Wheel Alignment

Dec 12

Improper wheel alignment can cause your car to run less efficiently and will lead to faster wear and tear on your tyres. Thus it’s important to have your wheel alignments checked.

It’s recommended that a mechanic should check your alignment as a part of your annual car service or tyre change. Wheel alignment shouldn’t change unless steering parts become worn or damaged or your car has been involved in a collision. 

Although wheel alignments do not need to be performed that often they should be checked immediately after your car or wheels have been through a high impact collision (e.g hitting a pot-hole in high speeds or using off-road tracks for long distances).

Wheel alignments should only be performed by a Qualified Service Technician who have access to state-of-the-art realignment tools and know your vehicle’s specifications. A Qualified Service Technician will ensure the tyres to be aligned accurately to the exact specifications required for your car.
