Why do it?

Here, we’re going to lay out all of the benefits of wheel alignment, which involves making adjustments to give you less rolling road resistance.  


Fuel Efficiency 

Misalignment can decrease fuel mileage by up to 10%. Instead of rolling freely, misaligned tyres drag , giving you more resistance between tarmac and tyre ( Rolling road resistance )That means if your wheels aren’t adjusted properly, you could be spending more money on fuel and tyres. Alignment correction could help you conserve fuel and fill up less often.


Smoother Ride

When your tyres are misaligned, your vehicle tends to pull left or right or even a vibration can be felt. A wheel alignment smooths out your ride and contributes to a better behind-the-wheel experience.


Improved Steering

If your vehicles wheels are out of alignment, it’s harder to steer. You may even find yourself holding the steering wheel at an awkward angle to drive straight, or veering from side to side. This lack of control increases your likelihood of being involved in an accident. Proper wheel alignment means you’re able to steer clear of those problems and maintain stable control of your vehicle. 


Less Repairs

If your tyres are misaligned , hitting a pothole for example, can cause way more damage to your tyres and suspension system with a bad alignment. Spending a small amount of money on a wheel alignment can prevent you from bigger repairs down the road. 

Longer Lasting Tyres

Misalignment may lead to premature and uneven tire wear. If you wait to get a wheel alignment until it’s too late, you could find you are buying tyres more frequently. If you’re close to your vehicle right now, check to see if they show any signs of these three types of uneven or premature tyre wear:

  • Feathering: Tyres become “feathered” when the tread is smooth or worn down on one side and sharp on the other. This type of tyre wear occurs when there's a combination of improper alignment settings. eg. replacement of track rods, track for ends and drag links.

  • Camber wear: Is the inside or outside edge of your tyre tread looking much more worn than the centre of the tread? It could be due to camber wear. Camber refers to the angle of your tyres on the chassis frame, and it can be positive or negative depending on the angle. Positive camber (tilting outward) is usually helpful to keep recreational vehicles stable, while negative camber (tilting inward) helps high-performance vehicles handle turns. While some positive or negative camber is good, too much of either is bad.

  • Toe wear: Picture your tyre treads, then zoom in. Those individual sections are called tyre “tread blocks.” When one side of a tread block appears to be wearing down faster than the other in your tyre’s rolling direction, it’s called toe wear. A symptom of toe wear can be noise or vibration.
