Why 4 Wheel Alignment is Important?
Vehicles leaving the factory have wheels that have been aligned, tested and verified so there are unlikely to be any problem with a wheel alignment.
Naturally over time even the most careful of drivers will find that their wheels gradually become out of alignment.
How does this happen.
There are various different reasons for wheels or tyres to become mis-aligned with the vast majority of cases due to driving conditions.
Most areas have road surfaces that have potholes and regularly driving ion uneven or poorly maintained roads will in time cause the alignment to be knocked out of alignment. The same can be said for riding up against kerbstones.
Signs I may need an alignment check
It can be tricky to spot mis aligned wheels but they can have a major impact.
- Uneven wear & tear of your tyres
- The vehicle tracking to the left or right
- Pulling to one side or another under breaking
- Vibration through the steering wheel
- Having correct wheel alignment can help in many ways.
- Tyre life is improved
- Better fuel efficiency

- Safer driving

What is involved in Wheel Alignment?
Many people ask us wheat is the difference between 2 wheel alignment and 4 wheel alignment?
A 2-wheel alignment which can also be described as known as a front-end alignment, means our specialists technicians perform the service on only the front wheels, which may include a camber, toe, and caster adjustment. In some cases, a ‘thrust angle adjustment’ may be necessary, to make certain that all four wheels are perfectly aligned with eachother.
4-wheel alignment means that all four wheels are adjusted – this is most commonly needed for 4 wheel drive vehicles, especially where they have independent suspension.
