Why tyre maintenance is a real balancing act
Posted by: Cal on 18/06/2013
Did you know that the world record for the longest time someone has balanced a tyre on their teeth is 31 seconds?
Well now you do!
American Frank Simon made his country proud in 2009 when he set the current Guinness World Record on the set of the Zheng Da Zong Yi variety show in Beijing, China.
And while this is a perfectly useless piece of information, the moral of the tale is that tyre balancing isn't something to snap your teeth at.
Indeed, it is an essential part of good tyre maintenance, particularly when replacing old tyres with new ones.
Yet don't worry, as you needn't start practising your own balancing act - there are professionals who can do it for you.
