Why wheel alignment?


Tyres need looking after in order for them to last. One way to care for them is to check your car’s wheel alignment regularly – and not just when you feel a shudder or a shake.

When a wheel is not aligned, other wheels have to work harder to drag the misaligned wheel. This can cause a number of problems, like:

A directional pull on your steering wheel, forcing you to counter-steer.
Uneven tyre wear.
Future mechanical problems.
What can you do about it?

Visit one of our wheel alignment centres, and a qualified alignment technician will make sure that all your wheels are correctly aligned to the road – and to each other.
This is done by checking and perfecting these three wheel alignment angles:

Camber angle: the angle at which wheels are tilted in or out in relation to the top of the tyre.
Toe angle: the angle at which the leading edge of a pair of wheels points towards (“toe-in”) or away from (“toe-out”) each other.
Caster angle: the angle between the pivot line to the upper ball joint and vertical. This angle affects how your steering wheel will return to its position after completing a turn.
