a vibration in the Morris 1100 steering wheel or throughout the car then it can be due to an imbalance in the wheels and tyres. The vibration is from the tyre skipping across the road or doing a jig because the tyre & wheel isn’t balanced correctly and not rolling as straight as it should. When a Morris 1100’s tyres need a balance, certain parts of the tyre will be in contact with the road more than others and working against the tyre tread, which is why you may also notice uneven tyre wear. Imbalanced tyres can also lead to an increase in fuel consumption so you may notice the Morris 1100’s fuel needle dip down quicker than usual.
In the past, weights made from lead were used to balance the tyres and wheels. Due to the environmental impacts of lead, less toxic weight materials are now being used. These weights can vary in size and shape and get hammered or taped onto the Morris 1100’s wheel. The weight method works well but there can be occasions where the weight gets forced off or just falls off. This doesn’t occur often but when it does another tyre balance will need to be done on the Morris 1100 and new weights fitted.
A tyre balance on a will cost in the tens of dollars up to hundreds depending on how many tyres are being balanced and which Morris 1100 they are fitted to. All going well you would want to allow at least an hour to have 4 tyres balanced and it is recommended to do a tyre balance every one to two years or when needed.
