Tracking or wheel alignment, is not only important for good hold on the road, it also helps you get more miles out of your tyres. If you ever clip a curb or drive through a pot hole, you might find that your wheel alignment is thrown out.
At D&D Tyres, we will check the angle and direction at which the tyres are set. These will be checked against the manufacturers’ specifications to ensure your vehicle is aligned correctly.
Benefits of Correctly Aligned Tyres
Longer lasting tyres
Misaligned wheels can increase tyre wear. This means you’ll need to replace them sooner. You can save yourself time and tyres by checking your alignment regularly.
More miles for your money
If your wheels are misaligned they have to work harder, which means your car will use more fuel.
Misalignment may mean that your car pulls to one side, or that the steering wheel vibrates. With total alignment, road shock is absorbed and your car will be easier to handle.
When we align your wheels we will also check the suspension system. This enables us to spot worn parts before they cause any costly problems.
Signs of incorrect Wheel Alignment
- Uneven tyre wear
- If your vehicle pulls to the left or right whilst driving straight
- If the steering wheel is off centre when driving in a straight line
- If there is steering wheel vibration.
