I usually go Ban Hooi @ Jalan Kapar, but a bit far, and I'm a bit lazy. 3 out of 5 times will do on-wheel balancing, for some reason my stupid car always off balance (FWD).

Any other place to recommend in Subang, Sunway or USJ? Lazy to go Klang.

Don't bother recommending Kee Hin @ OKR, due to the amount of cars they get, nowadays they sorta do it like fast food, don't do a great job, just wanna get it "done" and get you out of their hair.

Cool what's the pricing like? They do on wheel?
Have not done on wheel for many years dy. I used to do it at Weng Tat (many years ago) as my VR seems to have balancing problem at high speed. Then the center cone thing came and the boss told me to fit them then no need do on wheel already as his off wheel machine is pretty accurate. Fitted on the center cone and have not done on wheel since then......:driver:

Balancing for alloy wheels from RM6 to 10 I think. Depends whether all stick weight or like mine the stick weight behind the spokes and knock in weight for inner side.
Alignment for front is RM30, front and rear should be 50, the last I know. Not sure if inflation have made it go up...heh! heh!:biggrin:

That is insanely cheap. Do they charge for camber or is that free too?

I think you terbalik, Quicksave foreman left but that was quite a long time ago. Weng Tat alignment best was the boss himself, the son also ok and now teaching his foremen. Last was done by his foreman so far also okay....:biggrin:

Tai Soon in Batu Caves is my top favorite for such things.
They have a mobile on-wheel balancer, where they take it to every wheel and achieve perfect wheel balance every time.
For alignment. they use an ancient alignment jig from yesteryears. No Laser systems here. It's a sight to see that giant chunk of 1960s metal in action

Try it out, look for Fei Lou or Popeye
