Making the right
choice for your car
Wheel alignment is also sometimes referred to as wheel tracking and should be part of standard vehicle maintenance undertaken by your local branch. This involves adjusting the angles of the wheels to the recommended position as outlined in a vehicle’s manufacturer specification. It contributes to the reduction of tyre wear and to ensure the optimum performance and handling of the vehicle on the road.
Every car has a specific steering track setting for its front wheels. If the setting is knocked out of alignment; by striking a kerb or hitting a pothole or simply by wear or tear, tyre wear can be rapid.
Incorrect wheel alignment becomes obvious when either the inner or outer edge of the tyres become unevenly worn or a ‘feathering’ effect becomes noticeable. If you suspect your wheel alignment has been disturbed – have it checked at Tyre City UK immediately. We recommend having it checked every 6 months or when tyres or steering components have been changed.
All new vehicles are sold with their wheels correctly aligned and adjusted, drivers should undertake initial checks on their new vehicle within the first 3 months; this will minimise the possibility of the tyre specifications drifting outside of the manufacturer’s guidelines. Failure to check this may lead to unnecessary pulling or wear on the tyre. Drivers may not notice potential defects at first but after time it can cause lasting damage. Typical side effects are steering vibration which can cause driver fatigue through constant pressure or the vehicle pulling to one side.
Tyre wear is not the only area of the vehicle that can suffer if correct wheel alignment is not set, braking distance, driving quality and even fuel economy are all affected.
Typical signs of incorrect wheel tracking:
- Uneven or feathered tyre wear
- Steering wheel vibration
- Drag or pulling
- Audible distress while turning corners
Incorrect wheel alignment, can also apply undue pressure to tyres which can cause them to lean into one another. When that happens your vehicle faces resistance on the road surface making the car work much harder to drive along in a straight line therefore burning up more fuel than normal which is bad for your wallet and the environment.
