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.

We recommend wheel alignment every six months or 10,000 km. If you hit a pothole it is best to get your wheel alignment checked immediately.

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:

o    A directional pull on your steering wheel, forcing you to counter-steer

o    Uneven tyre wear

o    Future mechanical problems

 

What can you do about it?


Our qualified alignment technicians 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:

o    Camber angle: the angle at which wheels are tilted in or out in relation to the top of the tyre

o    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

o    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
