What is a Wheel Alignment and why should you care?

It’s when the steering, suspension and wheels that move out of line, the result is uneven tyre wear resulting in premature replacement of tyres which can be a costly expense that may not be budgeted for.

Tyres aren’t cheap and no one really wants to suffer the costs of replacing them, so ensuring they last as long as safely possible is a crucial part of your car maintenance.

There Are many Benefits in Having Your Tyres Properly Aligned

  • Reduced Tyre Wear = Longer Tyre Life = Less Cost
  • Improved Fuel Economy = Less Cost
    • Fuel Economy improves as rolling resistance increases.
  • Improved Handling
    • Having your wheel alignment correctly set can dramatically improve the handling characteristics of your vehicle and improve cornering and braking.

When do you need an Alignment for your vehicle?

Inner and outer edge (or shoulder) wear of the tyre is usually the first costly indicator that your tyres need to be aligned.
A tip for keeping an eye on tyre wear is that when you park your car for the night, turn the wheel full lock, exposing the full face of both front tyres. This allows you to easily check your tyres, picking up early signs of uneven wear which should ring alarm bells that it is time to call your Tyre Team Technician for an alignment.
