Wheel Alignment is important as wheels out of sync can cause abnormal tyre wear. The overall life of the tyre would, therefore, be reduced. This will result in you needing to replace your tyres sooner than with proper alignment. Having tyres properly aligned will also help increase fuel economy, as they’ll be able to roll freely, rather than drag. Whereas, having your wheels out of alignment can reduce fuel economy by as much as 10%.
The tell-tale signs of wheel misalignment are usually things along the line of –
- Uneven Tyre wear (also known as abnormal tyre wear)
- Drag or pulling
- Steering wheel vibration
If you are experiencing any of these issues, it could be possible that your wheels are out of alignment, having this checked could solve the problem or help diagnose potential worn or damaged parts. When having your wheels aligned, we will also centre your steering wheel, check your suspension for wear or damage and also check your tyres.
