What is wheel alignment?
Wheel alignment (or 'tracking') refers to the angle and direction at which the tyres are set.
Hitting kerbs or driving at speed through a pothole can result in wheel misalignment. Poorly aligned tyres can affect road holding, increase fuel consumption and decrease the life of your tyres.
How do I know if my wheels need to be aligned?
Watch out for these classic signs of wheel misalignment:
- Uneven tyre wear
- Steering wheel pull (the steering wheel pulling to the left or right when driving on an even surface)
How can I get my wheels aligned?
If you spot the signs of misaligned wheels, book a wheel alignment online and our specialist ATA-trained technicians will correct the problem.
Our web booking is for the alignment of the front two wheels, which is sufficient to resolve the majority of misalignment problems. Not all cars
can have the rear wheels adjusted so any additional requirement for all four wheels to be adjusted needs to be discussed with the Autocentre once
the initial check is done and a separate quote will be provided if necessary.
