Wheel balancing in Tyneside

Hi can anyone recommend a garage that will rebalance my wheels (boost alloys).
I’ve just had new tyres fitted but unfortunately the garage did not have the correct fitting to clamp the wheel on their tyre
machine to allow the wheels to be balanced.
I’m in South Tyneside so somewhere near would be preferred.

Have you considered Dynabeads? You can do these yourself from home. Thumbs Up Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts

Thank you for the replies, tbh I only found out about dynabeads yesterday, but also discovered that the tyre pressures were also way off what they should be! That has been sorted now so I’ll have a drive tomorrow to see if there is a noticeable difference.......I still think I'll have to have the wheels rebalanced though.
I have an appointment on Thursday with a guy who says he can do the job. I will report back anon.......😐
Can dynabeads be put in through the valve stem with the valve out or do you have to break the bead?

Yes, you can install via the valve stem without breaking the bead. Thumbs Up
Just choose tyre size on the site and get the applicator bottle. Thumbs Up

All the steps are on the site. Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts
