Peugeot 504 1978 - Wheels balancing Peugeot 504 1978

Hi All

I am having great difficulties to find a place in London [North] to have my wheels balanced.

All the tires shops I have been to will only balance wheels with a big hole in the middle. My wheels have a small hole. None of the shops have the adapter to balance them.

When buying my new tires, the dealer told me that he would not balance the wheels as he could not.

Would any of you know a tires shop where I could have them balanced?

I enclose some pics of similar wheels.

Thanks Gilles

I had the same trouble with a Peugeot 104 back in the mid 80s. At that time some places had the kit to balance the wheels while they were still on the car.
