Peugeot 306 Centreless Wheel Balancing and Wheel Alignment Check in Bristol

A couple of days ago we had a client book in for two new tyres for their 1994 Peugeot 306gti. Being front wheel drive and still sitting on its original tyres all round, it was quite surprising that only the fronts needed to be replaced. It was also surprising that it had only covered 21,000 miles!


I followed the best practice of fitting the new tyres to the rear and swapping the rear tyres to the front on agreement with the customer. I advised the customer that the front tyres were showing greater wear on both the outer edges of the tread rather than in the middle or on just the one edge which is indicative of being run underinflated, noting also that the rear tyres were 5 or 6psi below the 31psi required – which we inflated back to the correct pressures. A free check of the wheel alignment showed it to be almost perfectly in the middle of the manufacturer's tolerance for the vehicle.

One of the main reasons the customer chose us to work on their vehicle is that it had centreless wheels. This means that it doesn't have a hole in the middle of the wheel to balance and has to be balanced via a special adaptor! Not many tyre specialists have this adaptor as it's a rare piece of equipment and can cost an arm and a leg, luckily we can help!

If you in need of balancing for you centreless wheels, have an older car needing a tyre inspection or just need help with a puncture, give us a call on 0333 444 5454 or head online here to book an appointment!
