    Wheel Balance

    Not sure if this is the right section, as its not really a question on a certain model.

    I just been been cleaning my brake calipers ready to paint tomorrow, so I thought while the wheels are off I will give them a good clean,

    While cleaning one of the front wheels a balance wieght came off,

    I heard from ATS that it does not matter if the rear wheels arent balance is this true? if so I should be ok swapping swapping front for back shouldnt I?

    i personally dont think it makes a difference on the rears, ats only charge £6 per wheel though so up to you

    EDIT: just realised you meant fronts, my bad lol, yes it does make a difference but only at about 60mph+

    Stick them on the rear anyway. Good to do this anyway to even tyre use anyway, and see how it goes. With that weight loss i doubt you will notice.


    PS the reason why some places say it does not matter on the rear is because you only feel the wobble through your bum. But on the front you feel it through your hands
