Tyres & Tracking / Wheel Alignment
Why should I check my wheel alignment?
Ever noticed your vehicle is pulling to the left/right on a straight, flat road? For some reason your tyres are wearing unevenly? Then you should go and get your Wheel Alignment checked and possibly adjusted if necessary. If your vehicles wheel are not aligned correctly, then this will cause abnormal wear to your tyres and therefore add extra cost for new tyres.
Always have your vehicles wheel alignment checked when:
Your vehicle has hit something e.g a kerb
Your tyres are wearing unevenly
When having new tyres fitted and you would like to maintain them longer
When you replace steering or suspension components e.g track rod ends/suspension arms
You notice your vehicle pulling to the left/right on a straight, flat road
Your steering wheel remains at an angle when driving in a straight line
This is a simple process and can be done at our garage in Burton-on-Trent
Why is wheel alignment important?

What is the difference between wheel alignment and wheel balancing?
Wheel alignment and wheel balancing are two completely different processes. Wheel Alignment, sometimes known as tracking is the correct adjustment of the wheel angles specified by your vehicle manufacturer, where as Wheel Balancing allows the wheels to spin without causing a horrible vibration.
