Happy new year folks!
I'm looking for a reliable mechanic in Leeds as my car has developed a wheel wobble. Not sure if it's just tracking or something else.

Can anyone recommend a reliable mechanic in Leeds? I'm based in Wortley and work in Morley, but can travel anywhere in Leeds easy enough.

What do you mean by wheel wobble? As in your steering wheel is wobbling or one of your actual wheels?

If it's alignment related I'd recommend BRAM Racing in Featherstone.

For other bits and bobs which I can't do myself, I've usually use Morley MOT off Bruntcliffe Lane. Use them for my MOT's as I can drop it off then walk to work. They've always helped me out and loosened bolts etc for free when I've popped in as well.

This afternoon I'll be changing my front shocks which I should of changed a few months ago but kept putting it off also doing a oil change hopefully runs smooth as my mechanic skills set is quite basic!

Was going to say one of them was on its last legs when the Cooksports were fitted. Can't imagine what it's like now 😂

Let me know how you get on

I ended up taking it to Alba Tyres down Gelderd Road as they fitted my last new tyres. Turns out it was just a wheel balancing needed, so £15 and I'm a happy man!
