Wheel alignment

Posted on October 17, 2018

Wheel alignment is a vital part of vehicle maintenance which involves adjusting the angle of the wheels to the specifications set out by the manufacturer.

The purpose of this is to reduce tyre wear and ensure the vehicle is travelling in a straight line, without pulling to one side.

Tyres are your only contact points with the road surface and must be kept in a good condition for your safety and to avoid causing unnecessary wear and tear to your vehicle.

Uneven tyre wear can be caused when the wheel tracking is out of alignment. Accurate wheel alignment, where the wheels and axels are properly aligned, ensures that your car handles at its optimum level.

Incidents like hitting a kerb or driving at speed over a pothole can affect wheel alignment and the handling of the vehicle.

Poorly aligned tyres can affect road holding and decrease the life of your tyres, so it's important to check your wheels regularly.

There are several tell-tale signs to watch out for which will indicate if your vehicle’s wheels are misaligned. These include:

If you are in any doubt about the condition of your vehicle’s tyres, or wheel alignment, you must get them checked immediately.
