Why should I check my wheel alignment?

Ever noticed your vehicle is pulling to the left/right on a straight, flat road? For some reason your tyres are wearing unevenly? Then you should go and get your Wheel Alignment checked and possibly adjusted if necessary. If your vehicles wheel are not aligned correctly, then this will cause abnormal wear to your tyres and therefore add extra cost for new tyres.

Always have your vehicles wheel alignment checked when:

  • Your vehicle has hit something e.g a kerb
  • Your tyres are wearing unevenly
  • When having new tyres fitted and you would like to maintain them longer
  • When you replace steering or suspension components e.g track rod ends/suspension arms
  • You notice your vehicle pulling to the left/right on a straight, flat road
  • Your steering wheel remains at an angle when driving in a straight line

This is a simple process and can be done at our garage in Burton-on-Trent.

Why is wheel alignment important?

Incorrect Wheel Alignment can affect the wear of your tyres, the handling of your vehicle and therefore your safety. Wheel alignment is designed to minimise the wear in your tyres and improve their life and performance. If your wheels are aligned correctly, it improves comfort for the driver and passengers, improves fuel economy, improves wear and performance of your tyres and the handling and driving safety of your vehicle.

What is the difference between wheel alignment and wheel balancing?

Wheel alignment and wheel balancing are two completely different processes. Wheel Alignment, sometimes known as tracking is the correct adjustment of the wheel angles specified by your vehicle manufacturer, where as Wheel Balancing allows the wheels to spin without causing a horrible vibration (often resulting in the steering wheel shaking at certain speeds).

How do I find my Tyre Size?

Your tyre size is printed on the side of the tyre (also called the sidewall). Please see the photo below showing the different bits of information we will need to know when pricing up tyres for you.
