Wheel alignment - what is it?
A vehicle’s wheels are important - theydo a lot of hard work to get you where you are going - so they need to be 'aligned' righto do the job. Whell Alignment involves taking specific measurements and making adjustments to the wheels on your car so that they run perfectly parallel to each other and in line with the surface of the road.
Why do wheels need to be aligned?
When one wheel points even just the smallest amount to one side while the others all face straight ahead this creates drag from that wheel. This creates uneven tyre wear and affects both your suspension and your steering and therefore the overall safety of your vehicle. Badly aligned tyres can have a serious effect on your ability to steer your car –including extreme cases where it could be difficult to control your car altogether - this could be seriously dangerous during an emergency situation like having to brake or swerve suddenly to avoid an accident on the road.
What will cause my tyres to go out of alignment?
Things which ‘undo’ your wheel alignment include potholes, rough roads and driving, basic wear and tear, speed bumps or hitting the curb when you park can all affect your wheel alignment.
How do I know when my car needs a wheel alignment?
When your tyres go out of alignment they will pull to one side, which you might feel as a pull on your steering wheel or possibly your car might feel as though it is swerving side to side, your steering wheel could feel out of balance or your tyres start wearing down unevenly. Often the decline of your wheel alignment happens so gradually you don’t even notice the way your car drives has changed - but you will certainly notice the improvement we get your tyres get properly aligned.
