Wheel alignment is a check we can carry out to ensure your vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position, as per the car manufacturer’s specifications. Our alignment assessment involves checking the toe in/out, camber and castor angles of all four wheels. Wheel alignment that is out of specification can cause uneven and rapid tyre wear, it can accelerate wear to suspension components and can also ultimately effect the handling and road holding of a vehicle. Misaligned wheels can also have a detrimental effect on your fuel economy, due to a much greater rolling resistance on the road surface making it harder for your vehicle to move along in a straight line this is not only bad for your fuel bills but also impacts on our environment and causes unnecessary pollution. We will always recommend having a four wheel alignment check following steering/suspension repairs or after new tyres are fitted. This is to ensure not only that your vehicle is driving straight but to also get the longest life possible from your tyres.
