WHY & WHEN IS WHEEL ALIGNMENT REQUIRED?
Wheel alignment is important for the health of your vehicle. A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the direction and angles of the wheels. Correct wheel alignment to the specification required by your vehicle maximizes tyre life and your vehicle will track straight and true when driving along a straight and level road. Incorrect wheel alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear that can affect the handling and safety of your vehicle.
WHAT CAN DAMAGE MY WHEEL ALIGNMENT?
Wheel alignment can be affected by many different things. The most common causes of the alignment being knocked out are:
- Most roads suffer from potholes and speed bumps which can knock your wheel out of alignment.
- Accidentally hitting or mounting a kerb
- Excessive wear to your vehicles suspension or steering components that can alter the alignment.
WHEN SHOULD I GET MY WHEEL ALIGNMENT CHECKED?
It is recommended in order to be safe, to get your wheel alignment checked after any of the above have occurred or after approximately every 10,000 miles.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
Wheel alignment involves measurements often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.
These measurements have standards that a technician uses to get as close as they can to the right measurement.
Different types of vehicles need different “toe” settings depending on the position of the front & rear tyres.
Similarly, incorrect camber settings could cause premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder of your tyres, which is something worth keeping an eye on.
