Wheel Alignment

Wheel Alignment

Correct wheel alignment improves road holding and maximises the life of tyres. Aligning the front two wheels resolves alignment issues for most vehicles, but if additional work is needed a quote will be provided.

What is wheel alignment?

Wheel alignment (or 'tracking') refers to the angle and direction at which the tyres are set.

Hitting kerbs or driving at speed through a pothole can result in wheel misalignment. Poorly aligned tyres can affect road holding, increase fuel consumption and decrease the life of your tyres.

How do I know if my wheels need to be aligned?

Watch out for these classic signs of wheel misalignment:

  • Uneven tyre wear
  • Steering wheel pull (the steering wheel pulling to the left or right when driving on an even surface)
 

When the Camber angle is out it can cause long term smooth tyre wear on one side of the affected tyres. This create a "pulling" or "drifting" effect, like a tyre with a radial pull or Caster problem.

 

Feathered Toe angle wear is caused by misalignment. It can be easily felt by running your palm along the tread clockwise or anti-clockwise.
