Wheel alignment is the process of setting a vehicle’s wheels to point in the optimal direction to provide enhanced handling, comfortable driving and longer lasting tyres. The correct position for your wheels is specified by the vehicle manufacturer and your wheels are adjusted to their correct specification during manufacture.
Your wheel alignment can be affected by impact caused by minor driving occurrences such as hitting kerbs or driving over potholes and also by any wear to the suspension system. In addition, any work you may have carried out to the wheels, tyres or suspension of your vehicle may also impact your wheel alignment.
Checking and correcting wheel alignment is a relatively simple and affordable task. The process consists of checking and adjusting the angles of your wheels to ensure that they face the geometrically precise direction.
