Wheel alignment

Tyres markdown March 2014

If your car's wheels are not aligned correctly, they could be causing premature wear on your tyres and suspension components. This will cause problems with your car's handling, performance and the overall safety of the vehicle. Simple things like bumping into a kerb or driving over a pothole can throw your wheels out of alignment. It's important to get this fixed quickly before it leads to larger problems.

How does wheel alignment work?

Wheel alignment describes the measurement, analysis and adjustment of your car's steering and suspension angles to ensure the wheels are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Wheel alignment is often confused with wheel balancing. The two really have nothing to do with each other except that they both affect ride and handling. Our expert technicians have been carefully trained in the practice of wheel alignment and use the latest, state-of-the-art aligning equipment.

The warning signs

If your car's wheels are misaligned, you could notice a slight steering wheel shimmy where the car feels as if it's pulling to one side. Your tyres may squeal when turning and you could experience poor steering control. Even if your car appears to be running well, we recommend having your wheel alignment checked every 10,000km for maximum tyre life.
