Wheel Alignment

IMPORTANCE OF WHEEL ALIGNMENT

A lot of things go into maintaining your vehicle so it performs safely and at its best. Proper wheel alignment is one thing that plays an important role. Wheel alignment affects fuel efficiency, tyre wear, tyre performance, vehicle handling and maneuverability. Wheel alignment is a big factor in a vehicle's steering response.

WHAT IS WHEEL ALIGNMENT

Vehicles rely on precision in order to function safely. Tyres and wheels can easily become misaligned due to anything from road conditions and driving habits to hitting a big bump or getting into a minor accident. Most often, the front wheels are more susceptible to losing proper alignment, though rear wheels can also experience issues with displacement and proper alignment in many of today's vehicles.

The process of alignment varies depending on the vehicle. Passenger cars with a modern four wheel suspension receive a different alignment process when compared to a wishbone suspension. That's why tyre alignment is something that should be performed by licensed service technicians with modern computer alignment capabilities. Our technicians possess the expertise and equipment necessary to properly align tyres to the exact specifications of specific vehicle makes and models.

THE IMPORTANCE OF WHEEL ALIGNMENT

When tyres and wheels are out of alignment, a number of problems can develop within a vehicle's various systems. When alignment is really bad, it's easy to tell as you drive. The vehicle will pull one way or the other. In other words, if you let go of the steering wheel and the vehicle immediately steers to the left or right, there's a good chance that there's an issue with your wheel alignment. Misalignment may also cause vibration that you'll feel especially in the steering wheel.

SImply put, proper wheel alignments allow for safer driving. Wheel alignment will also extend the life of your tyres. Incorrectly aligned wheels are one of the main causes for uneven and/or premature tyre wear. Uneven tread wear will decrease the safe driving life of a tyre, or in a worst case scenario may damage a tyre beyond repair, requiring premature replacement.
