Does your steering pull to the left or right when driving? Do the tyres have uneven wear? This could mean that the wheels need realigning also known as ‘tracking’. This is a simple process, which may require slight adjustment of front and/or rear suspension components. It is recommended that you have your wheels realigned if, your vehicle has hit something – kerb, pothole etc you notice that your tyres are wearing abnormally or unevenly, when you replace suspension or steering components, if you experience steering or handling problems, if your vehicle pulls or drifts to one side, your steering wheel does not return to centre easily after a turn and when your steering wheel remains at an angle when driving in a straight line, Why is wheel alignment important? Wheel alignment can affect the amount of wear and tear that tyres endure. The normal alignment on most vehicles is designed to minimise wear and tear and maximise driver and passenger comfort. Correct four wheel alignment will reduce wear on your tyres, help increase their life and performance, and improve fuel economy. It will also improve handling and driving safety by reducing steering and stability problems. How are wheels aligned? Correcting wheel alignment involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they turn smoothly and in a straight line.
