What is wheel alignment?
Wheel alignment is the process of checking a vehicle’s wheels are set to the correct angle & direction. Different types of vehicles have different optimum wheel positions. It’s crucial that your wheels are aligned to the manufacturer’s exact specifications.
Wheel alignment is a quick & simple task that is essential for good vehicle maintenance. Correctly aligned wheels can prolong the longevity of your tyres by up to 12,000 miles. As they reduce rolling resistance with the road, can even increase your fuel efficiency. Poor alignment causes irregular tyre wear. It also affects the safety & handling of your vehicle.
How can I tell if my wheels need to be aligned?
Even most of your driving is in ideal conditions, you should perform wheel alignment annually. This ensures that you get the most out of your tyres. Do you have high annual mileage or often drive in poor conditions? We recommend getting your alignment tested more frequently.
Some common warning signs that your wheels are misaligned include:
- Uneven wear on your tyres
- Vibration when you’re driving
- An off-centre steering wheel
- Your vehicle pulls to one side, even when you’re on an even surface
