Tyres and Wheel Alignment

Are your tyres putting your life at risk? Incorrectly aligned wheels can cause poor handling and rapid uneven tyre wear, seriously affecting the safety of your vehicle.

We recommend a wheel alignment when fitting new tyres, after accident repairs and replacement of any steering or suspension parts.

Wheel alignment (sometimes called tracking), is the process of ensuring your vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position, as per the car manufacturer’s specifications, so that tyres wear evenly.

Incorrect alignment can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components.

Warning signs that alignment is in need of adjustment include;

  • Irregular tyre wear – on front or rear tyres
  • Heavy steering
  • Vehicle wandering and hard to keep in a straight line
  • Excessive road shock being felt through the steering wheel
  • Vehicle steering wheel not returning to centre

Correct Alignment will;

  • Save excessive uneven and premature tyre wear
  • Save Fuel
  • Enhance cornering and general handling
