Our wheel alignment (or tracking as its also known as) service is designed to make your vehicle safer for you and your passengers. Correct alignment ensures your car drives and handles as per manufacturers specifications for your safety and reduces the pressure on your tyres. Many benefits include better fuel consumption, less wear on your tyres, and a better handling car! When suspension components are replaced, the alignment of the car will change and you must rectify this to ensure the safety of the vehicle. Incorrect alignment can result in the car pulling one directing when accelerating, pulling the opposite direction when braking, or simply make the car feel unpredictable which can be extremely dangerous.
How Would I know Something Was Wrong?
If you notice steering difficulties, handling issues, uneven tyre wear, these are signs that your suspension may need to be looked at. Other symptoms might include your steering wheel being off-centre when driving straight or a vibration while driving.
How Long does the service take?
Wheel alignment can be done in a short space of time and in most cases 1-2 hours. This is providing your suspension & all its components are in good condition, you cannot correctly align a car with worn suspension or tyres as this all effects the results. Our technicians will check your tyre condition, tyre pressure, and your main suspension components which effect alignment, if all in good condition then they will go ahead and attempt the tracking. Otherwise you will be notified of the issues, advised the best course of action, and asked how you would like to proceed.
How Often Should I Have My Wheels Checked?
In normal conditions we recommend getting your wheel geometry checked once a year, other reasons include new tyres fitted, you hit a bump, handling has diminished, tyres wearing unevenly.
