2 Wheel Alignment
Signs of poor alignment can include vibrations in the interior of the car or in the steering column. Other symptoms are potentially more dangerous, such as degraded braking, reduced grip while cornering and a greater tendency to aquaplane on wet roads. A wheel alignment check should therefore be performed at least annually or preferably 6-monthly. 2-wheel alignment equipment is sufficient for the majority of vehicles.
Regular 2-wheel alignment can optimise your car's handling and help to minimise the wear on suspension and steering components. It also extends the lifetime of your tyres by ensuring that the correct part of the tread contacts the road at all times.
Perform a visual inspection of your tyres at least monthly. Extra wear on the inner or outer edges may be due to misalignment. Any unusual tyre wear should always be checked at a garage. Contact us today using our online contact form.
