Wheel alignment, or tracking, is the process of ensuring your vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position, as per the car manufacturer’s specifications. Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.Wheel alignment problems can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. It is important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.
Checking your wheel alignment on your car or van regularly can prolong the life of your tyres by up to 12,000 miles and increase fuel efficiency due to the reduced rolling resistance with the road – saving you pounds at the pump. Using Laser Technology we can help check and reset your vehicles tracking.

If you are having to put air in a tyre regulary or just not sure we can check this for you as in some cases the cause is not the tyre itself or a puncture and can be the seal or valve.
Wheel balancing and alignment is very important and will prolong the life of your tyres and help with them not wearing unevenly. Alignment can be knocked out by hitting bad potholes or kerbs. It is recommended to have this done on a regular basis.
