Just got my Polo's wheel alignment and wheel balancing done from a local shop here in Chandigarh. Got all the 4 tyres also rotated. The tyres are in great shape right now after running around 5k kms and none of the tyres had any worn out areas. The shop guy said the tyres would easily last 40-45k with regular rotation and alignment after every 5k kms.
During wheel balancing 155g of weight was added. Dont really know the reason and the utility behind that. Can someone explain this.
Total money paid - Rs 405 for everything including the tyre rotation.
All four tyres taken out for balancing and rotation
Wheel alignment being done
Had clicked a pic of the odo as it crossed 5k mark..right now it reads 5250kms
On the mileage/FE front i am pretty happy with the Polo's performance. In city driving getting around 17-18kmpl and highways 20-21kmpl with AC on most of the times.
