Thanks Joy. Now we can post this link for anyone who wants to know about wheel alignment and balancing. Had noticed quite a few queries on that in recent weeks.
To keep your tyre wear uniform, along with wheel alignment and balancing, also get your wheels rotated. This means the pair of wheels that were in the front will now go to the rear and rear to the front. There are different kinds of rotation patterns.
Proper wheel alignment and balancing is important for extended life of vehicle's wheels and suspension, improved fuel economy, and overall vehicle performance.
If you have been in an accident, even a minor bump or scrape, there is a fair chance that the condition of your wheels will be impacted upon. In this regard, it is best to book an appointment and we will examine your wheels for you. This is an integral service that will ensure you have supreme confidence when driving on the road and when it comes to feeling secure while knowing you are saving money in the long term, wheel alignment and balancing will be of great value.

Well for the first time, I thought of finding a descent wheel alignment and balancing shop in Noida for my Swift LDI. I declined it being done as a part of my regular servicing.
Reading this forum gave me insight about the dreaded "dhaaga" method too and about Sector 16 market in Noida.
So first I went to a CEAT Shoppe there. The shop was in a dilapidated state looking more of a road side repair garage. The staff there was using the thread to align right in front of me for another customer and they were struggling to configure the infrared sensors properly and the customer was getting angry on their incompetence. I swiftly avoided it.
Then I noticed a professional looking shop nearby - Tyre Dynamics. So i went there. After waiting my turn for about 4 cars, my job was swiftly done and looked quite professional and fully automated.
For all 4 stock tires, they charged me Rs. 550 for the few weights added and alignment.
b 36, sector 16,
few pics of work in progress are attached.
