Wheel Alignment (Tracking)

Wheel alignment
Poor wheel alignment is one of the main reasons for premature tyre wear.

As well as better fuel economy and smoother handling, correct wheel alignment will reduce the wear and tear on your vehicle and extend the life of your tyres. With the wheels correctly aligned, your car will be safer on the road and easier on your pocket.

Signs of incorrect alignment
Wheel alignment should always be checked by an expert. Symptoms of incorrect alignment can be hard to detect but can include your car pulling to one side when you’re driving or irregular wear appearing on your tyres. The irregular wear is caused by the tyres not running correctly relative to the road surface.

What causes incorrect alignment?
Wheel alignment can be affected by hitting the kurb or a large pothole in the road.

If alignment is out, it can cause excessive wear to your tyres and problems with steering or suspension.

 

What’s involved?

 

We carry out wheel alignment using precisely calibrated laser equipment to ensure perfect results everytime.        

 

Tracking refers to the adjustment of the "toe angle" of the front wheels. 

 

The toe angle must be set to the manufacturers specification to achieve the best performance and life from your tyres.
