Wheel Alignment refers to the angle at which you wheels sit against the vehicle. There are a number of ways that they can be incorrectly aligned and their alignment can be affected by a number of circumstances.
Some of the common causes of misaligned wheels include sudden minor collisions or heavy impacts such as by hitting a curb, pothole or another vehicle. Poor maintenance can lead to excessive wear on parts such as the suspension springs, this can degrade your wheel alignment.
There are a number of symptoms of misaligned wheels including:
- Uneven or excessive tyre wear.
- Vehicle drifting to a particular side when driving.
- Steering wheel sits at an angle when neutral.
- Excessive vibrating in the steering wheel when driving.
- A squealing noise coming from the tyres when driving.
Why is it important to have your wheels aligned?
Longer lasting tyres
Misaligned wheels can increase tyre wear, which means you’ll need to replace them sooner. You can save yourself time and tyres by checking your alignment regularly, your carbon footprint is reduced where premature tyre disposal is no longer an issue.
More miles for your money
If your wheels are misaligned the engine will have to work harder, which means your vehicle will use more fuel. Your fuel consumption costs over a 12 month period will be greatly reduced.
Misalignment may mean that your vehicle pulls to one side. With total alignment, road shock is absorbed and your vehicle's suspension will give you a comfortable ride. You will find you steering to be far more responsive with easier handling.
When we align your wheels, we’ll also check the suspension system, which enables us to report any potential issues before they become costly or safety related problems.
