Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is a crucial and yet often overlooked part of your vehicle’s steering & handling. It is also called tracking and is an important part of your car maintenance. 

Adjusting your wheel alignment involves adjusting the angle of your wheels to ensure they are in the correct position, according to the manufacturer’s specification for your car. Correct alignment improves the health and lifetime of your tyres. It also improves how easily your car holds the road, impacting your fuel consumption and drive ability.

Are you noticing that you have to put more effort into holding the wheel?  If you lift your hands off, the wheel veers or drifts from centre?  If you are noticing this, you may be experiencing problems with your wheel alignment. 

Poor wheel alignment will impact your tyre health, handling of the car and fuel consumption. That’s why regular checks are important.

Our fully trained technicians can carry out a check – free of charge.

Caring for your Tyres

Taking care of your Wheel Alignment

Our friendly trained technicians are here to help. Ask us your questions about your tyres to put your mind at ease. We are just as mindful of the precious cargo you carry in your car as you are. Let’s keep your wheel alignment and tyres in top condition. 

You may notice some of these things: 

  • Uneven or rapid tyre wear
  • Steering wheel being crooked when you are driving straight
  • Noisy steering
  • Pulling to the right or left

If you are noticing that you have to put more effort into holding the steering wheel, or if your vehicle is pulling to one side.  You may also notice your tyres are wearing more on one edge than the other.  

There are a few things that could disrupt your wheel alignment:

  • Sudden impact from hitting something such as a pothole, bumping into a curb, going too fast over a speed bump.
  • An accident.
  • Suspension components, including poor shocks or struts, become worn or loose affecting alignment.
